    does anyone here offer a resin kit of one or know of were i can get one? or hell does anyone here have a rotocasting machine and feel like modeling one and running it through?

    oh yaah the bryar pistol for those of you who may not know what it is, it is the side arm of kyle katarn, main character in the dark forces series of games.

    I always liked this one made by Jedi Arkos. I couldn't find him on the member roster here.

    This picture is from the back cover of the graphic novel.

    Arkos used to post on ASAP and the Rebel Legion but I haven't seen him in quite a while.

    IIRC there is a build up of on in the Blaster section on ASAP.

    If I'm not mistaken, the build up posted on ASAP is mine.

    If you want, I can copy and paste it here too.

    iirc someone did another buildup that was a total hardware job. looked damned near perfect. i think the pic i saw of it had it on a display stand (showing a profile) and that data disc thingie on the side of it.

    its been a few years though. right after JK2 came out for the PC i think.

    its been a toss up through the years as to which is cooler, that or the GK han solo. im leaning towards the bryar myself :)

    *bumping this thread up*

    Does anyone know where to find a resin version of this blaster?

    If not, would someone with the available skills and time make a heavy resin version for me (and for some others who would be interested? ^^ )?

    Seems simple enough to make... Are you a builder?

    No, sorry I am not. That is why I would appreciate the making of someone else with the right amount of cash if he would be willing to do this :angel

    At the moment, I just have this pic of Arkos´ gun. I did have 2 more pics from the bryar blaster, but they were rather sketches than original shots. I thought that picture would to do it (because of the three main perspectives), but I will look what I can do.

    The "newer" Bryar gun looks like this:

    But I didnt like that design much. I am more a fan of the old classic design.

    (oh boy, i LOVE this prop!)

    Seem you found a pic of Koda Vonnor's (Bill Costigan's) blaster. He made a really nice version of this blaster. He commissioned machined parts out of metal and plastic to get it really accurate and solid.

    Lots of pics at his Photobucket account.

    Does anyone know what happened to the real prop used in the game?

    The blaster reminds me of the Batman Begins grapple gun.

    I could repost the tutorial I used to make mine if anyone is interested. I have sold the pice since I don't costume Rebel Costumes anymore. But it was easy to do.

    By the way: Would any builder be so kind to try to make such blaster? (Arkos-style or Koda Vonnor-style)

    For trooping & shows etc, here's a quickie Bryar type blaster.

    First, get a Super Soaker Devastator (or one of it's clones), break out the Dremel and whatnot.
    Chop the Devastator down & detail as you prefer:

    Sorry - CGI propmaking this, as I haven't found the base gun in the UK yet - it's a little early for summer! I have seen them in person. :)

    has anyone considered using an old ramset j20? with a few modifications it could really pull off the look and you'd have that heft. though probably not a good one to take to cons (as it technically has the ability to fire an actual bullet) but an excellent display piece. thoughts?

    I am working on one of these right now. Mine is based off of the first Dark Forces game, so it is a pistol form as opposed to the JK2 version and beyond.

    It is all wood and epoxy right now. I have the body done. The handle is almost done (I just thought of a really good way to add to it).

    I basically started with a block of wood and started carving and sanding. Hopefully, I will have some pictures so you can take a look at my progress.


    I am surprised at how well it is turning out.

    I'm looking into sculpting either the Bryar Pistol from the back cover of the Dark Forces book or the K-16 Bryar Pistol from the newer Star Wars: Battlefront game. Once I get started, I'll post progress pics here, assuming this thread isn't dead.
