Does anybody out there mix and match blue, blue/black and black rebel blasters with any appropriate figure? RS is telling me that the only black rebel blaster goes to Hoth Han and wanted to get a concensus of how everybody else completes their figures that take rebel blasters. I have so many blues and then so many guys that take blue/black empty handed in the display case. Should the guys stay empty handed and keep the extra blues stored or should I throw em in their hands and check them off as complete??

Btw, I'm new here and this is my first topic so sorry if I offended yea!

The black blaster is mostly found with Han trenchcoat. Han Hoth can be found with many colours ( & even bespin blasters ) I don't get too caught up with what goes with what- at the moment most of my weapons are stored away from the figures. You generally don't have to worry about offending anyone. ( no political, religious or sexual orientation talk, everything else is fair game- including referring to me as the local village idiot Very Happy )

Bare in mind black vs black/blue is tough to compare.... with that said....
I can't cite anything specific since I don't have many MOCs nor baggies to confirm, but I can say I have a 65B Luke XWP with a black/blue blaster... Looks mostly black until you hold it against a strong back light.

Not sure that helps, but at least one confirmed MOC example should help (visually here right now) and there are a bunch that should continue to help show that the black/blue blasters are not exclusive to one figure.... at least the rebel/smuggler/Han blaster. Wink

And of course............

of course the guide has some other examples confirmed and I hope you have checked that out ........

EDIT... AJ beat me to the concept

cheers!

i definitely checked that out the link and its printed in a 3 ring binder in my collection room. thanks for the feedback..

maybe i didn't word it properly but i am trying to get a consensus as if others mix and match their rebel blasters. ie: give greedo a blue blaster, han a blue and snaggletooth a blue and call them complete..

i have some many blue blaster and many guys with empty hands..https://2img.net/u/3011/13/96/10/smiles/260185.gif

haha Smile

For me, I start with a vintage blaster, saber or accy and when I get more in depth with the figure, then I concern myself with it being proper to the COO. So I am sure I have a ton of appropriate, legit blasters, sabers or accys for all my figures but the correct one for each COO is something that I haven't checked/confirmed on all my figures yet.
For me, to start, as long as it isn't a repro, its fine unless it is a big deal figure/variant. Smile

cheers!

Hi there,
I, myself, go by the rebelscumphoto archive guide, but if that's not possible I'm happy to have anything that's genuine vintage.
