But who actually knows that for a fact though??, to me if there are many dozens out there still sealed with dark blue blasters then there were most likely many thousands more that were opened. It's possible the workers at the Palitoy factory ran out of solid black blasters one day and intentionally grabbed some dark blue ones to pack them for several hours or a couple of days, even that would be intentional so in my mind that's what officially came with that figure for a short while. If there was like 5 or less examples of dark blue blasters in bubbles then maybe that could be passed off as an anomaly.
And the fact that nearly all of these loose figures I see on ebay that people have had for many years or from their childhoods still with a dark blue blaster tells me there was a huge run of these.
This is the reason why I don't chase after a solid black blaster for my Luke, I do believe TIG can be wrong about certain things.
I completely agree with this. My Trilogo Luke stormtrooper has a dark blue blaster as have many others I have seen over the years (many more than black on trilogo in fact).
