Re: Which Imperial Blaster is this ?

It is a V2 (rough texture which I suspect due to the increased surface area did not release from the mould well hence the addition of the ejector pin mark, can be found without EPM)

Re: New wave of Reproduction Weapons - **Share them here**

No original grey bespin blaster comes in that mould. The original with the same trigger guard has a fatter handle. I have tried to keep up to date acquiring reproductions as they appear, site updates take a bit longer. http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t9253-the-year-of-the-near-perfect-fakes-2017...

Re: Do all 12 Back Chewie's have a Green Bowcaster?

Without 100% confirmation, Taiwan figures usually have 'unique' weapons. So we could 'assume' not all 12 back Chewbacca's have a green bowcaster because Taiwan Chewbacca would buck any trend. I am working on more information.

Re: Top Loader Fix

If you get rid of the outside trim, it might fit into a case. That's what I was thinking of looking at although there's not much material to play with as the front and back of the Top Loader may well separate if I start cutting into the edge of it. I'll take a look though but they will display fine...
