Just got my blaster guys. For the price, I don't think it's too bad but there are a few issues. The build quality is a bit mixed and rough. The trigger does not sit real well and paint app could definitely be better. It lights up nicely, uses two AAA batteries and it has a magnetic back plate that makes access pretty easy - plus it has a little stand too. No sound, but a small sound chip or board might be able to be fit inside (there is a little extra room). Overall for a prop I've always wanted it's not too bad for the money. But, it could use a little TLC, paint touch up on the silver trim areas and a sound chip too.
