WATCH OUT / WARNING - ANOTHER FAKE ITEM.

WATCH OUT / WARNING - ANOTHER FAKE ITEM.

Pic of item in question & a link to the full disclosure on Star Wars Forum UK below, I would appreciate it if questions were directed to the thread on the forum as I do not have the time to answer questions on multiple platforms, but feel everyone needs to be aware of these fakes.

Thanks for sharing that, Frank.

Given what you described, it would be surprising if there weren't more out there.

There are more out there Chris, they all trace back to the same seller, I have this image of his stall at the farthest from event where he had not one, but 2 forsale at the same time, now after speaking with one of the biggest stateside multi pack gurus who said in over 10 years of collecting only 3 had been offered his way for sale, confirmed the likelihood of 2 being available at the same time on the same stall & not even in the states is astronomical, sadly gauging numbers sold is near impossible as they have either been sold via that event or behind closed doors in direct sales.

The image is shown on the thread on SWF along with many others.

Frank, I've been reading thru the thread on SWFUK and I'm surprised that you've been able to trace the fake boxes back to Jeff G., again. It's a shame that people can try and reproduce stuff like this.

I'm waiting on the day, reproduction Canadian paper & card board items start showing up. Evil or Very Mad
