POTF Black Endor Blaster? Black-Endor-Blaster-pic_4381

Is this Black Endor Blaster correct? I compared it to the example shown in the TIG weapons section and it's almost identical except for one minor detail in front of the dot on the front of the stock on the side.

Is this OK? Would be it be the correct blaster for an Imperial Gunner?

I'm moving this thread to the main section so people can give it proper attention. For my money, it looks good. Version 3 of the Endor blaster.

See this link:

Imperial Gunnery - Endor Blaster

I think it's righteous but lets get some opinions

Thanks for moving this to the right section.

Maybe I'm just being overly paranoid. Looking at the version 3 in the TIG weapons, it's identical to the blue version shown. But the black version looks like it might have that extra detail where I mentioned.

Well, now that the auction is over (I wasn't the winner BTW):


http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320648524444&ru=http%3A%2F%2Fshop.ebay.co.uk%3A80%2F%3F_from%3DR40%26_trksid%3Dp5197.m570.l1313%26_nkw%3D320648524444%26_sacat%3DSee-All-Categories%26_fvi%3D1&_rdc=1

I was shocked at the price! You could almost get the whole figure for that.

But who's gonna fly it kid? You? lol!


Sorry I can't resist a SW quote !



Seriously though it's not a surprise. If you have a mint Imperial Gunner (good buckle and emblems) you'll pay for it.

I really set myself up for that one, who could blame you! Very Happy

Your right, now that I think about it, I have seen more minty imperial gunners sans blaster out there than with. I guess it the law of supply and demand.

Patience my friend.....

I waited about 18 months watching them go for £12 - £20 everytime, but sooner or later you will get lucky.

Whilst we are on the subject.....

Blaster one.

POTF Black Endor Blaster? 5424811705_a9788c4ca9

Blaster one. Passes the float and drop tests. Will not sink even if pushed under. It doesn't really tie up with any of the versions on the site. The side button behind the barrel is there but not in crisp detail like the other blasters shown, and the rear section doesn't match any of the versions shown. Any thoughts?

Blaster two.

POTF Black Endor Blaster? 5425413294_4479d91911

Blaster two. Passes the float and drop tests. Will not sink even if pushed under. Crisp detail on the sides but rough around the mould joins (looks better in hand). Just a bad original casting or a test passing fake? Again, any thoughts.

Cheers.
