Presumably with the Han Hoth, once you got it in hand there would be a lot more indicators that it was repro, i.e. stuff like the print, card stock, bubble etc etc.

It did seem frighteningly good to me too.
WANTED: The following speederbikes. I would like them boxed but open and complete. I need:

Pbp stickered bilogo
Danish stickered bilogo
Special offer uk bilogo
And any other funky stickers or speeder bike oddities.

I have no reason to suspect the seller is dodgy but the seal looks a little off (could just be lifting) and there appears to be a piece of plastic behind the figure?

the card look´s o.k to me, the little piece of plastic is to protect the figure not to being glued to the freshly printed cardback or to risk paint apps from the card to the figure.
You can see these plastic strips on a lot of cards, mostly these which came with a vinyl cape

So just browsing through ebay and see a custom carded yak face and wondered why so cheap with an original figure as i presumed so i went to description and figures fake too.
So then i started scanning all the cheap rare loose action figures like blue snaggletooth and couldnt brlieve how many identical fakes are out there, its getting out of hand, so many people must have fake figures without knowing it as I would not have known if not for description.

Big mistake, it could have been a Poch pbp, you know the debate on tig. And I missed him. Would have paid double the price for him.

If he sold to someone on here, please pm.
