Should imperial blasters bend?

Postby captainhancock » Sat Nov 23, 2013 4:56 pm

Hi all, hope this is the right section to post this.

I just got an imperial blaster (storm trooper) from ebay. I'm new to collecting so I'm not sure if it's real. My question is should imperial blasters bend?

The one I bought has very little "give" in the plastic. It's pretty rigid.

Cheers.

Cheers mate. I've added the site to my favourites. I think the blasters real. It floats and looks right. Theres no info I can see regarding material properties such as it ability on bend or not.

There's so many variations it seems overwhelming at first!

I don't get how money changes hands here. I do want to buy from collectors rather than eBay. The stuff I've seen on here it just so much better. Do you just browse the for sale section?

Hi mate. Yes just browse the FS section. If your interested in anything send the seller a PM (Private Message) by clicking the pm button.

Virtually everybody if not all use paypal as payment. If you stick to buying from the veteran members and don't jump on any new members who have no rep you should be fine.

If you are ever unsure of a rep of a seller check their feedback in the feedback section :)

Cheers mate, that's really helpful advice. That's for taking the time to answer.
