Hi does any of those 3 lightsabers look original ?

They all floated in water and they do not look painted.

Hi, to the eye these look good but be aware Revalveit made some repros that were CAST in blue plastic and FLOATED - as Uli said in a similar thread some of these sabers float and some sink.
You can make a small scratch to be sure if it's painted or not.

How can I then see what is repro and what is original if they are maid of the same plastic colour ?

yep, it's difficult. Usually the originals are much more flexible and the repros have less flexibility:

Damn, it's difficult to ID the lightsabers even with the help from the guide.

you can also look for any markings or dots some not all vintage ones either had letters or dots on them near the piece you push on.
