So it is written, so it shall be done.
This was actually brought up over at RS. Carded first-shot Boba Fett?
This seller had his auction bid on for $5000. then relisted it for $2500. He said that he was not sure if the buyer for $5000. would come through. Now, IMHO if this thing was real, why relist it cheaper?
This has never been carded in this way. The card is way to clean & the bubble is wrong. Interesting notes on the toysrgus archive:Carded Toy Fair Sample
There are not to many Rocket Fetts out there ethier:Rocket Fett L-Slot VersionRocket Fett J-Slot Version
Not to mention that he has sold this fake prior:"J-SLOT" BOBA FETT PROTOTYPE
The buyer even posted positive feedback. He thinks he got the real deal.
He even sold this piece of garbage:BOBA FETT** FIRST SHOT/PAINT TEST**
Cheaps tags added to the figure & not to mention also that the photo of the figures back is the same as the one on the archive & the withe dust marks are in the same spot:J-Slot Rocket Firing Boba Fett First Shot
Now this is one nice Rocket Fett:
Only thing about it is, I own this figure. It is Fake!
Its a custom made by Bantha5 on RS. I too can take this figure & make a card & glue a bubble on it & try to pass it off as real & print my own Certificate of Authenticity to go with it.
If the seller says the Rocket Fett on auction is real. then why not have Tom Derby at Cloud City Collectibles take a look at it & authenticate it.
Heck, I could even make a card & bubble & try to pass this custom figure I have.
It all comes down to, check & know your vintage stuff. Ask on the forums that are out there for help. Another great place to look is the toysrgus archive
for anything that you are interested in. Read, look at photo's, ask questions & learn. I know I have learnt alot in the past few years.
I hope this will explain it a little better.
