    Hello all. I first want to say how much you guys rock. I've been following all the obi Wan saber discoveries and think it's an amazing group effort-great detective work and a wonderful sharing of ideas and info for a common goal.
    I'm a MR collector myself and have about 20 pieces mostly lightsabers. However, I do have a Leia DDC Defender Blaster SE and had a question about it:
    The MR blurb states that the fins behind the muzzle are from a British Plumbing adapter. Parts of SW has it as part of a plastic model airplane engine. Does anyone know which is correct? Does anyone have good pics of the original prop?
    Thanks..

    I'm skeptical about that plumbing adaptor theory.

    One reason is because it would have to made of either metal or rubber. Looking at the reference photos of the Han Hero blaster, part of the grill is clearly chipped off. That means it's probably cast metal or plastic.

    Also, the fact that the model engines had pistons running through them means that the part was hollow. It would be a lot easier to attach to the gun. Why would a plumbing fixture be hollow if it's meant to be used as a plunger?
