My Han Solo DL-44 Blaster is the result of years of fanatical research. I've procured all of the original elements possible including Veron model kit cylinders and pushrods, Hensoldt-Wetzlar scopes, and MG-81 flash suppressor and adapter. I've spec'd them all in minute detail. I've personally examined the re-assembled original blaster (sold at auction the summer of 2022 for $1,200,000) and measured it every conceivable way including weight. I've searched out the best manufacturers for each of the parts required to duplicate this prop, down to the screws. What I'm offering here is incredibly close to the real prop.

How fanatical?  Well, I've reproduced every detail that can be reproduced, even details you will never see. Such as the barrel that was constructed with a heavy steel barrel cover, threaded to accept a rifle barrel for a Frank Sinatra spy movie.  Such as a COMPLETE Hensold-Wetzlar scope with ALL INTERNAL PARTS, identical to the original scopes. Such as using 3 Veron model engine cylinders to construct the "grille". The scope mounting nuts have straight knurls. The scope tubes are real steel, not cheaper aluminum. 

The "battle worn" finish features hand applied wear, scratches, chips, rust, and scuffs to make it as close as possible in appearance to the actual prop as it was used on screen. It's painstaking work, but the end result is a feast for the eyes, I assure you.

Grab one of these beautiful props while I can still make them! (I'm not getting any younger!)

Please note: This prop is currently being updated with exciting new features and far more accurate details. The photos shown here are of the current model, which will be updated as soon as the new, improved parts are ready.  

Please note that this replica does not hold or fire real ammunition.

Disclaimer: Despite copying the lenses from real original Hensoldt-Wetzlar scopes, they unfortunately do not focus for distance.

 


QUESTIONS ABOUT INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

 

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, we do.  But we do not know if these are legal in your country.  That is for you to find out.

What about customs?

Paying the import duty your government imposes is your responsibility.  Import duty is determined by your government after the shipment arrives in your country.  We have no idea what your government will charge you to import anything we sell.  We will not refund you the shipping charges if the parcel is returned because you refuse to pay import duty.

How much is shipping to the UK?  Finland?  Botswana?

Add the item to your shopping cart, go to your cart, then enter your shipping address.  You will see real time quotes from USPS and UPS with the available service options and prices.  These are the ACTUAL charges with nothing added.  We make no money on shipping.  

Do you ever have trouble shipping these to another country?

Occasionally, yes.  We do sometimes experience delays with blasters going through customs, since they are difficult to classify.  It is not unusual to experience delays up to two months in customs.  USPS shipments are delayed more often than UPS shipments.  About 80% of our shipments get through as expected. Although these are illegal in MANY countries, some customs agencies let them through anyway.

Do you offer tracking?

Yes, both USPS and UPS offer tracking.  USPS tracking is quite limited.  After the parcel arrives at your country, your government's customs department takes possession of it.  USPS can't track it beyond this point.  After customs has  inspected, classified, and taxed it,  it is handed over to a local delivery service.  This agency will collect the import duty and arrange delivery.  You may be required to pick it up.  UPS offers better tracking because they handle the package from door to door, including collecting the import duty.

    The best there is!

    I'm speechless as how awesome this thing is. No detail is spared, and it is a real work of art, so treat it as such. In terms of accuracy it goes way beyond what any other company produced; it also has some serious weight to it. Thanks a bunch for the awesome piece.

    Han Shot first... and now so can I

    Posted by Carter Kingery on 23rd Jan 2021

    I can not speak more highly about Todd's Costumes and highly recommend them for any of their products. As for the product, this was my first purchase and the blaster is well worth the money for any Star Wars fan. The DL-44 has a great weight and feels so incredibly real (especially when you can cock the hammer back and pull the trigger to get that satisfying click). My only Gripe is that the scope does not work, but that is something that is fully disclosed on the product description. As for the service, Todd's Costumes went above and beyond. To be upfront it 3 months to get my product, but Todd's Costume's was transparent about the delays due to a manufacturing issue, and Covid-19 slow shipping. But not only were they upfront and honest, they also allowed me every chance to refund my pre-order, and to reward for keeping my preorder they upgraded me to the full wooden grips. As I said a the top they produced a fantastic realistic product, and they provide above and beyond service.

    Gift for a big Solo fan.

    Posted by Adam Acuna on 27th Oct 2020

    I bought this as a bachelor gift for my best friend, a big Han Solo fan, and he absolutely loves it. If you're looking for a quality, metal, replica with as much attention to detail as possible, and not some 3D printed hunk of plastic. I highly recommend this for any Solo fan.

    Nothing beats a good blaster at your side

    Posted by Thor K on 14th Aug 2020

    These guys aren't kidding-- this is the most accurate prop replica you'll find for the money. It's incredibly satisfying in-hand. I'd like to note that my blaster initially shipped with a production defect-- Todd and his staff communicated closely with me to resolve the issue and I commend the way they stand behind their work.

    Exceeded expectations

    Posted by Andre S on 28th Jul 2020

    Took a gamble and purchased this to complete my Han TFA costume. Very pleased with the build quality and attention to accuracy. It's a teensy bit on the heavy side (almost 2kg) but that actually helps it stay in the holster since they did away with the safety strap in the movie. Highly recommend this blaster to anyone looking for a movie-accurate display or an authentic costume experience.
