Happy New year. New post on www.retrotoyinfo.co.uk

Hi All

Happy new year. I created a post today on the Star Wars 3-Position Laser Rifle and the ESB Electronic Laser Rifle.

The Star Wars toy guns created by Kenner were quite limited but have remained very popular among collectors. The 3-Position Rifle made it to ESB packaging, the ESB Electronic Laser Rifle made it to ROTJ packaging. The Laser Pistol was made for all three films.

I could read stuff like this all day :D
You refer to the 1981 version being more screen accurate - it's actually a good deal less accurate once they removed the 3 position stock as the original props were sterling sub machine guns or casts of them.
Great read and loved the pictures

Thanks for letting me know. I have updated the post with the information and made some improvements, adding some more pictures.

Nice site, should be posted in the dedicated links section - viewforum.php?f=9
"U grade for sale"
Translation: If it was legal my grandmother would be living on dialysis so that I could harvest and sell her kidneys.
