Default Stapleton Productions TNG Dustbuster Phaser Quick Look

Stapleton Productions sells prop kits primarily on eBay - his ID there is killmenow0. He specializes in Next Gen and beyond era phasers and tricorders but offers a few other items like STIII - V communicator bodies and replacement handles for the Wand Company TOS Phaser II.

I recently had the opportunity to pick up one of his Dustbuster phaser kits and here it is.

Absolutely no cleanup of any kind has been done to the parts. No flash trimmed off, no shaping, nothing. These are exactly as-received.


Top view:







Bottoms:





Handle snapped in:





The rubber parts - grip and button pad.

A word about these - they aren't cast in black resin. They're actually a rubbery material. The grip comes with two bullet catches already installed:






Snapped together:




Put simply, yet another fantastic item from Myron Stapleton.

The bullets catches are molded in place?
Awesome kit engineering! And I always liked the DustBuster--
