jawa repro blaster???

Post by firstjedi on Sun Aug 12, 2018 6:14 am

Hi I'm new to Tantive, looking for some help on detecting a repro jawa blaster, recently picked up 4 jawas and I almost positive one is a  repro.

It's the one in the top left of the photo.  The others pass the float test but this one sinks when you tap it.  Seems discolored like paint coming off.  Also seem like their are lots of injection points (stock, handle, muzzle, and just beneath the barrel).

Any help much appreciated.

Dave

Dave, I would say repro. Those are definitely air bubbles, when it got cast.

welcome on board.

Yup. But hey atleast it’s 1 out of 4. I have bought a few repros just because I didn’t look well enough when buying a “complete” figure at a con or a toy show. Now that I’ve only got a few last 17 left, I’m paying more attention. rofl
