Whoops.
Sorry about that.
Is there an auction thread available anywhere?
KN has one so I thought maybe it would be OK here.

Sorry again

Advertising/posting personal ebay auctions is not allowed here at anytime or anyplace, sorry.  It is a site-wide policy that goes for Kubrick, Hasbro, GG, etc.

This thread was to be used for pointing out ebay Kubrick scams, pic stealers, fakes, bad sellers, etc.

I'm a clown.
Should have paid closer attention.

Thanks

That being said, these are not legitimate EP1 Kubricks, correct?

Correct.  They were made by Kamiru and are knock-offs/bootlegs.  They made a series of box sets from the OT movies and a few prequel sets as well...

Here is an example of how much better the actual Kubricks are compared to the Boots:

I have seen this oddity on the bay before, more of a knock off I think (plush). I don't know what to call it, maybe another member might know.




I also seen this Lego Kubrick Darth Vader Trooper car on the bay which resembles the above.





Now this Original Fake KAWS DARTH VADER Companion is cool but not $400. plus cool.

I don't know what the deal is, but suddenly there are 3 ebay auctions for the 3rd box set of figures or for loose snow troopers, and none of them come with the box or accessories. The sellers are reputable enough, but I wonder where these snowtrooper-bricks are coming from, all missing their guns  :-\

I think these were bought from someones collections & may have lost the weapons.

That's funny because I also saw those auctions and was wondering the same thing.  I'll still bet that the snowtrooper goes over $40 even without the weapon.
