PostSubject: Can anyone help?   Sun Jan 07, 2018 7:22 pm

Hi all,

I'm looking to sell my collection this year and wanted to make sure my items are up to scratch - i.e. that I'm not accidentally pedalling anything replica.

It's the weapons and accessories I'm really concerned about, particularly as some accessories often seem to be worth more than the characters themselves. If I was able to take a picture of all my accessories (with a number next to each) would someone be able to identify if any are fakes?

One thing that might help is I haven't added to this collection in over 20 years, so any more recent replicas won't be in there.

Thanks in advance

This is important information, the repro weapons of the 90's are quite easy to identify.
Of course, pictures will be needed to get help.

Fantastic, thank you!

I've uploaded a picture of my weapons/accessories from both sides.


Facing left




Facing right





I think the forum might have shrunk the images down, but I've got the originals.

Again any help you can give me on winkling out any fakes would be brill.

I'm particularly interested to know if 6 might be a genuine A-wing blaster, and whether 21 one of these special metallic Bespin blasters?

Thanks all

33-37 are mostly gi Joe I believe. 36 may be star wars. Seems it goes to atst or a mini rig, can't recall off top of my head.  For gi Joe weapons check http://www.yojoe.com/action/whobit/
You enter the color then type, etc. It will lead you to the answer.

Also 24 is a modern potf han solo gun I believe.

Need a close up picture of # 21- could be 'metalic' ( shiny not metal) and worth $100s.

# 16 could be fake.

# 6 looks grey not black?

Hi there, that's interesting - it might be because I removed the colours and a bit of the red from the picture.

Here are the original shots of those three up close, left and right sides.

Thanks

21 looks metalic, gaffi stick I still think is fake ( float test it) if the endor pistol is black then that's a winner.
