I've not seen any Ledy rough texture or otherwise but it makes sense that they're possible with and without that dot, same as these Kenner. No problem on the pics either I'm just sorry I couldn't help you with any better ones and the V2's butt looks similar to V3 but I'll try and get some better pics on a lighter day.
No worries on the pics! I am just happy that you are assisting my research on this and even happier that the V5 issue seems to me to be more clear now (V4 Ledy and V4 Kenner/Other). If you can get better pics, great, if not no worries at all. Smile

cheers!
Very Happy

Hey guys,

Can you lend me your eyes here?

The following blaster is very close to a V3 (pictures from TIG used below it so you can compare easier - I hope that is alright! Smile), but the there are some differences:
The whole blaster is very sharp in detail, a little dull looking, but a little gritty texture and black in color. I can't see any hint of blue at all.

I think mine may be the same as this but mine does look blue/black compared to my V4 blue/black blaster.

another poor picture.
The imperial blaster is a blue repro for a colour comparison.
But I got myself confused.  Difference between V2 & V3 is barrel thickness?
I think your top middle is a blue/black V2? and 3rd down on the right a blue V2, or is it a worn V1 mold?

I was going through the color of these blasters again, I've just held them up and moved them under the halogen light in the kitchen and here's what I see them as, described by the colour in hand and the translucency of the handles. There not the only Leia blasters I've had but the most unusual and least common I've seen in my collecting.

All the translucent green have the same colour glow, the 2 blue V4's also have a blue/green tint in hand I think.

V4 blue-translucent green
V4 blue-translucent green
V4 blue/green-translucent green
V4 blue black, has a translucent handle but not blue or green, light grey glow maybe
V3 blue/black, nothing under the light
V2 dark blue/black-translucent green
V1 green-translucent green
