It's a tuff one to judge, certainly looks a bit off. The photos of the bubble aren't great and it looks like a reseal to me.

Yeah that's got repro written all over it, you can see the sticky tape underneath the bubble and the card is shiny on both sides.

There's one bidder who's constantly putting in small bid increments which looks very suspicious too.

looking at the seal it looks like you can see tape holding it on. I'm saying it's a reseal and I would message the seller to see what they say if you're interested in it.

There look to be a few bids on it so I'm surprised no ones noticed the tape.

Looking at it again you may well be right about it all being repro, the footer also doesn't look quite right and I get the feeling someone's not going to be happy when this arrives.

The fact that the seller has only 3 feedback is always a warning sign and if this is repro then it does look to have been made to look damaged to help it pass for vintage. Maybe it is an innocent mistake but it's hard to think that now a days.

Hopefully the buyer at least spots it and opens a case to send it back, that is the problem these days you never know what people are willing to do to scam people out of a few quid, but it can also be easy to jump the gun because of that problem and assume an honest seller is scamming. Iv'e messaged several sellers recently to tell them their item was fake and I can tell by their response they really did believe it was genuine and then revised their listing.

This is 100% fake. It has a Europunch for starters, it's clearly been inkjet printed and the bubble is held on with double-sided tape! What a lot of bullshit the conman selling this is spouting!... From the 1980's my ass! And he 'came across this figure inside my old bedroom at parents house'... Well perhaps, but if he did come across the figure, I'm willing to bet it was loose at the time!
