Ok from the same Dutch seller of the repro Yoda snake & lots more repro crap is:



The reproduction is on the left. Slight colour difference to the skulls, mold seam is not perfect & it FLOATS- just like the repro Yoda snake. So most real weapons float BUT real vintage snakes & Amanaman staffs sink.(there are other real accessories that sink) I hate to say it but these new reproductions are very well made Twisted Evil

Man these scammer's are realy getting good at their craft.

Great work James,man those staff's look so similar,i fear the vintage era is going to be taken over realy bad in 5 year's. Fakes will look, feal,weigh, and everything else the same before we know it.

What type of people do this shit.money hungry asses or just pathedic ahole's that are miserable.or both?

Your second picture was quite good AJ!

Its just going to be easy for me to take the pictures under the same conditions as the others tbh the seller lists on different countries on ebay so i bough the Anamanaman Staff for 10 Euros which worked out at just over 8GBP so not to bad!

I also thought it would be good to take a group shot of them all together for the new guide Smile

Good description btw - The reproduction is on the left. Slight colour difference to the skulls, mold seam is not perfect & it FLOATS- just like the repro Yoda snake. So most real weapons float BUT real vintage snakes & Amanaman staffs sink.(there are other real accessories that sink) I hate to say it but these new reproductions are very well made Twisted Evil

Its pretty shocking how close these are to the Originals!

AJ Can you do a float test on your original Madine Staffs and Pruneface Rifles buddy?

Cheers Jay

3 floating Madine staffs & 3 floating Pruneface rifles.

I think these are both V1 but the one on the left is shorter & slightly thinner scratch

Great AJ Hmm so the Madine Staff and Pruneface Rifle Originals Float scratch

Lets hope when the REPRO's of these weapons arrive at my house and i can take high res pictures we can find some physical factors to tell them apart!

Angry SW

It seems quite a few people are starting to sell the new REPRO's now Sad

"It even floats" obviously the idiot doesnt realise that the originals actually sink thank god at least that can tell them apart!

True on that AJ, but something altogether instead. I'll keep the what for now, but most are probally thinking the same thing. And that will be bad all around.
