jedi training ball fake or real ?

Postby Pomse2001 » Sun Feb 04, 2018 4:30 pm

Found this jedi training ball in a moving box with a falcon that I had forgot all about :roll:

I bought it a few years ago but I am confused about if the ball is real or fake :?

I believe I'm right in saying there is more than one mould for the training ball, however yours looks the same as my sealed one, so I am happy to say yours looks real. Here are some photos of mine to help you :-)
