That really is an amazing MOC, shame there's a slight bubble crush in the stem but someone could get a real bargain here. I love how shiny the cape is as well on this example, this must add some extra value to it as you tend to only see this on repro ones
I was going to say nice shine, shame the card hasn't the same. And the colour of the cape... what a match.
At the end of the day if someone's got that much to spend on a MOC then surely they'll know what to look out for, unless of course, it's a shilling situation.
I thought I'd make the seller's day by sending them this message (complete with American spellings, just in case proper English is too confusing for him
In the spirit of trying to do you a favor, let me be as clear as I can. You know as well as I do that this is a reproduction card, and NOT a vintage original. The winning bidder is going to be furious with you when you send him this cheap and nasty fake, so why don't you do the honorable thing and cancel the listing before you have to pay them their money back and you receive well-earned negative feedback?
The hole punch is wrong, the card print quality is wrong, the footer is wrong, the blister is wrong, the gun is repro and therefore wrong, and above all, the 'vinyl' cape is laughably poor and of course therefore, very, VERY wrong. Make no mistake, this card is a FAKE.
And in the unlikely event that you don't believe what I have just said, perhaps you will remember this email once you hear back from the extremely unhappy winning bidder of this auction.
