That dud looks pretty angry, Han Solo must have shot first and pissed him off! :D Or maybe it is because I am looking at Star Wars related artwork while playing the closing theme to Star Trek VI. Excellent artwork, I always liked the Star Wars blaster pistols, even though they resemble real firearms more than a laser. Nice work on the armor, it sure looks thick and bulky!

The use of parts from real-steel WW2 firearms like the Mauser Broomhandle pistol and StG 44 added a real flavor to the blasters, too. My other favorite SF movie ray-guns were the TOS era phasers, they had a surprisingly logical and futuristic design- with lots of details!! The Type-1 unit plugs into the pistol-shaped Type-2 chassis, the handle is a replaceable powerpack (which wasn't seen often...), there were dials for selecting power settings and beam width, and the phaser even incorporated a reflex aimsight. Compared to the later shaver-like phaser from TNG, which lacked any visible way to recharge the weapon or any means to aim it, it is far more convincing. This was no doubt due to Matt Jefferies' superb concept design. I liked the later TOS movie designs, too, which mostly play off of the original TOS phaser. Funny how a plastic prop can somehow become a facet of the 23rd century for us humans with our TV shows. :)

What I Love Best About This Picture Is 'The Armor. Rodians Are Typically Very Thin Species, I Suspect The Armor Is An Animatronic, Synthetic, Exoskeleton Type Of Armor For Industrial Usage. Thanks For Sharing.
