In this tutorial I'll teach you how to make a pretty good Han Solo blaster replica using a children's toy to start with.
Han Solo toy blaster
Drill bit (1/16 inch)
"Hole saw" drill bit (about 1/2 inch)
Painters or masking tape
Step 1: Get your gun
I am making this Han Solo blaster for my Halloween costume. For that reason I want it to look real but it doesn't need to pass for an authentic movie replica. There are a lot of options online but I found the cheapest option to be the Han Solo toy blaster.
I ordered mine from Wal-Mart and they shipped it to my local store for free. I was worried it would be smaller, like for children's hands, but it was actually a great size, probably even the same as the movie version.
