figures and weapons i just found help needed please

Postby yoda » Sat May 14, 2016 3:55 pm

Hi guys I have just found a box of figures with weapons I didn't even know I had :)
I have bought alot of vintage starwars over the years and stored them safely away because I was building a house. My plan was to try and build a collection of mint figures and ships. I have now started going through some of the boxes and discovered these last nite. I don't even remember buying them.
I need help with the weapons to find out if they are repro or not. I have put them in water and they are floating? I have never done this method before.
I have also found a yoda and luke stormie figure which I always wanted :) is his blaster in the pile? Also is there any other figures in the pile that may be of interest I am not an expert on these figures or weapons. And I have no idea what that grey ball is for if anyone could tell me thanks.

I have also now found another blue sabre which isn't in pictures.

Well that's not good! actually when you say that you can see small bits of black. What about the rest any way of knowing?these are all floating. Does anything else look suspect and how can I be sure? I have no experience with repro weapons.

Thanks :D it was a great feeling felt like I found them and was seeing them for the first time. I honestly can't remember buying them. I also opened a box which has a lose complete Falcon and a AT-AT in bubble wrap. It feels like Xmas in the 80s every time I go near them boxes :lol: when I get more time I will get more figures and weapons up for checking. I will over time sell on here what I don't need.

Thanks mate for that. These weapons are like a minefield when your not familiar with them :)

Wow, I wish I could uncover boxes of vintage I forgot I had! :shock:

I agree the two green sabers are repros. The rest, can't tell. Best to put every one in a pic like that unidentified ball thing. Up close, it'll be easier to help you.

Check that Luke Stormie helmet too - those were also reproduced at one point. A picture of the inside of the helmet and one of the face is best for that.

Awesome find regardless of any possible repros. ;)

I've paid my dues

I've done my sentence
But committed no crime.
And bad mistakes ‒
I've made a few.
I've had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I've come through.

Ok thanks lan
I know it's great opening these boxes now :D. I think with working at the house and a few other things around that time going on. I have totally forgotten what I have bought. I do remember buying a few Falcons and ewok villages and other play sets and ships. There are also alot more figures with weapons. This whole thing has got me curious now to find out exactly what I do have.
I will try to get a few close up pictures put up later. I have a little guy here wants to go to bed soon :)
That little grey ball is puzzling I am starting to think if it hasn't been identified already it's possibly not starwars related :?

Talk about that Christmas morning feeling :D :D :D :D :D
Spotted a Forest Ranger front cannon in the pile - if it's not needed I know a man that will buy it from you :D

Great find - don't stop though - keep looking 8)

Ok no prob mate if I don't need it you can have it :D . The only thing is its gonna that time going through all these bits. I know I have also bought mini rigs and can't remember if most are complete or not so I might need it. But if not sure you can have first shout :D
I will hopefully get more pictures up tonight or tomorrow.
I have a Samsung ph but don't know how to get pictures from photobucket to forum using ph yet. I have to keep using the laptop at home. If I could master how to use ph :? I could get these more close up pictures of the weapons and helmet up quicker.
