Hi all, I've just discovered this fantastic series, so far got jabba, darth rotj, darth nh, stormtrooper orange, anakin orange, obi wan orange, luke and han stormtrooper disguise, chewy orange and sandtropper blue.
I'm looking mainly for the original trilogy characters, not to bothered if there boxed, must be genuine and complete.

My main source for buying the black series figures has been fleebay as nearly all the figures I'm interested in are not available from everyday shops.
I've very concerned about bootleg figures and from what I have read fleebay is bootleg city.
I've researched how to spot a fake, and the information has saved me from wasting my money, but I've found purchasing joblots of figures a cheaper way to get the higher priced figures.
Has anyone any advice how to spot a bootleg from a photo, boxed or loose?
Thanks

Www.staractionfigures.co.uk is the best place to purchase these figures, and for a reasonable price. The orange line Sandtrooper is currently available for a bargain £20. If you were looking for a genuine Darth Maul, then Niche gift shop on eBay had them cheap but not sure of the price now. If you don't mind damaged boxes then I think it was cheap.

There are a few fakes out there, mainly Darth Maul and Boba Fett. If it's cheap and from China or Taiwan it's fake.

There is also a black series collectors group on Facebook which is a great source of information and where you can pick up the older to figures for a reasonable price from fellow members.

Thanks for the info and website hankser, the sandtropper is one of the few figures from the orange line that I'm after!
