The ones supposed to be making them is BrickArms. He was talking about the plasma pistols that BA is planning to put out in the summer but BF already did. Sorry, but from the looks, I personally like the looks of the BA ones better. I like that the handle is separate from the body of the gun.
I can appreciate the fact that people expect exact miniature replicas of popular items but RedBean and I decided we weren't going to do that. We enjoy putting our own spin on things, not to mention it keeps us out of trouble. The Plasma Blaster is our best seller from our latest release and is coming up second best overall.
The other thing we won't do is release drawings of our ideas months ahead of time in an attempt to lay claim to something we may not get around to producing for months. At the time we locked in the Blaster to Mold 10 there was nothing comparable being planned by other vendors.
