These are the worst quality ones in my opinion:

On too one bee the Eof Empire looks a bit ragged, but have seen similar on others.

Whether they turn out to be real or fake I’d like to thank you all for your time and efforts and illtryand get in touch with Tom Derby as suggested. If anyone could make an introductory diction I’d appreciate it.

In the age of the car nternet where everyone is snapping and snarling at each other it’s nice to see an old school community based education n politeness and helping people out.

Take it easy and any other comments are gratefully received.

This is a close up of a genuine card. Note the rounded dots that make up the image.

And this is a repro card. The image is made up of a rectangular pixels. All scanned image repros have pixels like this in the scanned image.

From the closer up images you have posted here, they look like rectangular pixels making them repro cards.

I remember that the JPEGs of card fronts available in the late 90s had exactly that issue - the photos being much lighter than the rest of the card front.

Cheers everyone... seems like the consensus is they’re not genuine... would love to know why they’ve got the unstuck glue ring on them, but guess we’ll never know:-)

Just because the upside is so high I’ll put one through UK graders to get an opinion based on holding them in there hands rather than an iPhone photo and I’ll finigh off this thread by letting everyone know the outcome just by way of a thanks.

Take it easy everybody and thanks for your help!

Yeah I agree they’re non genuine. The racetrack is wrong and if you look at the Luke Farmboy nameplate the font is wrong, amongst other things(already mentioned).

Shame it's not a new find but as all have said they are, without doubt, reproductions. The glue damage could well be from a water-based glue hence the inks have run and yet you can still feel the glue.

Always worth checking these sorts of things out though. New items are being discovered all the time so you just never know your luck.

Please don’t think that I’m making excuses, because I’m not saying these are real, but the hole punch thing was the one which didn’t make sense to me... it’s completely unnecessary given the way holes are punched, but I did see this picture in my research On swspaceclub and they’ve got them on there. No idea why because it makes it more obvious if it was misaligned.

Completely agree it doesn’t make sense.

I’m about to go to bed, but before that I’ll post a close up of the best quality one and the worst one for comparison...


They are genuine ROTJ mock ups which were from the collectiin of Tom N, who worked for Kenner. I know that as i very nearly bought the Lando Skiff one in 2003.

The cards you havd ard repro IMO. Even some of the fonts look off.

Not adding anything new but I agree that they look reproduction.

They don’t appear to have the lithographic dot grain and also fonts don’t look right.
