Just For Kicks: Slingshot Guy Makes A Rey Blaster Replica That Fires Glow Sticks

Joerg Sprave: Rey’s Blaster

Pew! Pew! Pew! The Slingshot Guy, or Joerg Sprave/Jörg Sprave of the Slingshot Channel, is back with another creation using his unparalleled knowledge on slingshots to actually create a replica of Rey’s Blaster. If you are a Star Wars fan, you would of course remember Rey, who is one of the main characters in the new Star Wars trilogy and is seen as the heir to Luke Skywalker.

What is nice with what Sprave created is that it shoots out “lasers” which are actually glow sticks that are propelled out of the replica NN-14 Blaster (the actual model name of the blaster) using rubber bands. So it should work better in the dark when a glow stick that shoots out of the blaster replica will look like an actual laser beam being fired off.

For Star Wars cosplayers, it is a cool contraption mimicking a laser blaster that shoots out laser.

Rey got to own the NN-14 Blaster when in the “Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens” Han Solo gave her the blaster to defend herself when they landed on the planet Takodana. She was able to use them against the stormtroopers of the First Order when they raided Maz Kanata’s castle though the blaster proved useless against Kylo Ren who just deflected the beams when she fired at him. The NN-14 remains to be Rey’s blaster in “Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi.”

If you like to own the NN-14 Blaster made by Joerg Sprave, tough luck, it’s not for sale. But if you want to make one for yourself then better watch the video carefully as he gives details on how he made it. You will need some patience in doing some woodwork, really good rubber bands, and glow sticks. We would recommend red glow sticks as the NN-14 fires red laser beams, not green.
