The final piece in the jigsaw puzzle - help needed to verify pop-up lightsaber

Postby TheJabbaWookie » Thu Aug 03, 2017 1:07 pm

Well after 20 years of collecting on and off I think I have finally gone and done it - completed the line.

The final piece in the jigsaw puzzle was completed last week when I got my hands on my very own R2D2 pop up lightsaber. Well chuffed if it's totally 100% bonified real.

It turned up in the post today and looks the genuine article to me having compared it to photos on TIG. But having never owned one, seen one or felt one before I admit to having no real experience with this one.

So I wondered if there were any experts out there who could confirm it's authenticity from the photos I'm posting. I was thinking of sending it off to UKG but I don't think it'll make the grade and I don't want it graded anyway, just verified.

So any help would be massively appreciated. It's be great to have finally done it.

Cheers in anticipation
Jay

Thanks guys. It's all looking encouraging. Rest easy - now I've got to build me a cabinet, there's a few figures that are in need of an upgrade, and recently I've been getting into the Spanish line. My feet won't be up for long! :lol:

To reassure even further, if that is a fake we're all in trouble! That looks spot on to me.
