    Mar 9, 2015, 6:05 PM - Which of the 4 darts have the tips painted? (ROTJ) #1

    Hello all, I recall seeing a pic once on here of a close-up of the darts. After no luck searching here and Google, I've come seeking help. The two darts in question would be the four that are on the Right gauntlet. Assuming dart 1 is closest to the thumb, and dart 4 the opposite/outer one, can anyone help? Thanks!

    I asked Raf this very same question and got this very detailed response. (Answer...it depends).

    It's hard to tell the correct colors for the ROTJ right gauntlet darts, but judging by these images the colors are: black, red, black and red.

    The MoM, DaG and SWtE exhibits shows a black, clean, black, clean setup, but this gauntlet is not the ROTJ Hero:

    The AoSW and CI-V exhibits have the black, red, black and red colors; this also isn't the ROTJ hero gauntlet, but the modified and slightly repainted Pre-Pro #2 gauntlet:

    Please note, I edited Raf a little bit by removing an additional picture he sent me for reference. But I thought the extra pictures and knowledge might help someone. I searched for this information on this site..but gave up and messaged Raf who of course had the answer.

    Not trying to muddy the waters, but does anyone have any insight into the ESB darts? I could never tell if the tips should be painted or not.

    The clearest photo I saw was listed on this site (http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/galle...hp?photo=10958)

    In the photo the last two darts looked very clean to me and the first two looked painted. Maybe Raf has some ideas since ESB is his thing.

    Yes, the first 2 dart tips are painted, while the other 2 tips are unpainted:

    The color looks the same reb/brown color used on the gauntlets and the jetpack.
