Headed to Reno for the weekend.

Someone said there is a Rebel Blaster in the Planet Hollywood there. Is that correct? Is it in Reno and is it an Empire or Jedi version?

That was me. It is a resin one, and while I forget which film people said it was from, I know it wasn't the one you were working on. I think it was Lonepigeon and TK818 who knew exactly which movie it was from.

Also, it was in South Lake Tahoe, not Reno. Unless there's two?

South Lake had the Rebel Blaster, Reno had the Stormtrooper blaster.

Typical to PH, they had the plaques/labels backwards! They had the Rebel blaster labeled as the trooper gun, and vice versa.

This was 2-4 years ago.

Last year, PH in Orlando had a Rebel blaster on display...

Ah, thanks so much for the info!

Well, does anyone know anything else good to check out at the PH in Reno?

HOLY CRAP!!!


Do you know what that is?
ItÂ’s a pic of the ANH resin gun. And even better itÂ’s a pic of the magazine side! I have been looking for more info on that side of the gun forever as have a lot of other people.

Please tell me you have more pics and closeup pics!

Where is this gun?

Oh, and it is (Was? Not sure its still there...) at the South Lake Tahoe PH. About an hour from the Reno store.

How can you tell its the ANH? I'm not as familiar with the rebel blasters. That looks (to me) like the one that is still in South Lake, with the fat trigger guard and I believe it is facing the same direction. It is still mislabeled as a storm trooper blaster, although the display case is different from the one that PH posted. The case I saw had a B&W still of some Death Star troopers. It made the misidentification funnier, since you have a clear photo of an E-11, which of course looked quite different from the Planet Hollywood "Stormtrooper Blaster" right in front of it.

Thanks for the info about the E-11 in Reno, I'll have to go check that out sometime.

As of last winter, it was still there, but it was at eye level, right behind a table. I'm still kicking myself for not bringing my camera. There were several other sci-fi guns (non-SW), but most of those were higher up and hard to see. If you don't make it there on this trip, I'll try to get some more pictures for you when I'm up there this winter. If you go to the Reno one, could you take a picture of the Cylon gun for me? I'm curious to see what that looks like.

PHArchivist - You are my new hero! Thank you so much (Thankyaverymuch)!

TK626 – Yes, looks to be what most consider the ANH resin gun, used by both the Rebel Fleet troopers and the Death Star troopers. I don’t know if Chris has updated the POSW site yet, but he had plans on listing pic of each of the variations of this gun from each movie. I know you can see a good pic of the ESB version on POSW site.

And I am going to try and get over the PH in Reno and take a bunch of pics, I will look for the Cylon gun.

Humm, now I am thinking of taking a trip over the SL Tahoe too.

I'm not an expert either, but from what I know, I *think* the ESB has a lot more greeblies on it.

Hate to break it to you, but the last time I was in Reno two months ago, the Reno Planet Hollywood was no more.
It has been replaced by some new restaurant..
Don't know if the one in Lake Tahoe is still there.
