Not only have we been seeing a slew of shady new classic Kenner reproductions being offered as authentic on eBay, this auction features a reproduction mint on card Boba Fett in a reproduction AFA case! That's right, a reproduction AFA case! Thankfully, this seller clearly describes the piece as a reproduction, but there is little doubt we all need to keep our eyes peeled and listen to our instincts when buying vintage items online more than ever.

Click the thumbnails above to have a closer look at the upcoming Ree Yees, Revenge Of The Sith armored Darth Vader, and the newly christened Jabba's Skiff Guard (firmly known by a couple of EU names that are most likely officially irrelevant).
