No offense to asia here Razz but judging by World of Warcraft money farmers, where people can survive on farming gold and sell for like no sums at all I believe that one could live a year on selling a faked meccano...
Last time I got scammed by a larger sum was from hong kong Razz it wasn't even vintage.

I'm sorry about the faked meccano btw. It sucks as hell being scammed Sad


I keep my repros, it makes it easier to identify others in the future got them in a special bag marked "REPRO" with larger letters then that. I wont burn them, but they won't leave here either. I payed a lot for some of that plastic crap Razz

Luckily it was only 20 quid, my own fault in a sense, do you know when you see something you think might be something great, and it blinds you to some probably quite obvious flaws. I think if I'd have paid a bit more attention and looked a little harder I may have spotted a few tell tale signs, but than again that's not the point really is it!

Don't worry Jase, I'm in the process of that, he's currently not replying to my emails, regardless of stating in his description, " if your not happy I will refund you". Yes he will be getting negative feedback and reported to Ebay where I'll be telling them it is fraud, which we all know they don't like, and yes I will name and shame him on here!

P.S..... Jase get that chopping board washed it's filthy, you'll do your self a mischief eating from that! Very Happy

I would only recommend buying any rare variant from either trusted variant collectors or from the country the figure is known to originate from, in the Meccano Fett's case that would be ebay.fr or a French seller if you came across one.

These ones turning up on ebay uk are all from chancers and the figure wasn't available outside of France so the - found this in my loft story won't wash! Not for a tenner, not for twenty!

Back on topic- congrats on burning some crap Jase lol
