Hi, I was going through my bespin blasters and found this one. Guessing its a repro but just wanted to make sure. Thanks

It's hard to tell from the pics, but it looks to have some flashing around the edge. This isn't necessarily an indication of being a repro. Some originals can have this. Does it float?

Hi mate, yes it does float, taken some more imagers with a better cam hope it helps. Compared to other blasters seems thicker and fatter.

I would say it's genuine, it doesn't have the raised bar like most repros do, what made you think it could be repro out of interest ?

V2 Bespin Blaster from the TIG website, just has a bit more flashing than other examples. There’s no known repros on the market that mimic the Bespin blaster that well IMO.
