Did it come in a heat sealed bag inside the box or an insert or both?

Thanks chaps.

Thanks James. The guy said that at the end of production they had baggies and just used them to get rid of all production so used them too in the boxes. :scratch:

"[quote=Lafos]I never saw this clear plastic insert before. The LL Speeder Bike usually came wit the cardboard insert. [/quote]"

mine did come from Mexico & I have enquired about the clear insert.

it's possible but not plausible to me to have sealed contents & such a crappy box. (at 300 pounds- crazy price)

I asked him about it and he said they used baggies as a way to get rid of the end of production and that he's been collecting for 12 years. he said he bought it sealed and was the first to open it to check its contents... hmm! unsure

Then he said that if doesn't sell on ebay (8 days left) then he'll put it back up in 2 weeks after he gets it UKG'd. Sure it'll take a bit longer than that and is he saying this to convince me it's genuine and to encourage me to want it even more before he gets it graded? Rolling Eyes

And btw can anyone see where it's written Lili Ledy on the bike as I cant and he states that it does and can see from pics?

Ham, never heard of baggies being used before by Ledy mate.

You can see that there is a sticker on the underside of the bike near the gun.
Most Ledy vehicles had a sticker on them.
My Ledy bike has sticker residue in this area but no sticker.

Ask to see a photo of the rear of the bike where the flaps are as this is how you can tell it's Ledy.

Yeah me neither Stu, it's all too suss I think, tho I would just have the box, lol!

Then if it has the rear of a ledy (it's like a bronzey metal right?) then what?

I have a feeling it will turn out to be okay. The LL folk could have just put it in whatever they had left. I think it would be a shame if he gets it U graded. Maybe ask Thorsten or Matthias? Or maybe Merlin?

Or try Cristian (Mr Ledy), don't think he's been on here much lately though.

I do think it could be Ledy, especially because of the sticker but it's a lot to pay for a baggie
when it may not turn out to be leggit.

It could be thrown out by AFA if it is sent it off for U Grading if they do not think the bag is leggit.

If it is leggit, like Emiel says it would be a shame to U grade it, but each to there own.

I watched this go the other day and was close to bidding but backed off incase any of the scout collectors were gunning for it. It seemed to go pretty cheap as well! Did anybody here manage to land it?
