PostSubject: Are these real?   Fri Sep 30, 2011 4:33 pm

Greetings,

I have just started collecting vintage Star Wars toys this summer. I only have a small amount of weapons. Yesterday I received a Blue Snaggletooth and he has a blaster but I find it looks to new to be original. Now it makes me unsure about all my weapons. Any help in deciphering which are real and which are repros would be awesome!

First off, welcome . Hope you like it around here.

All the weapons look good to me, but I'll let the other guys chime in on the sabers. Theres too many good fakes out there on those, sop we'll see what the rest say on those. But to me they look fine.

If theres anyway you can take some shots outside with natural daylight on them, that will bring out more detail on them.

Well mate, why do you not use the guide on the forum ? http://www.imperialgunnery.com/

picture 1,2, 4 and 5 I have never heard or seen as repro so I am 100% sure it is original.

The lightsabers are harder to spot.

The weapons on the last 2 pictures, drop them in a glass of water and if they goes to the bottom they are for sure repro. If they go the surface there is a very big chance they are original.

The spears if they look painted they are repro if not there is a good chance they are original.

About the axes place them in water if they sink they should be original unless they are maid of metal. If they go to the surface they are repro.

Picture 7 and 8 if they are painted they are repro, originals goes to the surface. I don't no about if the repro sinks.

Picture 6 if it is metal it is repro and, but there is also plastic repro versions of this weapon.

But maybe the guide can help more.

Thanks for the quick replies and the great tips! According to the water test my Jawa Blaster is the only fake.

No problem.

I have never seen an original Jawa blaster going to the bottom, so I would say it is 99% repro.

But try if you can find the jawa blaster on the link to the weapon guide, maybe that can tell you 100% what kind of blaster you have there.
