I opened another E2 Battle Droid figure the other day and I was looking at it's blaster and noticed it wasn't black but it was navy blue. I compared it to the Padme blaster and the blaster from the Battle Droid from Deluxe Mace and noticed the other two blasters were black and more sturdy than the Navy Blue gummy blaster of the Battle Droid basic figure.

Also, can anyone figure out why the Battle Droid blaster from the Battle Droid from Deluxe Mace has a metal thing in the bottom of it? Only thing I can think of for it being is so Mace can hold it in his left hand.
