Thargoil i hope you are able to come to an amicable agreement with the guy that sold you that R2 with repro saber. Oh and very nice fish tank setup you got going there.

thx for the tank compliment Smile
No matter the value now, it's just that I've specifically asked if it was original and i hate dishonesty, but who doesn't.
I'll probably let it go, I'm totally not in the mood for e-bay discussions and i didn't pay that much.

Now i just need a loose droid factory R2 and i can start 'upgrade hunting'.

I used to be like that, mainly because I'm lazy, but know I think, no I paid for that and it's not what I paid for so I want my money back bitch!

Fight it chief, even if it's for a few quid, your in the right here, and that saber definately looks fake. If you email the guy, sometime's people are real nice and cooperative, you never know. Plus if they do turn out to be a jerk, that just inspires you to go further. Also, if it does go to a case (assuming it through ebay) just make sure you repeatidly point out to ebay that it was 'fraudulant' and what not, they don't like fake shit and will probably swing in your favour.

I got sold a Fett with a buffed off COO and it ended in a case, never got a refund of the seller, but ebay refunded me the full price Very Happy

Congrats on the Blue Star MOC, John! What a gem! cheers
Also hoping AFA will compensate you for the mistake they made.

TG: Sorry to hear about the repro saber. I agree with the General, just confront the seller and see how he reacts. If he is honest, he will give you a refund.

Mike: I always like the little treasures you find in the open wild. Great ESB Yoda MOC! cheers

Chris: Lovely European Chewie! Looking forward seeing the Palitoy Vader! Very Happy

Hey

Nice pick ups everyone.

A New unusual proof card for my focus. ESB C-3po Switcheroo proof with Some wording differences on the front and back compared to the released version.

It must be around half the thickness of Moc's so it is quite fragile compared to my other Proof cards. Now I know why its so hard to pick up a nice mint released one without damage.

Royal Mail have just stitched me!, I've been waiting for a parcel from Brazil (I even have the tracking no/postage slip), it took nearly 2 months to get to the UK according to the lack of shipping updates, then finally in the UK royal mail sent it back to the sender so it's now back in Brazil !!!!!

No shortage of good stuff posted by everyone in this thread.... Dr Dengar and the LL video, Walkie continuing to acquire really nice loose variants and John posting the Uzay Blue Stars... Shocked

I think that R2 saber is a repro, I would certainly take action. I agree with John on value.

Found these three guys at a garage sale this morning, yes a garage sale... Couldn't leave these sitting in the wild and for the price it was a no brainer. Not even two minutes after we agreed on a price, another two arrived and immediately hawked what I was holding in my hands. Needless to say, it was me walking back to my car with a shopping bag and Saturday morning smile thanks to a matter of minutes. Cool

These are MOC numbers 30, 31 and 32 in my collection that have been locally rescued from the wild, 2 years actively searching.

Great Find there Mike :clap:

General, sorry to hear that Royal mail screwed up your Ledy treasure. Sad
I admire, that despite your anger and frustration, you still haven't lost your sense of humor, by presenting us an empty blue picture. + earned for keeping your British humor under these harsh conditions! Very Happy

BTW: Sofar I have only lost two packages. But both were sent by Royal Mail (w/o track and trace, I admit).
One was a Luke Bespin in China baggie. Hmmm, I see a pattern....

Somewhere there must be a place full of lost Bespin Luke's like that planet of lost left socks in Ren & Stimpy Razz

I have a bunch of new things I wanted to post up, but I need to get the pictures taken and/or organized.

But, these lil' fellas appeared on my doorstep this morning, courtesy of Joseph_Y, so I had to post up!
My first bootlegs!
