Well, well, http://www.batsonstoys.com strikes again..
He's based in Redditch couple of miles from me, he had a small warehouse on the far side of Redditch in the industrial estate area. But I doubt if hes still there, also his website looks a little stagnated of recent. Think he might have gone completely to eBay now, like the way of most small internet toy stores these days. Theres some contact details on this website.

P.S. He also sells whats left of DTSabers.com. Best repro 'telescoping sabers' around. Original guy 'ReValveiT' packed it in couple of years ago. He was getting too much stick from purists (Actually all they wanted him to do was put his 'name brand' on the hilt, so they don't get abused for the real thing)
Now Batson bought the stock and maybe the moulds, I think. I don't condone distribution of fairly common repro items, it causes collectors alot of pain.
But I do own a set (Blue,Red & Yellow) DTsabers for 'display purposes only' from ReValveiT. The real things? ive no real hope of owning.

But this Batson guy has started doing Speeder bike repro parts? e.g. Flaps, Underside guns and Handle bars. Now thats something you don't need out in the world. Theres still quite enough real ones to go around for everybody. In my opinion. :x

wow this is an old post but im gunna ask anyways...


i just got a rooky vader and i think the saber might be one of these repros

its made of orange plastic and there is a slight ridge both sides where you can see the mold didnt quite match up properly.

ive looked at jawas armoury and am still not 100% if this is real or a ReValveiT repro

i did the water test and this one sinks....


any ideas??
