I would avoid them like the plague Tim, I contcated them anout the fake baggies in that pack & he came back to me the spiel - I have seen all kinds of figures in all kinds of bags etc etc :?

I have also just been in talks with a nice guy from TIG regarding baggies & he bought one from that seller & sadly I had to give him the awful news that its a fake :| surprise surprise, guess what the seller said to him when he contacted them & it was a re seal in the wrong baggie type & a messy one at that, the seller even went as far as to say QUOTE " I am sure it is possible the tape may have lifted at 1 time? " - what a tool!
If there's a bright spark to the center of the galaxy, we're on the planet it's furthest from.

Although Coo is correct, the pant colour is definitely wrong on a dark brown hair luke. Either a head swap or a painted one ...

I might be shooting myself in the foot with this one but something isn't right about this, and apart from the cleanness of the card edges I cant see any obvious tells on card and bubble, but the figure isn't right - appreciate any other views as this would be a grail of mine if i'm off the mark.

The big flags are these:

The card back is a 41b which is unrecorded with Han Hoth - a flag but I've found other unrecorded cards

A bigger issue is the figure is a 31 back release and has wear on one foot. The dark eye paint and hex belt buckle stopped after 31/32 backs.

Is that a black rebel blaster too?

The cardback is also weird - looks like text at the base is in black boxes, with greyer print around v- anyone seen that on a legit card.

If it is fake its very good - if the figure and gun were right I'd be buying it

No problem Andy, the double sided tape commonly used on reproductions isn't always that easy to spot though, good thing he took that picture, really shot himself in the foot. Those chubby little stems on the repro bubbles always jump right out at me too. Good spot mate.
