    Going through a dispute on eBay, need some help!

    Fellow scummers, looking for some expert help...

    I recently purchased a vintage A-Wing pilot figure from eBay and the figure came with a grey/blue Endor blaster. I've been told this figure and the imperial gunner are the only figures in the collection line to have black endor blasters. The Kenner picture section on RS also explains this figure and the imperial gunner only came with the black Endor blaster, as the blue/grey endor blasters only came with Leia poncho, B-Wing pilot and the At-ST figures.

    I returned the item due to the gun not being the right color. The seller is claiming this figure also came with the blue/grey Endor blaster which I cannot find evidence to support this claim anywhere!

    Looking for clarification from those who know...

    Thank you in advance!

    You are right. He is either misinformed or lying.

    Seller claims he has the John Kellerman reference book that shows a grey/blue Endor blaster with the A-Wing figure... Possible mistake in the book?

    Interesting twist. Believe it or not, I never did get that book. If it is in the book, it must be a mistake (Sansweet's earlier reference book had similar mistakes). Better to get someone here that has the book to confirm it, but I have always had the assumption that POTF figures had solid black weapons as opposed to the majority of ROTJ figures with blue ones.

    I recently won a dispute by referring them to the photo archive section on here and the TIG explaining that these are the more upto date references that most collectors worldwide refer to. Explain how highly regarded both sources are in the worldwide collecting community and then link them to the associated images on the sites - that's how I won.

    I also fell to this in the past with the seller claiming the same. I think that some of the very later figures may have been packaged with the blue ones (trilogo) which don't help the cause.

    edit - packaged in error to avoid confusion

    Have you seen any carded Tri-Logo ones with blue guns?

    Never. But I've read on claims on this forum from members who swear they've seen/owned them - and it doesn't seem to be too unlikely an error.

    edit - Dom on SWFUK claims a grey one was seen on a trilogo a few years back.

    Looks black in the pic... What you think? I thought it was...

    I have have 3 grey/blue Endor Blasters for my B-Wing, AT-ST and Leia Poncho and the one that showed up with this guy was a much lighter color than the ones I have...
