It's been interesting reading about all of these suspected fake baggies that seem to originate from one particular seller. On reading the complete thread I've come to realise that I nearly committed £150 for a baggie Boba Fett figure listed by Jeff on ebay. The email exchange I had with him back in July of last year mentioned that he had 25 of these particular sealed figures from a job lot from the States (seems to be a bit of a common theme). I did feel at the time that something didn't seem to sit right, so decided not to pursue it any further. But maybe the Fett's were legit...

In light of the thread content it seems to have been the best thing I could of done!
It's a real shame as this situation has clearly blackened the hobby for many collectors. I do hope that full refunds will be honoured in full to all items identified as fake and traced back to this particular source.

I'll continue to follow the thread in the hope that all is resolved swiftly for fellow collectors.
If it's a Fett I'm interested.... :wink:

if that's the case then it's as bad or worse than credit card fraud.
