thank you so much Phil, that is very nice of you!
I have to admit I was extremely worried about the interest there would be for this project since it's a prop from the prequel trilogy. I'm glad to see the prop still brings some enthousiasm :)

There's a lot of us who love, love, love the production design of the prequels and want to see more from them. Especially after the ST came out and disappointed (visually and otherwise), the PT is looking pretty good.

What a wonderful project and a beautiful account of the process! Fantastic photos of every step, it makes me want to make one myself! You've done an incredible job and your attention to detail has really paid off.

It's funny how, while the prequels aren't my favourite Star Wars movies by a long shot, there is a special nostalgia I have to the period of time leading up to the release of The Phantom Menace. From 1998-1999, little 15-16 year old me was getting pretty excited looking at any and all promotional photos and trailers for the first Star Wars movie that would premiere during my lifetime (having been born a couple months after the release of ROTJ) and soaking in all the fun and fantastic designs of all the props and costumes. The first prop replica I ever made was a "hardware store" replica of young Obi-Wan's lightsaber. The first found parts I got my hands on were some Staedtler Liquid Roller pen caps and a Gillette Ladies Sensor Excell razor. It was something of a formative time for me in my growing obsession with props and costumes that has had a strong influence on the subsequent 20+ years since then. I find myself revisiting some of those props these days, re-sparking a bit of that excitement, and this amazing blaster project is certainly contributing to that!

Again, great job and I look forward to seeing more!

I didn’t get that memo...
Nostalgia of people who grew up in that generation of Star Wars movies.
As well as naturally the comparison between what was the best intent executed questionably by some vs an absolute butchering of the franchise.

Still plenty to love vs not much to love.

But I'm pretty biased all that being said.
