The person or persons supplying originals for scanning needs to burn first IMO, no scans = no scams

I'm really fed up of sifting through this crap on eBay, search Star Wars vintage now and 50% of everything is reproduction. :x

I guess it was only a matter of time that someone would do this, always the way with anything that is worth a decent sum of money :evil:

I'm surprised it's taken this long for him to start on Popy's given that they're the easiest thing to copy. Small and simple, low production/manufacturing cost and small item to pack and post.

I see no satisfaction in 'collecting' in this manner.

Great!
I'm missing one of the two catalogues in one of my three POPYs, currently I have a purposely poor photocopy rather than a gap in my GW case... Doubt I'll trust replacing that now these exist... :cry:

Hasbro, Disney/LFL won't do anything about this? The copyright on vintage toys has already expired?

Don't panic guys.

His boxes are shit. Photocopies onto paper then glued to cardboard. You see one in hand you won't worry too much.

He is a cunt though.

Agreed, I've never seen a repro cardback or box that looks anything like an original in hand. Still a bell end for not clearly marking them as repro though.

Agree with these 2 statements. It's an art searching on ebay for 1977-85 star wars.
On and off small time collector of mainly ROTJ 77 backs, vehicles and loosies since 2000.
