That blaster looks like Scards got ahold of it first for a repro meltdown. I'll look over the Madine staffs later and see if I can spot anything since I got one in now, Jay.

Just checked the Madine staff and I'd have to say the only thing I could see was the detail on the top part is slightly different. Other than that, I couldn't see much different in them.

Besides the poor mold pore on the Scout blaster, I couldn't see much on it. I'll let the Scout collectors have that one.

Bib's staff:
On the two I got theres no mold circle on either one of them.

Plus not sure on all varients, but the two I have have inner circles on the top part of the staff

The ball in the center is more lined up evenlly when looking at it from the side, instead of one side higher/lower than the other and it doesn't have that welded look like the repro does.


Ledy Emperor staff:

The only thing I see is that it doesn't have the "L" on it. I don't have one to compare the rest of it to.

Here are the pictures of the NEW REPRO Tusken Raider Gaderffii Stick (V2)

I have taken multiple pictures so people can easily spot the differences and have added this to the main TIG Site - Note this REPRO also sinks in water.

Can anyone confirm if the Original
Tusken Raider Gaderffii Stick Floats or Sinks?

I have just added the Second version of a REPRO Uganuaght Bag to the site this V2 REPRO sinks where the V1 REPRO Floats!

I cant believe there are 2 seperate repro's for this accessory!


Apparently it was one of those accessories that tended to get lost so a quite a few sellers on ebay are complete the figure with a REPRO Ug Bag but not noting that the accessory is repro in the listings as a lot of people dont think there are REPRO's for this accessory therefore dont bother to check.

Nice one Lee Smile

What might be a good idea is to comply a list of All Original Weapons and Accessories stating if they float or sink. I could then add those details to the main site.

I think this important now because in some cases the Original Floats and the REPRO Sinks yet for other weapons the reverse is true i.e Original Sinks - REPRO Floats.

Unfortunately i dont own all the weapons loose to do this Sad

I can actually help out big time here Jay.

I have just put all my loose figs in clamshell cases so i have all my weapons
together. We're talking hundreds here.

I'm sure i have lots of variants not even on the main tig weapons guide.

Now i have more time after wedding etc. i am happy to help out here.

Drop me a pm with what you would like Cool

Thats awesome news Lee i have been adding lots of new content to the site but as you know there is far more we can add! I want to focus 100% on the main site to reference everything we possibly can REPRO's and Originals!!

Heres what im looking for -

A Float - Sink Report on ALL the Original Weapons / Accessories.

If you have any Original Weapon Variants that are not currently on the site at - www.imperialgunnery.com then if you could email some macro close ups and any description notes needed to jay@imperialgunneryforum.com that would be awesome and ill get to work adding them to the site Smile

Im also working through a lot of new REPRO's myself and adding them as seen in this thread.

Also we need to think about the capes and cloaks section as well as that seriously needs updating as you'll know taking pictures of capes is not easy but it can be done Smile but i think we should leave this section until last and then focus on it together.

Cheers Jay

Nice one Lee- so now that you have clamshells does that mean you have all your figures organised (if so I'm jealous)
top one is a repro(that sinks)
the other real 5 float

note the bottom gaffi is a 'variant' maybe scratch

Just to note as well im also considering doing a page for the droid + Ewok weapons but the only way i could do this is if someone could provide all pictures of all the ORIGINAL Driod . Ewok Weapons / Accessories.

If this page gets off the ground and all the originals are documented then i will purchase all the REPRO Weapons for the Droid and Ewok Line and add them as well.

Jay

- A not on the Madine REPRO Staff so far i can tell it apart from Original pictures that have been sent so i have purchase some Original Madine Staffs and will carry out comparisions once they arrive Smile

Looks like it could be AJ !

Can you try and get some macro shots of that weapon on its own?

Dont worry about colour so much just try and get the image in focus. Make sure you macro setting is turned on and you hold the button half way until the display goes green and in focus before pushing it down fully to take the shot.

Getting decent pictures is mainly about technique and trial and error until you work out the best way to use you camera! - I have had to take my pictures over the last month on an old beat up dirt cheap 5 megapixel camera!! -

Yet with practise i can still get detailed shots like the one below Smile

You're drunk if you think I can take a decent picture tongue Razz



the 'disc' on the end is slightly larger in diameter, the base of the conical point is not radiused like the others.

Lol AJ you must be permenantly drunk bro!

I'd need the pics via email i.e full size uploading them to the forum reduces the size and makes them much harder to edit in photoshop and similar etc.

What model of camera have you got maybe i can help you with your settings?
