Not entirely a "new acquisition", but after being lost in the mail all month, the grips for the Luke Skywalker ANH lightsaber I'm putting together finally arrived. I reconstructed it from this really inaccurate prop I bought off Etsy.
Just got this beautifully detailed E-11 blaster carbine in the mail. It's made from PVC plastic with metal details like the rail and the trigger guard. The pommel cap comes unscrewed to add some weight to it, which I did through a thick metal rod. Now this thing feels beefy! Like a the real thing! But what really blows me away are the details. It doesn't have the sticker decals... yet, but it's got a lot of other great details that really bring realism like a dent in the stock (which unfortunately does not fold out, ah well can't have it all), pitting in the PVC and the counter even says Hengstler on it!
It's a little thing but I had to share my excitement about this one, I tried telling the wife about it but she just rolled her eyes and walked out of the room. I have been searching for this little guy for at least the last 10 years and have never been able to find one for less than $150. I was able to snag this one for $70 last night and am beyond excited to finally add it to the collection. The little things sometimes make me the happiest!
