I just found out that my R2 Droids saber is repro affraid

I bouht it many years ago, before I learned about there was such things as repro weapons.

Does the original saber also sink in water ?

That hurts.. Sad


How does your saber look like?

There is a painted repro saber listed on TIG's reference site.

That must be the repro one 100%.

Maybe one of our members here has a spare one for sale.

That could be nice, on Ebay it looks like it would be cheaper to buy a figure with saber, than a new saber Shocked

Pfft. That's bad luck Lars Sad You could try putting up a Want To Buy in the sales section of TIG. Or you might find a slightly beat R2 with an original saber somewhere that's a bit cheaper. Good luck.

Thanks guys.

I don't hope you are right.

Because the one that I have for the POTF R2-D2 looks original to me and it also sinks.

Can any of you test your own original saber ?

im not a expert by no means but i have both figures and i sent my droids r2 for grading so i know its real real the droids saber is cast in darker green plastic like some else said and it dose not float the potf r2 saber is slightly lighter and dose float

there are a lot of fake out there including a repro that floats and is cast in green plastic but its slightly shorter

As far as I'm aware original Kenner 'pop-up sabers' should have a mold circle. I can't comment on Glasslite!
