Just a little heads up for anyone thinking about this ebay auction Dark Boots Bespin Luke The saber is claimed to be real, but it's not, it's a cast yellow plastic repro (V3 Repro from my pics on the TIG homepage).
 
I sent this link to a friend who I knew was after one, and explained that the saber was fake, he has since been in touch with him and the seller is insisting it's real, wether he just simply doesn't know or is out to decieve is any ones guess, But it is FAKE so be careful.

The hilt is wrong- you'd think he could compare it to the graded Luke Jedi(s) he has.

The 'Ledy' Bib staff is NOT Ledy....

The size of the whole is the key  tongue  Between V1 & V4 there is not much in it. In the hand it's easier to tell, but wrong colour, no EPM.....

If you edit a listing to add a 'Please Read this is fake speech' why not remove the bit about it being genuine as well, seems odd No

I am not 100% sure since I don't normally list auctions and need to update things, but I think that if you have at least one bid or a best offer pending that you cannot modify the original description and can only add to it. That would make sense so you as a buyer/bidder don't win something only to read that the desciption is completely different and you are potentially screwed. Again, I am not sure, but that may be why.

cheers!
Very Happy
