Does the V3 bright blue Hoth Stormtrooper rifle that came with the Glasslite figure sink when tapped like the black Vlix rifle? Or does it rise back up after being submerged?

Any idea why the Glasslite Vlix rifle sinks like a repro even when it is authentic?

Different companies, different plastics.

Although I've only been lucky enough to own one black vlix rifle I've had 4-5 light blue snowtrooper ones. All the same sculpt, same breaks points and all sink when tapped.

Thanks for the reply. I am getting into the Glasslite figures and trying to learn about the nuances of their accessories. That bright blue rifle is cool and I don't want to get tricked with a repro, or think I have a repro and it be the real thing!
