    I have been waiting it seems an eternity to find an Alderaan pistol, and SithPlanet came through, not only with an amazing & accurate piece, but a fantastic finish job.

    Here's some pics. They are simply great. (I bought two).

    The trigger is aluminum and actually works (well it doesn't actual blast :))

    I understand the other Captain Antilles Alderaan pistol is in the works. Wahoo.

    From Alderaan Base....

    Wow, nice looking piece, and more attractive then some of the Prequel pistols I must say. Nice addition to any collection.

    Very nice. That is the sexiest pistol from the Star Wars Universe. Hard to believe that Amidala's 'Coleman camp lighter' and that beauty came from the same era. I can jive with the big blocky bulky Blastech (DL-44 esp) coming about years after 'civilization' has fallen.

    Soo.. Anyone have a cheap resin kit? ;)

    Why do you hate showoff threads? Lookin' at props is what this place is about. Very nice piece, as well.

    Is there background (in-movie, not production) info on this blaster? With the trigger guard and handgrip it's got the feel of Jango's pistols, which were made by Weststar or something similar.

    besides the clone blaster that is the only other PT blaster I have liked since I saw it.

    saw one on ebay but was leery about bidding.

    Nice looking blaster. Very sleek.
    You say you bought it complete and painted? They did some nice work.

    The one on ebay is also from SithPlanet, and I think it was a low fixed price. The paint job alone is worth half the price. Solid resin plus aluminum parts & trigger action.

    Nice enough to display, but not so expensive you wouldn't do up an Alderaan costume & holster it or pose with it at a Con.

    As much as I like this weapon, I think it would have been cooler if Bail would have carried a varient based on the DDC Defender.

    I don't think the replica maker had a say in that :)

    I'm pretty sire Jedi Lawja was refering to the film production staffs' decision, not the replica makers. ILM missed an oportunity for a subtle tie-in.

    Never nice piece. Thanks for sharing.

    Very nice design and construction, very anime looking. But I don't remember seeing that pistol in the movie, can anyone tell what scene it was in?

    Very nice blaster, I must admit I'd never really paid much attention to it before this thread, but it looks very sleek.

    I'm with you, that's exactly what I meant too. As an aside my OdiWan72 Margolin (real de-activated) based Leia ROTJ (shorter version) is a prized possesion.

    While most of EpIII I think is a cool "tweening" exercise of transition/transformation, you are right that this gun has to stand on it's own and doesn't do the DDC pre-cursor so I agree. My point was just judging the Bail on it's own merits :)

    Same here, I love my ROTJ Leia blaster.

    I actually thought that Bail's blaster fit right in. Alderaan is supposed to be a planet that has a lot of artists and people who value it, so it makes sense that their representatives would have stylistic weapons. The only reason Leia had the blaster she had was because Alderaan gives up its weapons after the Clone Wars, so presumably they had to smuggle in weapons from outside.

    Agree.

    Also, like I said before, these are so inexpensive you should get two, then you can be a Rootin' Tootin' Bail :)

    Pictures don't do justice, mine anyways :)

    The Aluminum bits are great, and it's good to see a real trigger action vs a completely static prop.

    Great paint.

    Holy crap that's a cool pistol... I'd never even seen one until right now.

    I think that's one of the coolest-looking guns I've seen in sci-fi in general... :love

    wow... looks great. its a shame that MR didnt take advantage and make small runs of pieces like this. of course, then we'd all complain because it didnt play a role in the film. =P
