Vlix repro figure

Postby Mr. Tie » Wed Apr 12, 2017 7:11 pm

Does any one have some experience with this Ebay seller? He's from Singapore and has a very nice Vlix repro figure for sale. Don't misunderstand me: I do not like any repro stuff used for selling as the real thing. But this figure is marked as repro and a genuine Vlix figure is hard to find and very, very expensive.

I know some of the guys on here and other forums don't really like the things this guy produces but for the most part I don't mind them. Everything is marked reproduction or something somewhere and when it's dealing with items that are super rare or unavailable like Vlix or the prototype Boba Fett that he was recently selling, I don't think anyone in the market for these would be fooled by them being passed off as original (anyone willing to drop thousands on something like Vlix must have done some homework on it and if they haven't then I think they're to blame if they get caught out).

Like I said there is definitely a divide with people into this guys products but I've dealt with him a few times and never had a problem with him and he always ships quickly and supplies a solid product. Don't flame me though guys!!

I have one of his Vlix mocs... didn't buy it from him directly but I did get a set of his RF Fetts a few years back.. no issues there.

Vlix is well made and has 'Copia' on the leg and no peg holes so no chance of being passed off as genuine.

Ryan aka Bantha5 over on RS made some real nice ones years ago too.
Wanted - Instruction sheets and Stormtrooper cardbacks preferably....

I normally would avoid this repo stuff like the plague, but it's really appealing, and I think it would display really well.
Does anyone know what the customs charges would be to import it from Singapore?

When I've had things from this seller sent to the UK in the past there was no customs charge due to the way it was sent. I've not had anything recently sent to me in the UK so I've no idea if it's different now but as it's not coming form the US it probably has more chance of slipping under the radar. I think the seller will always try to send it out to people so they don't get caught out with additional charges (like declaring it's value at only $10).

As for the picture of the doc Vlix above I remember the seller first selling these years ago sealed and I'm not sure if he still does that as he did make up boxes for them (or you can get them loose). The colours may differ as this is an earlier one and I can't remember if he changed the mould on the later ones. Also he offers the Vlix in 2 colour ways as I think this is how they were released (or one is a prototype version). You'll have to decide which colour is for you if you do go for one.
