Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Mandalorian Amban Blaster Replica!

Adam embarks on his first full prop replica project using his shop’s new Form 3L 3D printer: a replica of the Amban “tuning fork” blaster as seen in The Mandalorian! It’s an extensive build that’s also mixed-material, combining 3D printed resin parts with carved wood and machined components as well, giving it a veracity not only in form but also weight and feel–as if it lives in the Star Wars universe. It’s an essential prop for Adam’s Mandalorian cosplay, and stay tuned for the paint application in the next build!
