Innocent till proven guilty, but theres a real bad smell around this and imo its not looking good for TT.
From the start of JJ's allegations i said on TIG if i was a gambling man id have a tickle on part or all of his story to be true, you just dont make that stuff up in that detail unless you were mentally unstable.
TT stated he hardly knew this Arthur guy its alleged he got the bubbles and cards from, FACT it turns out he ran a company with him and the records show he did.
TT stated he never had unused card, FACT now it turns out he allegedly sold unused cards to members on forums, the same ones he said he never had, photo proof has been posted.
TT allegedly has a second ebay account he has used to buy mint loose figures at top dollar, also many people are stating they sold many lots of loose mint figures to him.
JJ states he only just missed out on the deal for these cards and bubbles, from the same guy Arthur that TT had a company with, Arthur told JJ that he sold them all to TT, JJ states he confronted TT at a toy fair and TT admitted to him he bought them, also JJ claims it was common knowledge back then.
Thats the short list, there seems to be even more allegations.
Why would somebody make this stuff up, i dont buy the revenge story, JJ threw most of this stuff up after TT called him a liar, JJ carved him up imo, now TT wont respond because IMO he is scared of what JJ knows, he doesnt want to be backed into a corner with his own words, any person who was innocent would be in there with nothing to fear fighting for his rep imo.
JJ might have a poor rep with some, but ive looked into it, ive seen worse, he might have had a few fake props go through his hands but he has had a mammoth amount of SW go through his hands, he has the Guinnuss book of records biggest SW collection before SS, he's no dope when it comes to SW, the props business is notorious for fakes, and having as much stuff go through your hands as TT, the odds say you will get a few fakes, and they would be damn hard to tell the difference.
Also he is trustworthy enough for a guy like Kurtz to share a warehouse with him.
And with these seals, where theres a will theres a way, i dont believe all the talk that it would be impossible to seal them, he could have an old machine, or most likely he could have found another way to do it.
Im not stating he is guilty, innocent till proven guilty, but its just my opinion that theres a lot of meat on this bone, i know who id be putting my money on.
I genuinely believe that JJ believes everything he is saying, i dont think he is lying BUT that doesnt mean he has the right facts, many a man has believed his allegations before and have been wrong in the wash up, so innocent till proven guilty.
Some people are calling for AFA and UKG to get involved, whats that going to prove, they have already passed these things off as legit, they arnt going to turn around and shoot themselves in the foot.
Some are calling for JJ to produce a list he says he has, that wont prove anything either, the fact is there isnt much proof either parties can produce apart from 3rd party hearsay.
The proof will come from people in the community if there is any.
I dont know either of them, have no horse in the race, so my opinion is just an outsider looking in.
