Hi,

This is my time starting a thread so apologies if I’m asking a dumb or much asked
question, but are there 2 variants of this blaster that are both genuine Lego?

I seem to have 2 types in my collection those being:

Type 1 - Printed with Lego logo in the recess above the trigger on one side and
the part number on the opposite recess. The trigger has 4 numbers separated by
a hyphen, with one pair of numbers underlined. When rifle butt is placed to the
right, there is a large circular recessed molding mark on the upper surface
of the butt.

Type 2 - No Lego logo or part number in recess above the trigger. The trigger
itself has a letter c in a circle on one side and a single digit number on the
other. Circular molding mark on the butt is very subtle and on the opposite side
to Type 1. This type (Type 2) is that shown in the 2nd picture for part 57899
on this website (the first photo is a computer render with no markings).

So logic would dictate that both are legitimate as one has the Lego logo and
the other is used by this website, but just wanted to ask the question to improve
my knowledge and know definitively.

I did a brief search of the forum and it doesn’t seem to have had a specific
thread before, but again apologies if this is a well worn subject that I’ve just
missed.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Cheers

Thank-you for the link.

It would appear they’re both legit, which is great news.
