Poon Troopers again and Everybody Loves Them

Postby tiefighterboy » Thu Apr 25, 2013 6:22 pm

I just do not understand these morons.......They hate repro weapons, cardbacks and parts but seem to dismiss the Poon troopers (Now they are in denial of that...They just look like the copies that were churned out of Marks factory) and are now embracing the Gentle Giant copies. They seem to want to call them "Bootlegs" to justify it. So I guess we can now call "Repro weapons" bootlegs and it's all good.

I hate that too Todd. A lot of these newer guys can't seem to tell the difference between repros or bootlegs no matter how you try to spell it out to them. At least, if anything, the 12" version won't have the Jumbo copyrights on them, unless that is how they reproduced them. Packaged, I'd lean more toward them being bootlegs, but once they're loose there's potential problems.

I may agree with the ones that appear to be jumbo knockk-offs...but those others ones are pure reproductions.

So are these copies of the original 12" Stormie? For a start of they look too crisp AND they are so white it's unbelievable. My genuine one looks like, well ..and old toy compared to these. Can't see anyone who knows what they are looking at being fooled :?

Minimum Order Quantity???

Anyway....I would wait till everybody had its Poons...prices on ugly old yellowed ones would fall....and then I'd buy 2000 originals for the same price.
