I recently saw a vintage last 17 Luke Skywalker/ Stormtrooper outfit blaster go for almost £10 on ebay. I thought they were identical to the usual stormtrooper blaster. How do you tell the difference, as my own luke/stormtrooper blaster is mixed in with my other blasters. Here are some variations i have.

Weapon variations P1010004

The tops of the boussh helmets are different colours, and the right hand side, seems to have a smaller muzzle. Small handle on the bespin blaster, and one storm trooper blaster has a nobbly bit on the "bullet catridge" part.

The AT AT blaster is extremely bendy, which i have considered to be repro, as any i had as a child split at the strap, because they were stiff. Am i right, as i recently returned to a seller a similar bendy Hoth Rifle, which was claimed original, and floated.

Broken Bowcaster is odd colour, but doesn't show well in photo. Bluey/green.

Any help on the luke/stormtrooper blaster, or clarifying who these exactly belong to, would be appreciated.

The 'bendy' rifle is from the survival kit.
Have a look inside the Leia helmets, a letter (ie. 'A' ) indicates it came from a Hong Kong version, a mould circle from a Taiwan version.
Luke stormy blaster should be black ( solid black, hold it up to the light) http://www.imperialgunnery.com/imperialblasters.htm
