So I picked up one of these 'Logray fakes' for $14 shipped. I wasn't really interested initially. It wasn't because I was scared of the quality, my expectations were more than met after reports of guys here buying them, but at that price I thought why not? I could have got any even better price had I been more vigilant.
My question to you all is does any one have a reasonable explanation/theory about these? I'm quite well aware of their supposed history as per this topic but what I don't quite understand why these are being offloaded for such a cheap price and why now years after the fact? If you went to the trouble of making Logray copies good enough to possibly fool collectors why haven't the counterfeiters released them sporadically and at 'chase brick' prices? Our gain I guess.
If you went to the trouble of tooling these and the paint and everything you're probably selling them at a loss letting them go for less than $20. I can't imagine they were made on a mass scale but rather a small high cost per unit run.
Now if anyone wants to make some real money please counterfeit at AT-ST driver and in high volume
Logray was hardly at the top of my most desirable chase list.
