Adam Savage collects props of all kinds, even ones made from LEGO. He just added another LEGO weapon to his collection: Han Solo’s blaster. He got a kit from Demonhunter Bricks and then followed the instructions to create the prop. So many fans dress up as LEGO minifig version of characters, that it could make a fun addition to carry around (as long as all the bricks are securely glued together). But of course, a LEGO blaster is an excellent display piece.
