I don't plan on making mine look like GB1/2 but I know a lot of others are. I didn't get a Matty wand and they are upwards of £700-1000 now on the second hand market.

The main changes with the Afterlife wand. compared to the original films are as follows):
  • Bent finger grip
  • Shotgun front grip
  • A visible cable running from gun box to under grip
  • Some bad welding
  • Lots of scuffs and scratches
  • Bubbling rust under paint
  • Olive drab wrap on rear grip
  • Dixie cup bracket instead of vhook
These are all accurate to the prop used in the film as the toy manufacturer did a 3d scan to base it from.

Yeah, mine did the same thing. They had a countdown yesterday as to how many they still had in stock, now they are waiting for stock? What a scam. I canceled my order on Hasbro Pulse because Game Stop said they had them in stock. NEVER AGAIN, I'm done with Game Stop.

Great video, had to look up the meaning of "Naff" as you've used it a few times here lately. I already figured it wasn't good, and now I have confirmed that. :)

It's killing me that all you folks across the pond have already received theirs, while ours here in the U.S. seem to have been delayed. :(

Apologies for the British colloquialisms lol. You are correct, both “naff” and “pap” are not so good haha.

I’ll be attaching this wand to it so might as well make it as accurate as possible
Most people use 3/4" Split wire loom: Link.

Edit: Whoops, suggested 1/4" when it should've been 3/4".

Same here! Game Stop claimed they had them in stock when I called them on Aug. 31st.
So I ordered one from there hoping it would ship out in a few days.
Then I cancelled my Hasbro pre-order.
THEN I go on my Game Stop order page and it says "Awaiting Product Availability".

So I called Game Stop again to ask what the heck does that mean? Matt, the guy I spoke to says they are out of stock because of all the pre-orders and they are awaiting more to be restocked in a few weeks.
If you claim you have an item in stock then I expect it to be in stock. WTH??

So I had to cancel that one and then found one ready to ship on eBay of all places. It will be here by Tuesday, Sept. 8th according to the USPS tracking info. SCREW YOU GAME STOP!! WHAT A SCAM!! NEVER AGAIN!!

It's possible that at the time they did have the stock, but it was whittled away by new customers seeing the Thrower and deciding to buy it, and dissatisfied customers of Hasbro Pulse switching their orders to Gamestop. :(

Oh i know. But Anovos already had a sloppy track record for props. So I wasn't going anywhere near that.

Mine is arriving tomorrow between 9:06 and 13:06, which is paradoxically both alarmingly specific and incredibly vague.

Now, them saying its shipped and it actually making it's way to UPS is, another story.

Strange these were never sold by Amazon.
My order on Game Stop said the same thing the day after I placed my order.
Then the following day "just kidding'. Awaiting shipment. I would not count on it taking 4 days to process your order.
I found one on ebay and it will be here by Sept. 9th. SCREW GAME STOP!!

While the shipping timeline is disappointing, this is definitely not a limited run like the MattyCollector stuff. I don’t miss the order stress of those days at all!
When they were sold out you were out of luck.

I felt bad for those people who got defective products and Matty only had a handful available for replacement! What a mess.

*sigh* You're right. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad having 2, just in case.
