Incidentally @Robstyley I agree that some collector mentality in groups over Repro is tantamount to bullying, and is all the more aggravating when half of them couldn’t recognise their arse from their elbow when it comes to Repro, whilst hiding behind their keyboards and memes, bragging about Repro bonfires when it would be much more useful to keep for comparisons in the future, and insisting that the safest place to buy and avoid Repro is said group, when it regularly gets sold in there.

But I revisited this RB video and its so one sided and full of crap it’s laughable. As @UKS points out it misrepresents opinion and statements all over the shop.

And don’t get me started on the posing naked with Star Wars... :lol:

TIG is out of date now unfortunately. Look out for the new Variant Villains website later this year, which will have up-to-date information on COOs, weapon variants and reproductions, and the start of figure focus guides. A shit load of work is going into that.
Will look forward to this, good stuff :D

I’m not watching that for an hour to see what is shocking, but if it boils down to a CONVICTED CRIMINAL with a track record of producing COUNTERFEIT GOODS getting pissy on YouTube about being called out and ostracised for selling fakes that are designed to deceive collectors then I’m surprised to see people here defending him.

Hypothetical scenario- let's say there's a new Star Wars collector book full of digital scans of every card back... could you argue that is aiding reproduction? Where do all those scans come from? Where do the digital copies end up afterwards?! (A bit off-topic sorry!)
