PostSubject: Jedi Luke Palace Blaster -- V2 Gray Possible Repro   Sat Jan 05, 2013 3:26 pm

I saw this auction on ebay selling Jedi Luke.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230906321211&ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:US:1123

The Palace Blaster could be an undocumented repro. It appears to be V2 (Cast in Grey) repro.

The grey Palace Blaster, on ebay, has the general look, but lacks the fine details of an original. The bump / circle below the barrel is missing. Also, the two bumps / circles above the handle are not present.

According to TIG, V2 repro was cast in black.

http://www.imperialgunnery.com/palaceblasters.htm

Call me out if I am wrong. The photo the seller provided was not clear. Based on my experience with Palace Blasters, I would state it is a repro. But, I do not own an original gray Palace Blaster.

See photo.

Let us pin this down.

Mmm. From the photo, my first thought is repro blaster (although the colour looks ok for a Taiwan version).
The hilt of the saber dosen't look right either (the edges of the area between the handle & blade looks square rather than angled).

Other opinions?

Sabre looks odd, however I've seen them photographed that way before. Why not ask the seller for another photo?

Yes, I did think the hilt looked odd, but I did not want to clutter the thread. So, I focused on the blaster.

I did request more photos.

In a letter with the seller, he told me if I had any doubts about the weapons...don't bid. Yep, I guess you can do it that way.

We'll see what happens.

That sounds to me like he knows there repo but the other weapons in his lots look ok so he might not, I can't see the 2 bumps from that picture but it doesn't sound right and the saber is definitely a new repo, colour looks great and I bet it floats to.

Sorry about the delay. I had some business that needed to be done.

No, the seller did not provide any further photos. He said, "...bid at your own risk." That left a sour taste in my mouth.
