Is this Light-Up Spirit of Yoda legit?

Postby Nasha » Tue Jan 24, 2017 2:06 pm

Brought this guy 2nd hand, in used condition. However upon inspection of the baseplate, the build quality is terrible for a Limited Edition, and the lack of precision with the serial number set off alarm bells. I managed to find one other picture of this item's base plate, and it looked of similar quality, but it's serial was much neater.

Can anyone offer some thoughts, or does someone have one they bought boxed to compare?

So, after browsing round the forums, i stumbled across Rebelscum.com and found the item there.

This confuses matters slightly more... It appears to have the same poor build quality, but it looks like the one in the photo has a leather base, no feet. It does state it's a promo item, so it may not be the actual product.

The mystery thickens! Keen to see a pic off someone with a boxed one of these!

The Edition numbers were hand painted, so won't be neat.. Due to high edition numbers on a lot of GG stuff, it wouldn't have been just one person painting the numbers on... Hence some are neater than others.

Yours is legit, so no need to worry there.. and yes, the one on RS was a promo version, hence the lack of a few details.
Wanted - Instruction sheets and Stormtrooper cardbacks preferably....
