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.
