So, I was at a thrift store earlier. I was looking around, saw the usual worthless shit like Reactors, but I saw an object laying on the ground. I picked it up in curiousity, and I was like "Woah, is this one of those Van Helsing things?". The sticker on the top confirmed my thoughts.

I found the sticker humorous.

Behind view. I don't think rearloading would be very difficult.

DEMONSTRATION VIDEO


The only other place on the internet I have seen pictures and/or documentation on this other than the topic here from several years ago.

The video should cover most questions. The turret rotates when you prime the blaster. I know I should have more info, but I can't think of any more to add for now.

Internal pictures will wait. I have no clue whether, I'm going to mod it, have someone else mod it for me, or just sell it. We'll see.

Wow, this looks interesting. Unfortunately, movie guns usually aren't too easy to acquire well after the movie is out..

It definitely had a stock at one point, if you were still wondering. I think it looks better without it though.

Are the ridge things on top sights or ammo holders?

It does look cool. How akward is it to prime? It looks a bit annoying.
It would be better if it had a bigger plunger tube.

Blue: They are sights. It's similar to the LOTR Crossbow in that way as well.

JATDO: It is kind of awkward to prime and the handle is small and uncomfortable. These things can be delt with, though.

Look at its size, and consider its made of plastic. And its not sold in stores, and is a collectors item.
