The ImperialGunnery.com team has been working on a report since December last year (2014) on a new wave of repros that appeared in Mexico concentrating on the Lili Ledy line of accessories.

Big thanks to Ozio for some outstanding research :clap:

Wow, I had no idea they were making that much. I knew that some Ledy items were being reproduced because. Had seen some ebay auctions for the emporer staff and for the jawa clothes. Did not realize how many things they were getting into. That sucks because Ledy is a fun line to collect and this may discourage others who want to branch out and look into Ledy.

I will add that it is t just the Ledy line being effected by repros. We are discussing this in the Mexican bootleg thread also, but recently some New Mexican bootlegs have appeared that are fom the original molds or recast molds. So they are making reproduction figures. Yes I get the irony they are making repros of fakes/repros. The fact is bootlegs are an accepted collectable and they are making new copies of them. These new copies should be viewed in the same light as say the poon troopers or poon vlix.

Thanks Bryan. Yes I've been reading that thread about the repro Mexican bootlegs: http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t4239p150-the-mexican-bootleg-thread
And on RS too. It's worrying isn't it. The Mexis is a bootleg line I like a lot. It's good that you, Steven and Daren are highlighting the dangers involved for new collectors.
