Going through my camera before CEII, might as well add this pic real fast.
These are the telescopic sabers in my earlier post compared to an original vader saber under uv light.

Original glows orange, very easily seen under uv.
Red repro does reflect some and look red.
Yellow and Blue does not reflect uv.


I have not tested an original ben saber, it's at the museum for some months, so that will not happen anytime soon. But the yellow original saber does glow yellow.

Feels nice finally having set up my uv that I should have done a year ago. I put it up into one of does lamps that you can drag down when needed. I'm going to keep testing uv tests on sabers, so far it looks to be a very fast test for sabers, but I know there is a good bunch better made repro sabers out there that I don't have.

Photos of my repro pop-up saber can be found here, as I can't see the point it duplicating them....

Note - This repro floats!!

Tried to take white as requested, but the reason I used green on the other pictures is because the autofocus on my camera sucks against white. And it is a lot of extra work to try and correct the colors. Anyway, here is the pictures requested.

Thanks to Bonsai Matt cheers 


vs Repro

"The repro is clear or sometimes smoky grey in colour, the original is yellowed. Another molding difference is to look at are the 'dimples' on top, on the repro these are less defined than on the genuine."

A few issues with the imperial blasters enteries on the main site.

Shouldn't V9 and V10 be combined, both the same molding just different colour?

V11 top toys, looks damaged to me. Maybe caught under the bubble during production and distorted by the heat?

Silver kea moll, images should be moved up the thread to the v1-c section, looks odd placed after repro's.
