Thanks for the heads up!

From what I've learned from this forum, the palace blaster is an easy spot because of missing details.

But that light saber would probably fool me from the photo!

Best,
Erich

If you look at the bit between the handle and blade, on the repo's it has two round edges and on the originals it's squared off on the blade side Cool I'm by no means an expert mate but that stuck in my head whilst checking mine out. Scott

Whats worse is its different buyers for each item that have left positive feedback.

I had emailed the seller to say they work fake but they chose to ignore my message.

I just sent the buyers a message with links to the main site and this thread so we have done all we can.

Yeah he got back to be and thanked us for the heads up and said that buying on ebay can be a nightmare. I sent him an invite to the forum and said if he joins up and ever has any questions we are always happy to help out Smile
