I have got these sabers in hand now. The 'bottom shape of 'rectangle' that surrounds the 3 buttons' is not always present!!!

Two fakes on the right




Fakes on the left this time



to me, noticeable differences are the striations on the shaft of the reproductions & the angle of the hilt

Hi AJ, are these the ones being sold by paugildin-6 and joggers78? They’re pretty good. It’s going to make Lightsaber identification even harder Crying or Very sad

That's crazy, the mould is so so similar (apart for the slight difference at the rectangle) that this repro looks to have been intentially made with the purpose of defrauding anyone and everyone - without detailed photos in the auction/for sale listing. It will be hard to see what you are buying.

These repro sabers have now been entered onto TIG's archive and are listed as V5 Floating Repros.
