Goofus puts his Master Replicas Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode IV Weathered Lightsaber Replica up on eBay with only one image and next to no description in hopes to get someone to spend about 18 times its actual value. Meanwhile no less than three Gallants are offering collectors the exact same same item for a more realistic price, with piles of pictures and nice, wordy descriptions.

Buying this poster is ECONOMY PROOF! We can't get enough of this eBay seller. Even if the statement was true (which, clearly, it isn't), how could you trust the authenticity of a movie poster being listed at $85,000.00? If you think this is anything less than the total king of the TRAs we want to know. Follow the link above to check it out then let us know how totally ridiculous this auction is.

First off, let it be known that we are huge fans of Christian Waggoner's work. There is absolutely nothing ridiculous about his art in any way, shape, or form. The same thing can't be said about this auction for his prints, even if they are handsomely framed. We've been watching this auction forever and it isn't moving. While it is understandable to have a price in mind, we're curious what sort of action this auction would see if there was a make an offer option...

Even if we think the Buy It Now is too much by a third, the unproduced Star Wars: Micro Collection Gamorrean Guard sculpt checks off all the boxes on the Is It A Cool Classic Kenner Collectible? check list. If your pockets are deep enough, rest easy knowing that the seller is well respected and the Make Offer option is available...

We got a bit of a giggle when we scanned through the images in the prototype 12-inch Collector Series Luke Skywalker action figure auction. Judging by the text on the paperwork offered up to illustrate provenance, this piece was meant to be returned to Hasbro and may very well have not been. In our eyes, that would still make it Hasbro's property. Regardless, despite the TRA-level starting bid, this is an interesting piece to check out.

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.
