Fake DT Vader
Here are his replies to my question about it being real, or possibly getting a 3rd party involved, or me paying to send it to AFA, etc.
you are more than welcome to bid-i don't do refunds,because i really don't know if its real/that's why i stated,you will reciev what is in pic.//...i am not try to pull your chain,or be decieving! I am not an expert-this is the only one i have-and ever had,so please don't bid,if u don't think it is real...i recently bidded on a rare D.T. myself,it was a ben kenobi...i was excited,but then the seller revised it and told me it might not be real...i then noticed-it didn't have pics of it seperated into 2 pieces like mine...i asked him,why not show that in a pic...his reply was-it doesn't come apart...so how can u tell mine is fake or not? i have only seen fakes on ebay,that don't seperate,like that auction,so i retracted my bid for his fake!...i can only tell u-read my auction,that's all i can tell you! don't bid-if u r not sure yourself----if no one really wins-that's cool,i will pass it to my nephew,in the bay area..no one is forced to buy-so use your own judgement...may the force be with / obi-wayne kenobi
i grew up on star wars as a kid,that why i have never dealt with so called repros..who is the seller that u think i mentioned who sells repros? i have the right to be as honest in my auctions as i see fit-don't bid if you don't want to-its your choice,i'm not stinkin' expert...this is the only 1,i have ever had in my 39 years! i hate to seem stand offish-i am just upset,that the winner had all sorta of excuses-and i gave him nearly 2 weeks,and then he send insults,after i tried to be as humanily considerate etc etc blah blah ya no what i mean dont take it any way personally just venting like a fool right now-sorry! as for afa thing-never done it/never tried.again-i live with vintage,and never repros.,so i don't have a way to compare......no one is judging you-no one-i mean no one is born perfect!
