The mould was only used in the late 80s and came with the resident AT-AT Driver “Sürücü” and Tie Fighter Pilot “Savaş Pilotu”. In time they saved making the thin parts (strap and gun butt). These look like broken, but were produced and released like this, which can be seen on many MOCs. The following colours are known:

  • black (AT-AT Driver)

  • grey metallic (Tie Fighter Pilot)

Reproductions

R1:

The R1 is a direct reacst from the M1 UNITOY rifle. The surface differs though compared to any original. Many have irregularities like air bubbles from the casting process. They are bendy to a certain point but then snap easily.  They don’t swim when submerged in water and therefore are an easy tell.

The following colours are known:

  •  greyish-black
