This may not be news. I've been out of the vintage collecting loop for a few years. I was doing a search for a buddy of mine who just picked up a vintage AT-ST. It has droopy chin guns and I was looking for a fix for him. My search turned up a site called reproparts.net. They sell repros of vintage blasters, 12" accessories, ship and playset parts and even Indiana Jones parts Evil or Very Mad .

Like I said this may not be news to anyone here. But I wanted to give a heads up to what's out there for repro suppliers. I've only ever seen repro parts pop up on ebay. Never a whole site dedicated to selling them.

Maybe I'm waaaaay out of the loop. Do people who support repros outnumber us that don't like/want them??

We've known about this site for a few years now and have a few bits and pieces up on the Gunnery.
But when I first learned of this site my heart sank. I couldn't believe at the time there were so many repro parts for things relating to vehicles and play-sets.The person who runs it also has an eBay.

What's funny is the site looks like it's from the 90's. You forget they're in business. "Family owned" as well.

I figured it was old news. I was always lucky when I was actively buying vintage stuff. I usually always bought from people I knew or friends of friends who were well known collectors. I didn't have to worry about repro crap so I never dug into it that much.

I didn't know there was a site that sold only repo stuff this is new to me. As I only really have online to buy my stuff this is good to know and something to watch out for. We don't have many major collectors or stores here to buy Vintage Star Wars that is why once I find people I trust I will get what I need through them.
