I just wanted to let the newer collectors know that there is a Leia Boussh with un-painted overstock helmet being passed off as Lili Ledy on ebay UK. Firstly the figure has no COO, Lili Ledy Leia Boussh has a Hong Kong COO. The helmet is clearly a striped Taiwan example (wrong colour, matt finish & expanded in size).  

Here is the picture.

This seller has sold quiet a few suspect items recently. Best avoided.

The sellers ebay ID hasn't been mentioned yet, just to clarify it is: albob67

Judging by recent feedback and his recent listings he seems to be getting a lot worse than I use to remember.

Hopefully I'm not in breach of TIG policy, but yes, that is the seller & he currently has a Ledy Bib with a Ledy coat dyed burgundy for sale.

I'm glad you agree AJ! Very Happy

The colour is way off! It makes you wander whether his orange Yoda snake is actually genuine? Based on recent sales. I certainly wouldn't buy from him!

That cape is as real, as this flute play is unstaged. Cool
