Postby subzero » Sat Nov 18, 2017 12:59 pm

It looks like one of those customs that people make using the Poon fett launcher.

Wow, didn't think to look at his other items, it's a very good clean custom job someone has done on it too if it's a custom.

But why on earth is there so many bids on it?

The paint job looks amazingly accurate but I've no idea if people have been able to get a dead match for the colours for years. Maybe it's an original Fett with a custom rocket firing mechanism?

It does look very good but I'm sure anyone who has any knowledge about these rocket firing prototypes would be able to tell straight away. It is going for a lot of money but if this was the real thing the experts out there would have bumped this price right up by now .

Let's see what it ends up going for in a couple of hours.

Surly if this was a genuine rocket firing Fett, this would not be on eBay!

he relisted it so one would assume that the buyer has realised that it is probably a fake and told him to fuck off, either that or he has 2 exactly the same

What a weird one, says in the description he relisted it due to a time waster, with that much of a high bid involved you'd think he'd just send second chance offers to the next bidders instead of wasting another 10 days.... :?

Thinking about it I have a rocket Fett that looks the same as this one. I bought it years ago, a short while before hasbro released their version of this figure. It was on a sealed card back and had a die cut section on the back of the card that could be popped out so you could see the rocket firing mechanism. It may well have been a Poon job, I can't remember but I know it was before he started putting out those all blue rubbery rocket Fett's that came in a box.

I'm thinking this could be one of those sealed Fett's I have that's been opened as it was really well made and I don't think any loose ones were made like this. Just a thought but it seems so unlikely that this listed one would be for real. As a side note I have seen rocket Fett's up on eBay but they're always graded and come with a huge BIN, maybe one did get sold by mistake back in the early days of eBay but I doubt if something like that could happen now a days with the amount of people trawling through eBay every day.

I dont think it would be too hard to take the torso of one figure and parts of another to create this if you get my drift :wink:

Ian is right on this one, me too remembering the carded Fett with the die cut section. Nice one, sadly I didn't buy that one at that time... :cry:
