Advice on weapons

Postby Michael Sith » Sun Sep 24, 2017 4:46 pm

I need to check these, I'm pretty certain Repro but would like opinion just to be sure

Pop up saber

To my eyes def repro as it is in a repro card as well and wrong Saber to boot anyway

Yes, repro popup saber - not original at all. After a while you get an eye for it - for me it's the colour of the green, too dark.

Needless to say, Luke Jedi did not come with this accessory, but a different green saber.

Imperial blaster looks repro to me Mike. Can't see Jawa one properly but prob also fake if in a recard.

Looks like you have a v1 Bib Fortuna Staff if you were cross referencing against TIG.

Can not tell for certain from the pics regarding the imperial blaster or Jawa Blaster, though they look too shiny and smooth to be the real thing - would need clearer shots but tend to agree that it's unlikely to be an original if it's been recarded.

Perhaps aussiejames can shed more light.

Jawa barrel groove is too wide and rear line groove should not go all the way to the back, Imperial blaster is a dud as well

Pop up saber looks fake to me.

jawa, stormie blasters is hard for me to see.

I would have said bib fortuna looks real if it does not sink. But with all this new repro stuff then I am not sure about so much anymore.
Does any of you know if the new repro bib fortuna staffs floats ?

I'd never noticed that before. That's a good heads up. :D
