Hey guys, see if you can help me verify that this saber is repro. I haven't seen this repro saber on any of the sites, so I think there's a very small possibility its legit. Thanks for any help.

Andy I have to check but I think my trilogo Ben has a similar saber.

Hang tough for about 30 minutes. I'll check

I can't confirm 100% but I have seen a few tri moc bens that have had a darker saber, but I can't remember them looking quite like yours in colour- Maybe John can get a good picture for you of his!

Had a bit of a search for you Andy, I found a trilogo Ben with a darker saber- not great pictures though.

I noticed you mention it's a no COO figure on the RS thread- indication of a tri Ben perhaps? There are lot's of no COO figures on trilogo cards.

Andy

I took about 20 photos of my trilogo Ben and these are the best I can manage. I think you're okay TBH. Now in real life the saber looks blu-er but when I take my pics you can see the slight translucence

Joe+DB, I knew you guys would be able to figure this one out. That saber is a match imo. Very grateful for your help. I will leave the seller positive feedback .

I replied to the RS thread and have been asking about for you Andy. Im assuming you did the scratch test and it isnt painted the dark colour blue is very similar to the painted repro colour.

Going by the pics provided in this thread its defo the darker Tri Logo Ben Saber and 2 other people PM'd me on RS to say they though that could be the case Smile

Andy can you try and take 2 full size pictures on a white background with your camera and email them to admin@imperialgunneryforum.com buddy? - Looks like we need to add this saber to the lightsaber page.

I know we still need a few Lukes and a few Ben Sabers the more people that can help with pics the better. Im currently adding about 3 pics per day and have a backlog of 20 pics to still go up but as we know its a never ending resource that needs as many contributors as possible Wink

Jay

Will do Jay. It's definitely not the painted repro. It matches all the characteristics of the tri-logo Ben saber. Will get those pics to you asap for the guide.
