PostSubject: More reproduction parts   Sun May 06, 2012 11:43 pm

Repro is marked with a '7' (real ones can have this number as well) & they sink- when submerged (ie. they can just float, real ones float no matter what)


repro is marked 637017 with a '2' sinks like a real one but is slightly more flexible

repro flaps float (real ones sink) these repros are marked 663030 'G' & 663013 'D' (again real ones can have these markings)

these handles float like real ones. Are marked 663019 'C' & 663020 "H'

I hope the 'look and feel' of these repro parts is much different compared to their originals.

What's next, complete repro vehicles?

Don't we all. Unfotunately it means buying the damned things to find out. I see from their feedback a number of Speeder Bike parts have been sold.

I have updated the first post.
So the repro speeder flaps float (real ones sink) & the X-wing gun sinks when pushed into water (real ones will float to the surface)
Can others please check their real ones to confirm my findings.

The other repro parts are prooving slightly more difficult to identify Evil or Very Mad I will add more info as I find it.

Good work James. Checked all my XWing guns and they all float, and when pushed under. I'm sending you a PM with a picture showing numbers and mould circles on the real ones for you to compare the repro with.

Well as expected these are virtually 'perfect'

real on the left


note the 'mould number' is '1' on both fakes (just below the mould/injection circle). Obviously a real one could have this number as well.
A mould number can also be found in the mould circle itself ( on my Palitoy version)

The only main difference is weight. Real ones are 5.5 grams the fakes are slightly lighter at around 4.5 grams.

Good work AJ, more + earned. It's dispapointing that there aren't any real tell-tale signs that these are repros. Did you try floating them yet?
I'll check mine later to see if any of them have different mould numbers than '1'.

I have 2x '4' & a 'Palitoy' one with a '2' in the mould circle. They all sink ( real ones sink slightly more slowly Laughing but nothing really to report unfortunately )
