Some poor guys are going to get screwed soon. DT figures aren't my thing but it scares the hell out of me if I ever decide it's a thing I want to collect.

For a seasoned collector the difference is obvious to see.

And I've seen a vader with repro dt saber sell for more the 60€ a few moths ago.

the only problem is when buying you only see a pic
so untill you have it in your hand it is going to be difficult to spot by pic alone

Just at a passing glance , I can see some things that stick out.

I'll just say that if you get an oppotunity to get a DT figure, the TIG team can authenticate it through a free service we have for members. Just PM Jay or a mod.

As John said PM one of the team and we offer free DT Saber authentication if you need it Smile

I cant believe he added letters to the hilt total out of order imo maybe hes hitting back for his RS ban? Either way hes is a knobs trick in my book there is just no valid reason to try and make them closer to the originals it serves no purpose other then people been conned down the line Sad

Totally Agree - what a shite thing to do.

This is gonna hurt a lot of folks - epecially the ones who don't use or know about the free service here on TIG.

I can imagine AFA jumping with joy as this is only going to help them in the long run - after being shafted once on a fake DT Luke sabre, I can see many folks wanting to get AFA DT Lukes just to be sure they are the original.

He does seem to mark them ... but as I posted on RS:

I'm not afraid of what he shows, I'm more afraid of what he doesn't show. These, even without markings, are pretty obviously fakes. But what if he has others that are closer to the real thing ....

I really HATE repros, so I wonder if there is no way to make him stop producing this crap. I mean, even the sabers should be copyrighted right ?

I hope there is a way to stop it all repro. Maybe Hasbro can stop him ?

Is it only Double Telescoping sabers there is repro with letters on the hilt ? or has he also maid the Telescoping sabers with letters on the hilt ?

I have a set of the 3 DTs repro sabers that he makes and they do look great, (i can not afford the real thing and these look the business on display) they are so good they would fool 99% of buyers and they have no markings or initials to id them, the colour match is one way of identifiying them for sure! and possibly the rough edges where they have been seperated from each other after leaving the mould?

iam no fan of repros Angry SW and as an ebay seller i always list every single one i sell clearly as a replica weapon!
as much as we hate the things they are there and they will never go away so just arm yourself with the best possible knowledge and do your research thouroughly, i know the mods can and do help and there advice is invaluble in these matters Very Happy

Why collect at all then ? Why not get fakes for everything ? IMHO collecting is about working to get complete and try to find even the rarest items with an insane amount of luck. It's just the more rewarding when you do find that piece you thought you'd never get.

Why fool yourself, or try to fool others into thinking you have something rare while it's fake ? IMHO it defeats the whole purpose of collecting. and don't even get me started about genuine (especially starting) collectors that get shafted by someone who sells this repro crap as real (something about which you boast with the line '99% of collectors won't see the difference'). It's just sickening to me.

Ah well, I will probably just never get it anyway .... less people seem to understand these days you need things left to be desired, and you just can't have it all ... (man, I feel old now Smile )

totaly agree if you carn't afford the real thing then don't bother at all
because all you are doing is fooling yourself i carn't see anyone getting any enjoyment looking at at repro in there collection

quote " oh look at my dt saber dosen't it look new it was only made yesterday don't you know i love colecting vintage"

lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol!

all i can say is they are bad for the hobby full stop and they should all be burned and the scammers that make them

and as for the ebay seller that try to pass them off as real this is for you up yours

anyway that is my rant for today back to real vintage collecting :buzzing: 0

Guys please dont get me wrong! iam not endorsing Repro anything and i wasnt boasting about anything just stating a fact that they look authentic to the untrained eye! i dont go round talking shit and selling repro crap and my collection is 100% authentic apart from these DTs repros, i agree Collecting Original Vinatage is a joy and a challenge! and sellers who pass on any Repro weapon as an Original is a dirty little lowlife scumbag!!! something that really bugs me with sellers on ebay is all this stuff about weapons that float all being Original and that drives me NUTS!!!!!! ahhhhhhhhhh

i wish you happy hunting and much success in completing your collections and the Repro Men well they can take a hit or ten! from this guy :emperor:

I know this is rather controversial, and I completely agree that this is going to do major damage to the market for DT sabers, but I think I may pick up a set for display. I personally don't mind if they're real or not, so they'll do for me.

I sincerely hope it doesn't mean loads of people start selling them off as 'the real deal' on the bay though... But I guess that will happen whatever we do. Sad

I have had this discussion many times over so this is my take on it for those "interested" in picking some fake DT sabers up.

Why do you, or anyone find DT sabers interesting enough to want to own them? The answer is because they are rare!

Picking up fake sabers for 20-30 quid just to sit on a shelf because you might not ever own a real set is just a waste of money IMO.

Spend that 20-30 quid on some real vintage, it could get you a handful of mint loose figures or even a MOC just don't buy repros of something that is rare, because it defeats the point of WHY you want to own it!

Come to terms with the fact that 90% of all collectors will never ever own a set of DT's and just be comfortable with it, I would love an original hard copy of a figure or a piece of photo art but a play doh replica and an inkjet print out are not going to make my collection better should I "cheat" and go the repro route.

Also - this guy isn't doing this for any other reason than to make himself money, so go ahead and make someone money that has shown no interest before this point of marking his sabers in a way that someone else couldn't pass them off as legitimate.

Hmm, you have valid points there. It would still be nice to have a set of Luke, Ben and Vader on display with fully extended sabers. But your point about the fact that I could use the money for real vintage stuff is a valid one, I guess.

Now you are talking! MMM Trilogos Laughing

I appreciate a lot of rare things but I also realised that if I didn't like them enough to spend 3-4K on real ones then I obviously didn't like them enough to collect them. Which is also why I wouldn't want replicas, there is just no connection there for me (especially not to a fake!)
