... and the fact that it looks like its a Taiwan fett inside, which only came on ROTJ and Droids cards... but there are lot of other red flags on this one. Its a very poor repro.
 
"This is honestly one of the most beautiful figures i have come across in my 15 years of collecting Star Wars action figures I would easily grade this figure at a 9.2 or higher"

God,what a Tube

IMHO you would be better off buying carded figures from the Classifieds section here on Rebelscum. I have never had a problem with anyone here who has a good amount of feedback. I can't say the same for ebay. At least fakes get called out here and we all try to stick together and help each other add legit pieces to our collections.

I just wish these repro's were easier to spot. The drop test and water float test etc.. just don't do 100%

I'm thinking of buying a dog that can smell out repro's :p
 
I think the best way to tell a repro is to touch it. Repros are getting better quality lately. I was looking at a bin of weapons from a seller at CV and they were all bogus but had great details. They just felt cheap, didn't have that vintage tackiness and weren't as flexible as vintage weapons.

Funny how this troll started everyone on a long rant just like she wanted. Classic. Probably gettin' a lot of giggles for being such a naughty girl.

I didn't include Scott's (buyer) email here, but it's listed in the Q&A... you should email him and let him know what's up.

cmon. everyone prefers real weapons...however, even though we know that the repros are fake, theyre still really fun to play with. i mean...what?
 
Interesting on the Fett auction. I thought something looked fishy in the picture and requested more pictures be emailed to me. Now I see the auction has been ended.
