Hi all

I am thinning out my collection and selling off a lot of figures but before I do I would like to ensure I am selling the correct gear for my figures.

I have two Wickets for sale but I noticed the spears are different colours, brown and a more caramel colour

Are both of these correct or do I have a nasty repro?

All advice welcome

Hi there,

Many years ago, I was given the advice that genuine vintage Wicket spears are fairly 'flexible' whereas repro's aren't.

If you can gently press on both ends the spear should flex a little bit & then spring itself back into shape... I learned this well over a decade ago so, of course, given modern reproduction techniques this advice could now be worthless.
