One of my favorite scenes from Return Of The Jedi happens when Leia enters Jabba’s Palace disguised as a bounty hunter looking to claim the reward for Chewbacca. She demands more payment for the Wookie and uses a thermal detonator as a way to get what she wants.
It’s a great scene and it introduces us to one of the most iconic and powerful weapons in Star Wars…the thermal detonator. This little spherical device looks innocent enough but it packs a punch and has been favored by the discerning bounty hunter because of this.
Now if you are an aspiring bounty hunter and in need of your own thermal detonator you are in luck because Odin of Odin Makes shows you the parts, materials and techniques needed to create your own. With your arsenal of thermal detonators you’ll be able to take on the worst scum the galaxy has to offer or at the very least, create a kick ass cosplay with some stunning props.
