Hi Paul, really can't be specific here, but the endor blasters, I've never seen any in that 'translucent' blue with the excess flashing. I would like to hear other opinions my self, but my initial thought would be very sceptical.

The tie blasters, again, not sure, do the LL nes sometimes/always have letter stamps? not sure, I'm missing one myself.

The ugnaught bags, the first looks to have an awefully large amount of excess flashing which seems odd, personally I'd question it. The second one I think may be a modern Star Wars accessory, I vagualy remember seeing this on a modern ugnaught somwhere.

Hope this helps in some way  Very Happy

Yes the extra flashing is not a good thing : https://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t3781-fake-black-palace-blasters
and as Wolff mentioned translucent fakes- what next?

Had these for years just got round to asking Alex would you like the palace blaster for the weapons guide?

The endor blaster would be a very welcome addition to the imperial gunnery archive.
close up pictures from either side would suffice.

Just a quick thought that popped into my head earlier, I posted a thread a while back about a smuggler blaster I had that looked odd, mishaped and a blue I had not seen before, the general opinion from the feedback was that it was real, just possibly a poor mold and poor colour applied to the plastic. Can't help but think that the colour looks ery much like those Endor Blaster and the poor mold style also looks similar. Here's the pics (midle one):

Also here is the original thread here which also has more pic's.

agreed...looks fake and made from the same material Sad

Check closely for any tiny air bubbles. These are not injection molded. Thats why they have the exact same mold (kind of silicon mold from the original) but on the other hand look crude and unclean.
