Mav2D2 is the NERF Gun You Were Looking for

by Lambert Varias

Can’t. Unsee. NERF enthusiast/Jedi paint modder/girly gamer Girly Gamer has ensured that whenever I look at a gun with a cylindrical chamber, I’ll see Artoo. Using her DIY and “beginner” painting skills, she turned a stock NERF Maverick into a Star Wars-themed blaster that Han Solo would be proud to pack.

For comparison’s sake, here’s a shot of the original, garishly-colored Maverick:

Girly Gamer did a fair bit of sanding, hacksawing, painting and brushing to mod the gun. She even improvised to create some of Artoo’s details, like the glass beads for his projector lenses and the wires on his legs. Here’s another look at the Mav2D2:

Check out Girly Gamer’s website for a “run through of all the faffing involved in the NERF mod.” Heh. She said faffing. Sorry. You can also check out a gallery of her NERF mods on her deviantART page. I hope someone gives her a decent digital camera so we can better admire her work.
