Hello,

I recently purchased what I think is a Droids pop up saber. Passes the float test, sinks with pressure, epm is present, and it is slightly darker than the POTF one I have. Only thing that concerns me is that it is a little more flexible compared to my Glasslite and POTF pop up sabers. Any thoughts? Picture attached with the item in question at the right. (Glasslite, POTF, Droids)

Welcome to the forum. Having checked all the info available to us, your saber description does fit the known criteria for a Droids version ( apart from flexibility). The nearest known repro to it is a floater whereas yours is a sinker as is an original Droids. So i'd say yours looks good based on the info we currently have.

It looks good to me as well. Having spent sometime comparing both Kenner and GL's I'd say nothing to worry about. There are repro out there, some painted which are easy to spot, the others are molded green but have less definition in the casting espically the EPM mark but they float.
