He has a packaging manufacturer who prints these and they are dead on in respect to gloss, thickness and feel to original cardbacks. The bubbles are dead on as well. The only plus is that he has yet to fake the heat sealed effect to the bubbles (as far as I know).


so what is the difference visually with them? Whats the thing to look out for regards to the sealing of the bubble to the card? Is there an example picture of a Poon fake to compare to a genuine one?

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything...

Some guy here in the Netherlands was selling some interesting pieces on a local version of eBay. What got my attention was a carded vinyl cape Jawa, which in itself was odd (said website seems a bit to low-key for selling such an item). However, the fool was also trying to sell a carded version of red cape Bib Fortuna... and that probably caught up with him in the end.

All the items he listed are now gone (they were there yesterday), and he had well over a 100. Guess someone reported it or something...
Good to know there are "guardians" out there (here) who keep an eye out for these scams.

Confrontation seems to be the best approach... not in an aggressive way, just a "do you know you appear to be selllling counterfeit items?" and then take it from there depending on response. There was a guy doing that the other day with 12-back Chewies.

He managed to get $250 for one, but the other has now been removed, either because I reported him to ebay or because more than one of us here were on his case.

And if we have to believe the seller, it's "no repro".

75 usb's???...16 or 32gb?

Real lili ledy burgundy capes would not sell for less than £175, a fucked cape sold for $100 alone on another forum.

I plan to list another very soon, at the cheap end of the market value.

I wasn't planning on buying this figure... just pointing out that some scammers don't even take the effort to do some research. The whole "carded" issue is clearly a fraud, so I doubt the cape is the real deal.

Unfortunately a lot of buyers seemingly don't know either, so even the shit fakes get sold.
