Help ... fake or real leia blaster

Postby StarWarsMark77 » Mon Mar 13, 2017 7:48 pm

It looks good to me. It floats, and refloats when submerged in water. Magazine looks good. I bought it in 2006.

But my eyes are not the best and i cant make out a blue tinge that it is supposed to have.

Opinions please or advice.

Is that a blue tinge?

My eyes are poor to say the least

There is some damage on it that confuse me but I have never heard about there was repro princess blasters in 2006 that floats, so I guess your is a damaged original if you bought it in 2006 or else it is a repro that I have never seen or heard about.

I would keep it if I was you :wink:

I agree with V3, but the colours are a massive strain on the eyes to determine exactly which colour it is under different lighting.
Regardless, it looks the genuine article.

Looks fine. Shining a light through it normally works best for me.
This 'lower end' collector has 2 VCJs, 2 mint yaks (one graded) and one near mint blue snag. Not bad for a 'lower end' collector! lol
