Post links to your own or other people's Ebay auctions. It is fine to discuss live auctions, but DO NOT post links to closed auctions for at least 7 days after the listing ends. See sales forum rules for details.

Hmmm...

I'm inclined to ask if he's at it again? Ebay seller vintageplanetarium (he of the many vinyl Jawa auctions and short-lived Palitoy carded vinyl Jawa auction which he pulled after a day viewtopic.php?f=5&t=35297), now has an abundance of vintage original weapons for sale in a single lot, including 19x Princess Leia blasters, 10x Jawa blasters, multiple lightsabers, etc., etc., and the bidding starts at a whopping £799.99:

The listing describes these as a 'Huge lot of vintage Star Wars weapons/accessories, 100% original and float-tested. Near-mint to gem-mint condition C8-C9. Sabers and blasters worth up to £45 - £80 individually.'

The problem is, at the top centre of the first image there's this unsightly item:

And if that fake is present, it certainly makes me wonder about the authenticity of the rest of them! :roll:

Most of them look fake to me.

Yes, I must admit I was rather suspicious of the Leia and Jawa blasters and all of the sabers (so most of the value here then), but without having them in hand, I couldn't be sure. The blue Lando General blaster however....!

Wow what a scumbag, this guy is notorious for being an arsehole.

The common cheap stuff like the rifles look genuine I think, but every single one of those blasters is fake as fuck, and the sabers I think they're fake too but I just can't see enough detail with the low image resolution.

But everything here apart from the rifles all look like the new 2017 repros.
