Happy Star Wars Day, vintage mates! The 4th of May is the annual holiday celebration of the Star Wars franchise, known as: May The Fourth Be With You – which is a play on the expression ‘may the force be with you’. TVTA always makes a post on this day, usually showing off some Star Wars collectables or print advertising. This year we take a look at some Star Wars blasters, both big and small, direct from the collection of TVTA!
Below: The Imperial Gunnery exclusive replica blasters.
These life-size blasters were made in a limited number as tribute to the original plastic weapons sold with Star Wars 3.75 inch Kenner action figures. The blasters were available on The Imperial Gunnery (TIG) Star Wars forum, and quickly sold out due to their faithfullness to the original toys and their heavy-duty resin design. TIG commissioned five different blasters iirc, and I was lucky to snag a Rebel, Imperial and Princess Leia blaster.

Thanks for looking! MTFBWY!
