    Welcome to my world!
    This BLADE RUNNER BLASTER TOMENOSUKE HCG EXCLUSIVE EDITION 1/150- IN HAND - SOLD OUT! is being sold on ebay for $2,499.99 price reflects it's rare as rocking horse kaka status I pressume.
    This is what I was alluding to in my earlier post.
    DarthChrisDK answered my query quite well but I'm a little dubious as I read elsewhere that the would not be as standard again and I think I'm right in saying that the blued receiver was something particular to the HCG Exclusive Edition.
    So it's safe to we'll only be sure for certain when those that have pre-ordered receive them and let us know..

    I'm confused here. Will HCG have the worldcon edition with the blued receiver and gradual red lights?

    Are you speaking about the unltra limited edition seem in this thread in post #407?
    That is not coming to HCG and was so limited that it is most surely sold out already.

    Since you seam like the person to ask @Moviefreak, if I finish paying before this month any chance I’ll get one of the incoming batch?
    Call customer service tomorrow and ask them. I don’t know how many of the incoming blasters are already allocated to paid in full orders. They should be able answer this for you.

    I think the Tomenosuke is a massproduced prop now!

    But a great one...

    This must be so, I can finally put my curious cat brain to bed (until they come out with another totally unnecessary version that we will totally drool over) that is.
    Thanks Moviefreak.

    Maybe they should make their all singin' all dancin' version of K's blaster and claim to have built it "bolt by bolt" without any mention of a certain DH.

    Where did you read about the HCG of 150 pieces? Just curious why we are talking about that.

    Reading your posts it seems like you got it confused a bit. Mixing up the old HCG Pro up with the Worldcon edition maybe?

    Someone else was asking it and I was referring to the older edition in relation that question not the information you gave me.

    I recently made an off the cuff comment in post #489 regarding someone coming up with a fix to the gradual led light up for those who's blaster don't have this feature.
    So my question is would it actually be possible to tweak the circuit board or has anyone discussed the possibility of offering up solution for this issue?

    Maybe if you contact Tomenosuke, they can provide one either at a cost or for free. I don't know, but it might be worth asking them.

    We are hoping that ourselves at HCG.
    We literally have all the boxes assembled, we purchased extra bubble wrap and packing peanuts, and stocked up on extra paper for customs letters and labels for shipping. We are ready.... and waiting.
    Sounds like the days before Christmas :-)

    Just came across this blog by Shinji Nakako of Tomenosuke.

    https://toysrevil.blogspot.co.uk/201...or-byebye.html

    Unsure whether having "new plans underway as well" is referring to new plans for the blaster or other Tomenosuke projects in general. The I read it meant having new plans beyond the version, so could this be an assembly kit or maybe even a 40th Anniversary model???

    Tomorrow is my last payment including shipping. Iím pretty excited about having this one paid-off.

    And so the wait begins...

    Also waiting for that mail saying "READY TO SHIP", At least my BR 2049 Blu-Ray Blaster is coming tomorrow, a small comfort until having the real deal.

    Just a quick question. On closer inspection of my new 2049 Tomen, I have noticed that if I hold the grip firmly and give it a gentle shake, the main part of the gun slightly wobbles from side to side. Before I attempt to start taking it apart, does anyone know what part needs tightening up so I know what to look out for?

    @Kylo1 can you be a little more specific about which part is wobbling?

    The whole of the rest of the gun seems slightly loose from the grip. If I hold the handle grip tightly and gently shake from side to side, there is a little play with the rest of the gun as if the handle isn't tightly attached to rest of the gun. Not excessive play but definitely doesn't feel solid. Hard to put into words so hope this description helps.

    These are the three(indicated by my thumb) that actually make contact with the revolver grip. Tighten them and you should be fine.

    Thanks for that. I’ve taken the grips off and tightened those highlighted as much as I dare. It’s still not 100% solid but certainly better thank you. I’m planning on leaving this Tomen in an “as new” condition which is why I’m being so careful with it.

    @Kylo1
    I think it's more likely to be the interior grip connected to the main frame. It's pretty simple to tighten and I don't think it requires a lot of tinkering. In my video below, I've started it at about the section where I add it. It's the old Pro, but I believe it's more or less the same on the new versions.
