  1. I'm looking for an approvable DLT-19 blaster for my MEPD trooper.  I would really appreciate some more information.  I've tried to assemble one myself but I failed.

  2. PRAETORIAN BLASTERS - DLT-19

    Hah. I'm excited to see this one. This big guy is like giving birth..... very painful. The way we are molding this one is going to look so good. It's a lot of parts to cast to make one blaster but in the end, it will look far better than anything we've ever made in the past. More accurate, less of a seam, more detail, more love, etc.

    Hey Guys. Just an update. We're nearing completion on this new DLT-19 project. We've done a few things that we think will make you all proud. We've molded the receiver cover separately so you will get some detail and depth where is should be on the receiver. We've separated the barrel tip for venting to get rid of the loss of detail at the butt stock. The charging handle will be removable and will have a threaded steel insert in the blaster body. This will give you a metal anchor for the charging handle that won't strip out. Bipod comes glued in place and is not functional. The barrel tip detail is molded separately to give a deeper, more realistic business end to the blaster. These will come painted black as a standard. The fins will come wire wrapped as a standard option. We will offer weathering and butt stock woodgrain (although not canon). Just FYI... A bakelite stock that is painted black is canon for the film.

    Hey guys. We can fit 4 more people into this weeks run. We are still doing the FREE t-shirt shirt thing for next week or two until we run out so let us know if you are intending on getting on this run or next. We can put aside a shirt for you. Here is the link for the interest list or you can PM Nathan (slave1pilot) or myself and we will manually put you on the list. http://praetorianblasters.com/interest/

    These will be continuously available as long as there is a demand. We're working on a extremely elite version of the E-11 also. Just not sure how it will be received. MG-34 is our priority after this week.
  8. PRAETORIAN BLASTERS - DLT-19

    Not sure on the pricing yet. We have to finish the molds and cast a set of parts first. These are being cast in multiple parts vs. the old way we used to do it (one piece). This will ensure that you will get better detail and a bit more accuracy. Our old MG-34 that we used was not overly accurate.

    Good News Guys!!!! We got the free shirts in and are packaging them for shipment. Watch for the little black envelopes in the mail.
  10. If you are looking for something under $100, there are some really great tutorials that people have done for modifying Kenner blasters or building from PVC tubing. There also used to be a pvc blaster builders club. Not sure if they are still out there or not but I'd give those a shot for sure. Some pretty cool stuff.
  11. PRAETORIAN BLASTERS - DLT-19

    As with the E-11s, we will be shipping out free t-shirts with the DLT-19s. We'll give more info on this as we have it.
  12. PRAETORIAN BLASTERS - DLT-19

    We're looking at being up and running with the first castings of the DLT-19 in two weeks or less.
  13. PRAETORIAN BLASTERS - DLT-19

    No problem. Believe me. We would love to give you guys everything you ask for but unfortunately, we just have to settle for most of it.
  14. PRAETORIAN BLASTERS - DLT-19

    You are correct. Could we make these two pieces and make them able to connect? Of course. Would we? No. The reason is above but I will continue to explain. These are considered by some to be "expensive" blasters. When you compare the cost of a rubber blaster (ie. Praetorian, HFX, etc) to a resin blaster, you will find that there is a obvious cost difference. The entire reason behind rubber blasters is structure and durability. Making pieces that separate will, guaranteed, eventually become loose and destroy the structure of the prop. The second reason which is probably more of a concern to everyone else...Cost. These are not held together with pvc tubing or anything like that where the plastic is made to press fit together. I'm not sure how the Doppy blaster is assembled and disassembled but in our case, the main armature that provides the lightweight structure is a length of fiberglass rod. The additional work and fasteners required to do this properly would make this blaster completely cost prohibitive for everyone except a very few. Structure, durability and quality...

    This should be a lot of fun. I've wanted to do this blaster this way for over 10 years now. Really looking forward to seeing this one done right.
