ROTJ Hoth Han MOC Foot holes (1 missing/ blocked)

Postby Chac96 » Sat Jun 23, 2018 11:00 am

I have just recieved this MOC but noticed that one of the foot holes on the figure is blocked and just wondered if this is common moulding error. Just wondered if it could be something to worry about e.g reproduction. Even though I’m not aware of Kenner reproduction cards but just wanted a opinion from a more experienced collector.

Ahhh thanks a lot, I didn’t think it would be a problem. I assume it has to effect on value?

imo no

if anything you may have a liitle bit more audience from paint/error focus collectors.

but the value would still be the same error or not on this one as its not visually seen on display

nice piece :D
