Man they are starting to make them harder to spot, do these float or sink. I know lots who use that method a lot. Detail was usually a good way to spot them as well as colour. The detail in these looks pretty good.

These float...

The fake Imperial blaster has the diamond cross hatch pattern very similar to the 'Taiwan' V5 blaster but barrel end, side clip and handgrip shape do not match.

These floating blasters have now been labelled as Imperial Blaster Repro V11 and Jawa Blaster Repro V6, and given an entry on the archive.

In addition to her eBay account, they have been on Gumtree as well.

And all because so many children were hurting themselves on the hard resin type reproductions...

Weapons are very shiny, i hope they will not damage them a bit for a vintage aspect to trick the buyers

I see people are starting to re-sell weapons these under 'Vintage Star Wars' banner and saying they pass float test without saying they are 'original' or 'reproductions'

Lines are definitely getting blurred now

Thanks for sharing, it's really concerning to see how much progress is being made on these repro weapons.
