Double-Telescoping (DT) Light Saber Set
« on: December 6, 2002, 12:05 AM »
Well now it has gone too far.
There on Ebay from another seller.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1924010251&category=2475

I have a set of them from ReValveiT for my personal collection.
ReValveiT is the person who originally had the mold made & Repro's of the 3 Telescoping Sabres made. His site is here:

http://www.dtsabers.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/

There have been alot of questions about these sabers & having them fall into the wrong hands. There are no markings or lettering on the shaft. He was to mark them in away that it would show they are reproductions.

As mentioned, I have a set of them & they are the best repro's I have seen but when they do fall into wrong hands, they may or can be passed of to unsuspecting buyers that think they are original.

Just a heads up for those who have not seen them or know what there about.

Do you think if enough people sent in complaints to eBay this would stop?

Maybe so, but that is up to Ebay to do something.
It has been a heated discussion on Scum. After my post on here & Scum, there have been mixed feelings about this.
The seller clearly states they are Repro's. Ok, that's good but when they fall into the wrong hands, someone is going to get burnt. This is the thread over at Scum:

Someone should definitely let eBay know about this.  I would have done it myself but I'm not sure how you actually go about reporting.  Why don't you contact them [DSJ]?

Well now the seller has changed his discription & pricing.
Was a BIN 0f $99. now changed to a BIN of $69.

He also added this:
These are the same DT light sabers that Brianstoys sells for $79.99.

Well go figure. Compete against the market.
As for letting Ebay know about this & having somthing done,
I think I will stay away from this one. Would like to see what happens as the days go by.
