This LEGO blaster is fully functional so Han Solo can still shoot first

lego blaster

(From Nerdist) Obi-Wan Kenobi called a lightsaber an elegant weapon, but we think he needs to hand that description over to this electronic LEGO DL-44.

Builder Baron von Brunk has been tinkering with the full-size LEGO replica of Han Solo’s blaster from Star Wars since spring of this year.

Von Brunk used over 400 bricks in the project.

He used an Arduino board to make a LED blink and play a sound clip of the blaster firing (specifically the audio from the Mos Eisley Cantina scene in Episode IV) whenever the trigger is pulled.

The coolest part about this LEGO DL-44 blaster is that you can make your own.

Baron von Brunk has shared a complete step-by-step tutorial on crafting the weapon over at Instructables.
