Hi there.

I'm fairly new to this  and was wondering if anyone of you good folk could help me.
I've recently bought an Obi Wan and Vader Figure, both bought as complete originals.
I'm satisfied the figure and cloak are original, however, I'm not so sure with regards the Sabres. Both look the same, apart from the colour. They are both round tipped, smooth to feel and the tips all feel brittle. I've done the float test and both float until submerged when they sink like a stone. Does this behaviour indicate a repo or original?

Any help will be greatly received

Many thanks

The float test is not useful for sabers:

In a week you should be able to post up some good close up pictures.  We can help from there
