help with luke moc ?

Postby Pomse2001 » Thu Apr 13, 2017 5:21 pm

Hi guys does this moc look real and allright to you guys ?

I just want to be sure if it is real before I buy it and that it is not a repro or great reseal.

I may be wrong but something doesn't look right to me? Is the hanger hole too large? I'm no expert, don't have one. Maybe try and find a picture of a real one or wait for others to comment.

Not 100% the same moc I found on evil bay, the front is different. To the left on the top of the moc the is 2 lines with no.

The one on evilbay only have 1 line.

Found some other with 2 lines on google but again not the same card variants :?

Maybe you are right, I have not found one moc yet on google that look like that one.

Seller told me it have been at the loft for more than 10 years and now he is selling his collection :?

Hey Lars, I would not buy this.
To me the card looks like a re-print. If you get close, you need to see small dots from the so called "autotypical screen" used in industrial Offset-Printing. This looks like a good inkjet or laserprint.
Everything on this card does not look right: the colour, the material ...

Thanks mate for the help, I am glad that you can see all this because I can't see it :oops:

But some warning lamps did light when I could not find a cardback or a moc on google that look the same. So my thoughts was fake or fucking rare :lol:

The colours on the front of the card look faded and overall image isn't sharp and clear.
One could argue that of course its old and may be faded, but in tgis case the bubble is oddly crystal clear.
If you compare the front image of this card to the other two posted then there is a difference.
Also the hangar tab stops at the "A" on the last two cards. This is the same as my own Palitoy card.
I'm no expert on cards though, but it doesn't look right, IMO.

I'll send you a photo of my Luke Hoth cardback tomorrow, mate.
Need some natural light.

The Luke posted by the OP is 100% fake repro. The other two further down are real.

I wouldn't buy it either, colours on the back are wrong.
