It does look odd- ask for better pictures.

I can't see it either, maybe (just maybe) it's the angle the picture is taken on & hence why another picture will help. Or just ask the seller why the 'name plate' looks blank. 79 pounds does seem cheap and raises obvious concerns.

It doesn't look like the seller deals with a lot of star wars, the same item ended at 65 pounds last week (didn't meet reserve) I tried to take a picture at a simlar angle to make the name plate blank

it didn't work tongue Dan, have you worked out how to load pictures yet? The display stand sounds uber cool - no idea on price. Your buyers market will be limited because I don't think the postman can deliver it Laughing

looking through his feedback he has sold a few Tri MOCs, most of his pictures are crap, with a flash. It may be worth taking a gamble on it.

I did some work on the photo in Photoshop and there is definitely some information in the nameplate. Why it didn't show up is anyone's guess?

Meccano Han Solo Caronite on ebay Hancar10

Is it worth taking a chance on? Maybe. From the looks of the photo there are three lines of text in the nameplate. Whether that means it's legit or not, that's debatable.

Another red flag for me is the fact that it's unpunched. That's quite uncommon for Tri's.

I have no reason to doubt thats real, bubble is correct, card looks fine, many L17 Tris can be unpunched, the placement of the figure in the bubble is the same as all others I have seen, dodgy camera work aside I vote real.

i have a couple of unpunched trilogos, all last17 figs indeed
i also have this han carbonite cardback with a little "punch" left in the punch-hole Smile
any way.. i'm wondering what type of "back" this is, cause i think there's a difference with my card (collect all 70 in title, but 79 figures shown with "paploo" and "ewok warrior" blacked out in tidy rectangles)
the difference being the whitespace around the name text in the yellow nametag. compared to chris' photoshop results, mine has more whitespace?

i'll try to take a pic asap to compare

speaking of taking pics, jay you'd have to know where the ebayer's main light source was, the angle of the card alone isn't enough Wink

upon closer inspection, it might just be a case of chris' white parts bleeding

(that must've sounded weird for anyone just walking in the conversation Smile )

as for it been correct bubble I have seen some great customs/re-cards with the correct style bubble so some people go to lengths to make things look original although I have seen many kits listed on ebay where the sellers do include on the POP that its reproduction packaging

Same condition but its cheaper , same unpunched card, same bubble + figure placement, I honestly think the one you linked just had a dodgy picture,it can happen, wrong angel, too much flash and a bad reflection is all that you need and we all know ebay is full of people with shit cameras!

It sure is a nice figure, I definitely want to start on a trilogo set at some point.. I don't know how far I can go with it considering some of the prices of them but I think tri's are awesome!
