I bought several off him in the 90's / 00's. I probably also agreed how good they were. Little did we know.

I can't imagine thanking someone for a lovely MOC and joking they it's so good it's like you made it yourself. Then following it with a great many exclamation marks.


I wondered exactly the same if it was a sarcastic comment, the amount of exclamation marks makes it seem that way.

Amazing if it is just an innocent comment though.


You're validation has tipped my scales and I'm really erring towards the idea that the poster thought that Toni's endless stream of MOCs with all-new bubble combinations was suspicious.

I'm reminded of those clips from years ago of comedians alluding to Jimmy Saville being a C but, having no proof, could only make a cheeky dig about it. But a lot less serious, duh! But if Toni's lurking again; yes, someone on the internet has just found an obscure comparison that can be drawn between yourself and Jimmy fucking Saville now!

If you use the search bar on this site you can find all his posts when he was a member, I think it’s TOY-TONI and funny reading his post about it not being true

To the best of my knowledge everything he is selling now is legit, just a shady past you have to reconcile when giving him money now I suppose. Many won't ever give him a penny, others will though. Your own conscience is your own conscience, I wouldn't want to influence that and despite strong feelings either way I don't think others should either.


A couple of Luke telescoping sabers were 90s fakes he used in his 'MOCs', rough texture ( TIG had them listed as legit- has been rectified)

I think I had a couple of mocs off Toni back in the 90s but even then I remember thinking there was something slightly off-putting about his ads in Model and Collectors Mart that I couldn't quite put my finger on. Probably something to do with the fact he had seemingly limitless supplies of the same figures...

Yes. I know hindsite is a wonderful thing but, in retrospect, he was hiding in plain sight.

I think I've got one Toni, and people more learned than I disagree. But I was certainly conned by the recent ( and i know lesser ) floating repro weapons fraud and, again looking back, I thought 'these are different' but I went along with it.

Every type I had an odd thought about are now being sold in lots with the description ' they're known repro but they pass the basic tests.... get em while they're here '.
