A lot of these are coming up on flea bay at the moment. Hope no newbies get caught out.

I blame one ebay seller especially as they seem to be flooding the market with them.

Yeah there alot out there being sold as real items. I make custom Blue Snaggles but mainly to order and ONLY ever sold as a 100% custom, Manily cos some people carnt afford the £100 for a real 1 and are willing to take a custom for £10-15. I know the main person on there and he has recived 4-5 negatives for it and people still buy them thinking there real >.< last 1 he had trouble with sold for £50

Great work JediRebel.

This guy is selling it as vintage too.Which to me mean's an authentic piece.no mention of it's a custom very shady.

I don't know how they make these repro's so close to the real thing but yeah i can see a newbie getting a fake with these.

It's saddening but scammer's keep making this sht and getting away with it.
