After some discussion, the mod team have decided to make this a sticky topic, to ask questions about the legitimacy of an item.

We have also decided that to be fair to everyone, that outing a live auction is not permitted, so instead please post a picture of the item in question, rather than a link to the auction. If you do not know how to do this or need any help posting the picture, please contact myself or anyone else on the mod team and we will gladly help you out. If the said item is determined to be a fake/repro/scam, then we will allow it to be posted in order to alert other TIGers.

Hard to tell by the background like Chris said as we no OH Lukes stand out big time and are often referred to as pumpkin Orange going by the picture it is possible but a close up will confirm it one way or the other Smile

From that picture alone, I would say it's more of a brown hair Luke than an orange.

If you can get closer photos, that would seal the deal though! Smile

I think i would have to say brown hair.

The camera flash makes the hair at the sides appear
more bright/orange.

Dan, the head just doesn't look right. And for $35.00 I don't think I'd take the chance.

I don't think i would ever buy a beater this bad not even for 1$.

You can get a nice Ledy Ree Yees for about $15 loose without a weapon.

Hello,

i´m reading the http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com for some weeks. So I just tried to find my Star Wars figures and I wane start collecting again. Well i´m pretty young so never bought any Star Wars Vintage figure in any store just collected through the internet.

Still wasn´t able to find all my figures – that’s so bad couldn´t find one box. But I tried to check all my accessory to find out if its original or a repro. Well bad luck again, some repro weapons made it in my home, most blasters and some capes. That what happen if you are young (I was 6-18 collecting them) people think they can mess around with you.

But with one weapon i´m not sure: I have 5 Emperors Royal Guard Staffs. Just didn´t bought them all at the same time and not from the same seller, all about 4-10 years ago. One or even two are from collectors stores, who said they were originals. All of them float.

The Problems:

1. One of them is a little bit bigger (not much) than all the other, the plastic is a little darker and the Staff is longer than the others. Marked 1

2. The other 4 have 100% the same color + same flexibility + are not shining at all, if it appears so on the photos it´s due to the flash. They look all the same. But:

a. Two of them don´t line up perfect. Marked 2

b. Two of them line up ok/perfect. Marked 3

Can you tell me if I do have a lot of repro weapons or just one? Or are they all original ore all repro?









Same questions about this snowtrooper cape:
The 4 with the round hole came all with the 1980 L.F.L. figures. They are thinner than the other, a bit more flexibil and not pure white due to some sun light.






Thanks a lot!

I Think the Emperors Royal Guard staff might be Lilly Lady. On eBay therer was one for sale that has the same. Can anyone confirm this?

IMO, figure leg markings are wrong. Need more saber pics.

imo the figure is right early 3 line hong kong coo with the faded brown eyes
the dt allso comes in 2 line hong kong light pants

the yellow on the saber looks wrong but like james said need better pic's
but from that pic it looks like a revalve-it saber

Bumped this thread, a few people i have spoken to didn't know this policy existed at TIG.

I've also amended the title a little to make it clearer.
