PRHI 3D Printed Reproduction Mini Blockade Runner for use with Kenner Star Wars diecast Star Destroyer
Our own Prometheum5 has a new 3D printed aftermarket part for use with your Star Wars toys available on Shapeways. Most people today only remember the venerable 3 3/4″ Star Wars action figure and vehicle line from Kenner, but one of their cooler non-figure toys was the diecast Star Destroyer. The seven inch long hunk of Imperial might featured an opening hangar for storing an itty bitty <1″ long Tantine IV Rebel Blockade Runner miniature. The little Correlian Corvette is often missing, robbing the awesome Star Destroyer of a great play feature. Thanks to 3D printing, and a vintage sample for reference provided by a fellow collector, Prometheus Rising Heavy Industries is pleased to announce a reproduction ship available through Shapeways. The mini ship is also avvailable with a hole in the mounting fin for all your creative projects, including jewelery and keychains. A 2x scaled version of the sculpt without the fin is available for some pocket-sized SW ship fun!
Head on over to the Prometheus Rising Heavy Industries Shapeways Store to purchase your reproduction Blockade Runners today!
