PostSubject: Ewoks vintage cartoon staffs... do they float?   Mon Oct 05, 2015 7:56 am

Hi everyone. I am new to the site and this is my first post. Do the staffs/spears to Wicket and Logray from the 1985 vintage Ewoks line float or sink? I cannot find them in the weapons description links. Do they have the usual glossy Kenner weapon look or are they matte? The reason I ask, is I just acquired 2 loose figures off ebay and I am worried I just got stuck with repro weapons. They sank. The seller claimed he bought them as a collector when they came out originally and is the original owner.

Welcome to TIG welcome

That's a great question. Dulok Shaman, Wicket , Gorneesh and Dulok Scout all have replacements. But I'm not really sure if they float. Hopefully someone will chime in.

However, I'm going to order the 3 repro's which are all available on reproparts. Once i get them , we'll examine them!

I think I have seen a reproduction logray staff in the past. May not be on the site your talking about John, but I think I saw it up on ebay one time.

The seller says he opened the Logray figure himself and swears the staff is original. I did a more extensive float test. The staff "floats" if you carefully set it on top of the water. If you tap it under or hold it down, it does not float all the way up but sort of suspends midway in the water. May be legit. I don't know.

The seller said the Wicket spear is repro. Bummer. Now I need to find an original one. I throw repro stuff in the trash.
