PostSubject: JAWA BLASTER ORIGINAL OR FAKE?   Fri Aug 19, 2011 6:53 am

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to look at this post. I recently purchased this Jawa Blaster (sold as an original) from ebay.

It sinks, & according to Sith net http://www.loresdelsith.net/rincon/armeria/index2.htm if it has the line running all the way along the reverse it is quite probably a repro. I also notice that on the orginal, there is a tiny divot/hole immediately after the raised bump, which is missing here.

Please could a 'very kind' soul verify if this is real or not?

As there are no high res scans of the reverse side of these blasters on here, I thought I would make one, there is also no clarification on wether these items float or not.

Many thanks

I have maybe 10 Jawa Blasters and they all goes to the surface.

So I think it is repro, but I am no expert.

Maybe the guide can help http://www.imperialgunnery.com/jawablaster.htm

I'll go repro as well. The line is a dead giveaway and when mixed with the sinking, it sort of seals the deal.

Thank you very much for your replies. You've confirmed my suspicions!

This item was purchased from Ghandi-2007/Yesterdays YubNub shop.

UPDATE- I emailed him & he refunded me straight away, but, made up a lame excuse about originals being mixed up with repro's.

Why do they even bother wasting my time & theirs with this crap!!!!!!!!!
