    Hello ! This is my first post here on the forums, so I thought I'd share my 3 foot long Ion Blaster based off of the Masterpiece Prime version. I built this from scratch myself from my own plans. It disassembles into 2 parts for easy transport and storage. I hope you guys like it !

    A very clean finish for your first custom, a lot of skills you used here will carry over to action figures if you go that route aswell.

    Next, make one that fires!

    That's pretty cool. I'd like to see a tutorial on how to make one, or at least a list of what materials you used.

    As a Prime fan, let me tell you that is certifiable bad-ass. I.....really want one. Amazing work, and it's also very clean, which is the problem with most other "props". Great work. Now i want one so I can hang it on the wall. :thumb 

    In your searches for other guns, did you come across anyone who tried to make one "lifesize"? I thought i remember someone doing it, but don't remember if they finished it.
