Star-Lord’s Gun Nerf Mod

Star-Lord guns 1

The release of James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy in theaters brought a new wave of merchandise into toy stores, including a Nerf style replica of Star-Lord’s gun. On its own, it’s bright orange and doesn’t look much like what you see in the film, but the gun provides a decent base to build from. Replica Props Forum user DarkJedi1500 liked the details on the handle but made a new sculpt from the toy. The picture above shows off the before and after.

He cut out the handle and crafted different barrels with foam and MDF. He sculpted the ends from Apoxie Sculpt and sanded and carved everything smooth. Then, casting:

I created a two part mold with rebound 40 (one half is dyed so I could see the seam when seperating the layers. The first casting was Smooth Cast 320. I am currently tying to lighten the blaster by casting it with foam inside.

He ended up recasting the guns with foam inside to make them lighter. He painted them with Rustoleum and Krylon spray paints and added the heat damage/weathering using an airbrush with purple and blue paint.
