PostSubject: ID Weapons fake or not fake ?   Thu Mar 10, 2011 11:18 am

Hi I am new here, I have those 2 weapons and I can't find out if they are Repro or Original weapons ?

Can any of you ID the Weapons as fake or repro ?

I have tried to make the water test an all my other fake stormtrooper blasters sunk to the bottom and all the original was on the surface. But this stormtrooper blaster
did also go to the surface and it looks like the repro variant 4 http://www.imperialgunnery.com/imperialblasters.htm

About the Jawa blaster it could be the original variant 2 Solid Dark Blue, no raised Bump but I am not sure. All my fake Jawa blasters sunk to the bottom and all the original was on the surface. But this one did also go to the surface http://www.imperialgunnery.com/jawablaster.htm

I would agree with your findings, the Jawa weapon looks original, the Stormtrooper weapon looks fake.
No idea if the water test is conclusive, i guess that can vary depending on the materials used when they were made.

No worries, you can wait and see if a being with stereoscopic vision concludes differently Smile

The Jawa blaster looks good to me. I have one like that and it checked out.

The Imperial Blaster looks a bit off but I'm not 100% sure. Did you try the drop test?

Jawa weapon ok imo.
Imperial Blaster is repro V4 as suggested.

Yes it did not sunk and all other repro imperial blaster that I have has always sunk to the bottom, so I got confused.
