Thread: Perfect example of repro dangers.

  1. #1

    Perfect example of repro dangers.

    We have been talking about this forever. I have already posted it on the watch out page, however, you would have to be looking for the thread.

    Anyway, there is a seller listing the copy cat proto type fett. Yes the one you can buy for 25.00 dollars. However, the seller is a sell it for you member. I'm not too sure they know what they have. This thing has bid past 100 dollars so far, with 6 days to go.

    This is why repros are dangerous. It's not owning them that is the bad part. It's where it goes next, and this is the perfect example of it.

    heres the link and the original repro to match it up with.

    I reported this item, but I'm not sure what good that form will be. I also sent a message to the seller.

    , dude, look at the bid up to price. Look at kenner in the description. Over 100 dollars for a 25 dollar fake. If you type in rocket firing fett, they show up next to each other.

    You made two threads about something that is clearly a custom and states in both title and description that it’s a custom only because it is a hundred dollars? Check this guys completed listings on customs. I have a feeling you are going to call the FBI.

    It’s certainly misleading to have this in every listing.

    “Great shape! These are custom figures made by and painted by one of the original kenner engineers! Some look no different than prototypes that have surfaced.


    VINTAGE and VERY RARE!




    About this listing:
    All of our prototypes have originated from the original Kenner factory in Ohio and sourced by a former engineer/toymaker who requested anonymity. He worked there for over 30 years and amassed over 100 prototypes of varying levels from Art, original molds, Hardcopy, Test shots, unpainted and salesman/production samples. All prototypes in this auction are actually figures he himself designed and engineered or hand painted.”

    He’s got a bunch of customs including a slave Leia with the same item description claiming it was made by and painted by an old Kenner engineer. It’s boader line lying, but definitely misleading. Both the Leia and Fett state that they’re “vintage and rare.” Seems like I’ve seen this guys postings before somewhere, maybe on this forum. He’s no different than other bayers selling repro junk and fishing for a sucker. When dealing in the bay you will never find a more rechid hive of scum and villainy. We must be caustious....and read the fine print...
