PostSubject: Fake Stormtroopers??   Fake Stormtroopers?? I_icon_minitimeThu May 02, 2013 6:03 pm

So in the "Kenner Babe is a Man" thread. It got mentioned about Stromtrooper fakes. I made a quick inquiry about these fake troopers. But my question got lost in the middle of the war that started in that thread. Something about "My dad is bigger and meaner than your dad." or something. Anyway are there other fake stormies out there now besides the Poon ones that caused such a stir a couple of years ago? I'm out of the loop on this stuff and I don't visit any other SW sites besides TIG anymore and am just curious.

oh yeah - totally forgot about the thread here Embarassed Its much better and more informative than the RS thread - the RS thread is mostly just more of the same old tired BS about "who's dad is bigger" What a Face

Thanks James. I never check the "Watch Out" section so missed the update. The RS thread is page after page of a pissing contest among the usual suspects. Now that I got that answered I'll go read some comics.

I love I have my own trolls on other forums. It's awesome. I love it even more when I hear they have been stung by reproductions. Like reading Pete Gowdy thought his knock off cheap shit Transformers were official reissues. Funny stuff indeed. Some of these guys need to get stung. Preferably with a bus taking them out.

Yes there is more than one style of repro stormtrooper.
Contrary to popular belief i dont think the first lot have anything to do with Mark Poon, he has denied it and i believe him, mark would have done a better effort with the packaging of the first lot that people are blaming him on, yes he had some for sale but i just dont think they where his.

The first lot had a flat spot on the torso where the arms attached, the second lot doesnt.

IMO both are poor repros, with this second lot (crazy brand) being miles off the mark for somebody that has an eye for detail.

I detailed a few of the many differences in the kennerman thread, i'll do it later in here when i have the time, cheers

No need for name calling bro! Pete is a cool cat, so stop trying to stir shit up everywhere you go. If you want to comment on the repro troopers then fine. Other than that just shut your trap. kissass


Ok so as far as these repro troopers go they suck point blank and whoever bought these should burn em! I myself would not buy these even to compare them. I would never support this crap. Anyway to each their own.

That's laughable coming from you ain't it? You only have to read your comments on SWFUK to see how much of a shit stirrer you are. So before you call the kettle black..have a look in the mirror next time you fucken mong. Twisted Evil

Cmon guys, let's not stir this pot. Don't make me come up there indy

Josh - I'm asking as a friend , please knock it off. I know you can't go onto SWFUK to reply but please just ignore it. I don't want this back and forth. It's not healthy for any parties concerned. I totally get it, but still am asking you to let it go.

June - I dig you wanting to defend your friends. It's admirable. But same as I'm telling Josh, this doesn't accompish anything.

I don't want to say you've both been warned, but you both should see where I'm coming from. Please stop and keep it on topic.


As for June's comments about not supporting them, I did order a set for the site. I do PP disputes as they consider TIG to be an authority and like it or not I need to understand these. I want to see the guns, feel the materials used,etc.. I'd prefer they just go away but I can't see that happening so better to understand than ignore.

Fuck these cunts. Don't mind rubbishing me where I can't reply back to the cunts. Pete Gowdy is a know it all little cunt. I am glad he got burnt. June is just another sheep following the flock. He can bang it up his arse.

Not to mention I didn't call him anything in my original post about it. No name calling. Just thought it was laughable.

Looks like I DO need to warn everyone.

You've both said your peace, it's over. I think you both are done by your choosing but, in case you aren't, i'll handle it.

Sending a PM to you both

Just wanted to apologize to John & imperial gunnery. And apologize to Josh_A also, as a community we need to respect each other. We all have love for the same thing and that's "Vintage Star Wars" cheers

Cheers Everyone

Peace,

Apology accepted, June and back at you buddy. I will do my best to not get roped into biting at all the crap that is being said about me on a forum I can't even reply at. I should know by now not to expect any less from some of them. I can't help if my opinion is not what others agree with. Like you say you are, I like to make my own mind up on things. Never followed the flock. That is often taken as me just trying to be difficult by some. What a Face

Just going to stop reading SWFUK threads altogether I think. Not going to give some of them the satisfaction anymore.

Please don't take this as me getting at you, but if everyone buys them for the same reasons, we are just putting money in their pockets.

I'm sure there will be people that buy them to "understand" them, but are just kidding themselves.

We are not ignoring them just because we don't buy them.

You know if you combine REPRO and BOOTLEGS it says RELEGS.

Looks like you found that out too. Well done guys, relax and keep up the good mood now. cheers


I am almost certain that most of you guys would have a great night at a bar when meeting face to face, so no real need for these fights.

Also we don't have to agree with each other. That would be so boring. Just repect the other's point of view, don't judge or try to convince.

Knowing that John is getting some, & will share his findings with TIG means that I don't need to get any, & I'm sure others will be the same. So, through John 'taking one for the team' he will be potentially reducing the numbers of these being things sold. Very Happy

I think regardless if 'vintage collectors' buy them or not..someone else will anyway. Not everyone is as die hard with their collecting, has the same ideals etc.
IMO It does make sense or, at least can't hurt, to have some in hand to check against Stormtroopers you do buy that are sold as vintage. Not that I myself have to worry about it so much., but people who do buy lots of vintage figures etc may want to. It's great to have online guides etc, don't get me wrong. But nothing can compare to having two items side by side in front of you when it comes to authenticating if something is real or not. Especially when it comes to reproduction items of high quality. I mean, you can't tell me some of you wouldn't like one of every reproduction weapon out there, instead of having to come here to check if your latest buys are indeed fake.

Cantina Patron kind of hit the nail on the head. I'm buying them so nobody else needs to worry about them getting rooked.
