I was going through some of my extra loose figs and found some more questionable weapons. I know one is definitely repro as it fails all tests...

Bottom is Nikto staff repro:




Now these I'm wondering about. Lando Skiff staff. They both pass the float test and they sound similar in the drop test. I'm pretty sure the top one is good but not sure about the bottom one. I've got the same bottom one for my Weequay and the same top one for my Klaatu skirt. Are these just variants or is the bottom repro?

Cool, thanks. The details seem a little different (circles, sizes). I guess these are just variants?

Hi Bro

Check them against this page - http://www.imperialgunnery.com/thestaffsaxessection.htm

Regarding the Nikto Staff the bottom one in your picture looks like the V1 Painted Repro as it lacks most of the detail points.

If it sinks in water then its also painted if you get a coin you will be able to scratch the paint off.

Skiff Guard Battle Staff REPRO V1

Painted REPRO, Mass Produced





Just info there is also a much better quality Repro which i have pictured below -

Skiff Guard Battle Staff REPRO V2


Cast in Grey Plastic (Not Painted)





The Lando Skiff Staffs looks ok to me.

Here is a cleaned up version of your picture next to the V1 Repro Picture -

Nice info. Thanks for the help. I actually scratched the plastic (you can see the score mark if you look carefully) and it actually just scraped off more plastic. So it's definitely not painted. After I knew it was a repro I scratched the hell of it with a knife just to see if it is all plastic and it sure enough it is. So I guess they made a V1 in cast plastic? Either way, the thing is in the garbage now.

Interesting if you can get it out the garbage bro ill take it off your hands so i can check it out. Let me know if you still have it and ill be happy to cover postage. It would be worth comparing it to other examples i have.

Yeah, I've still got it. It was in a pile of junk mail I threw in the trash (don't worry - it's clean). It's definitely cast plastic and sinks like a rock. I'd be happy to send it to you.

Once i get it in hand i'll do some tests, cross reference it against the other REPRO's and take some High Resolution pictures of it to ad to this thread.
