Hello fans & collectors !
This is my first post here after doing a lot of reading and enjoying the incredible amount of information that has been assembled on the site and in those forums.
I'm a very new collector from France and I've been reading a lot about fakes lately. So I'd like to know the state of the repros for loose figurines :
- I understand repro weapons, capes & accessories is a huge issue.
- I also understand some highly sought (and thus pricey) figures are often targeted by repro makers (blue snaggletooth or Vinyl Jawa, for example)
- I have read about repro Stormtroopers bearing the original 1977 copyright date and COO, although they seem rather easy to ID.
But I'd like to know if *all* vintage figures are being copied at the moment, and thus I'd need to check the authenticity of every single figure I'll come across no matter what, or if as for today only the most sought after figures above are being reproed ? For example have you guys already seen repro Emperor's Royal Guard, or repros nien nunb ? Or others ?
Thanks for your help !
Also I've not found an introduction section in the forums, but if there's one I'll be happy to introduce myself, of course
