I never saw those before in 20 years of collecting.....and now within 2 weeks two of those popped up :confused: :hmm:

Dont get me wrong...Im pretty sure these are "real", but I really would like to know more about those!

How "old" are they....is there more characters...etc....etc...

Are the arms molded in grey/silver?? The legs??

Just to answer some questions above. I can verify that this particular Mexican Gammy Guard is a ligitimate bootleg and was produced in the late 80's. The arms, legs and face are molded in green plastic and the torso in brown, all hand painted. I've also seen a couple that have a more flourescent green limbs as well. The one with silver limbs I also have a pic of. These are very hard to find. Other characters from this line include Snowtrooper, Luke Bespin, Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, Emporers Royal Guard among a couple others. The one above is actually the first one I've seen with white eyes and fangs, usually they are yellow. Very cool piece indeed.

This seller sold this item to me for a reasonable price and he accepted and recieved the payment by paypal for this item and few hours later he told me that he is not able to sale it anymore because somebody told him that this bootleg its very hard to find and this collector told him too that he offer more money than the payment that i send it to him . I guess hes telling that his not an expert collector to me and other because he heard an accept a better offer from another collector and he decide to send my money back.

I have several emails that i recieved from him so i will post them in the spanish forum.

PLEASE DONT BELIEVE IN HIS WORD HIS IS LAYING BECAUSE HE ACCEPT A BETTER OFFER.

Anyway.....a price must be said in this forum (see forum rules)....so this was an illegal auction from the first time posted....I already wondered this wasn't closed by the mods earlier!

I'm sorry to hear your money was sent back after agreeing on a price! I know how you feel, I was once in the same position!

Cheers

PS: I wasn't the guy overbidding you!

I didn't overbid you either. The PM I received said:

"thanks man but im negociating with another guy :p well first to come first to serve."

So backed off.

I'm sorry that happened to you too.

MrJawa if you are reading this you should honor the deal, especially after he held up his end and sent you money. Don't miss out on what this community has to offer to make a couple of quick extra bucks.

if he backs out of this deal he should be banned!! to many new guys doing this on this site. the buyer paid with proof of email on the sale. such a shame we have to deal with people like this!

DO YOUR RESEARCH AND DONT POST IN CLASSIFIED SECTION!!!

How about the guy who is getting the figure step up and let the original buyer have it? Might be a smart move, because if youre outed, its gonna make you look really bad!

Just to let everyone know, I wasn't the other buyer/offerer. A set issued price would have been better, but he was asking for trade or offers. I don't know what the rules really say about that but I can see where an agreed price was blown off, especially after payment, would make someone upset. That, at least, should have been honored.
