How do we distinguish between Luke's yellow sabre? Real or repro? The pictures on IG all look the same to me. I do have a couple taken from these figures I got off a collector. It has a semi rounded transition( not full rounded) so I do not know if it's a V4 original rounded Tip or repro V4-V8( all looks same to me). Both Sabres passed the drop test.How to differentiate between real and fake lightsabres Img_7111

It has been confirmed that the Sabres are repro V8, due to the hornbill shaped hilts just like V8 repro. I have already cut up the Sabres to destroy them, as repros do not deserve to exist.
