Well, scottjua what would you like me to do about that? I can understand your frustration.
I can remove the pics that you lay claim to, or give you a shoutout as a generous patron of knowledge.
The pics in the first and second posts were all posted publicly and I have not removed any watermarks.
Dick is a common nickname for Richard, it was just lighthearted wordplay.

scarf man can I make a suggestion. You may want to put Echo 3 and Echo 7 together. Lessen the confusion as to the blaster itself. It’s already confusing as is with all the different variations. People may believe now that there are two different Hoth versions. Yes it’s obvious that they did have infact two blaster props on set in Norway but it’s not obvious as to how they where used. The pictures of the actors (Mark & Harrison) holding them looks to be the exact same “Hoth” prop itself. Not different ones. Just an FYI you may want to consider..

I’m still interested in continuing to curate the info. and pics in this thread. I’ve not heard back from scottjua about what he would like me to do about his pics, or indeed which pics he owns, so I’ve decided to leave the pics alone for a bit.
If you see the value to the community inherent in threads like these, please bump up this thread and participate.
I‘m still looking for clear moderately sized pics of screen grabs, the ESB Bespin, ROTJ bunker, Stembridge, and hero props.
Please no collages, extreme closeups, or personal watermarks (unless you own the pic).

I don't think any of these are "owned" by anyone, and none of them are private images. Please correct me RPF if there is something I missed. I found these through pintrest, the RPF and google over the years, or screenshotted them from the movie myself. The PropBlog shot was color corrected by someone on here publicly

I don't have many good ESB ones that aren't Scott's :D

ESB Heroes

ROTJ "Hero" (I think this was meant to be the hero with pop rivets)

The base gun was fitted with a bull barrel by film armorers Bapty & Co. for the film “The Naked Runner” 1967, staring Frank Sinatra. That same gun was later rented from Bapty by the production “The Star Wars” in 1976.

I knew this about the blaster prop. It really tickled me in Solo when Beckett started taking all the sniper parts off the pistol before he gave it to Han. I'd love to talk to someone in the prop department and see if it was on purpose.

I just filled in a bit on the ROTJ hero.
Still seeking any good pics of the Stembrige live firing blaster, & the ESB Bespin.
As always, archives, bts, & stills are much appreciated.
