Dude, we all have the same leads and you can still bid against me.  Truth be told, since I already own a perfect set, I will probably not bid as much and I will be easy to outbid.  But if i see something go for cheap, Iíll go for it.

Also, I donít think a lot of people on this forum are into SW, judging from the lack of replies.  So itís just you and me :)

Well done, T. I knew that last Empire B1 wouldnít elude you for long. I have 7 out of 12, but missing all the New Hope ones and not hopeful of being able to afford them! I have them in B2 instead.

I may or may not have a set of these.............and I say that in all seriousness because I honestly don't know.  I got a bunch of em when I was living in Japan.  Unfortunately, I believe the one I am missing is the Ohrai, which is the best of the set.

Return of the Jedi Yamakatsu Starfall Counterfeits

Many wonder if or when they would appear, turns out they are here now.

The attached images are part of something I have been putting together for quite some time to help identify not only Star Wars posters in general but counterfeits from originals. Rather than wait until I finish the site I thought this one should be shared now since it is such a large purchase and grail piece for so many collectors.

The fake is extremely convincing from images, nearly undetectable really. When they are compared in hand though the differences are clear. So far the ones I have found or heard of have come out of Japan via online auctions there. The one used for comparison here is from a seller using the ID atomo_disney.

The paper is too white and has a slightly higher gloss on the front than the original and the back which should be more of a matt is the same gloss as the front.
The printing is made from either a very high res photo or a full size scan. You can tell that the one is printed using an inkjet printer vs the offset printing used on the original. The printing is also slightly fuzzy leading me to think this is a photograph and not a scan.

I will add more details in time but wanted to get some of the information out now so others can watch out for them.

Are they putting the commerce sticker on the fakes?  IMO, that is how it came, and collectors should be after examples that retain it.

I have not seen any with it so far.  The majority of originals that I have had or seen do not have one either.

I really don't understand this.  The undated version, maybe, but there are so many copies of this one out there.  I own 4, rolled and mint, so many other collectors do too, Bruce and HA have them for sale every week it seems, but they still command $2k.  No logic here.

I guess mine is the exception, which makes sense in a way.  Anyone who was planning on keeping one in 'collectible' condition removed that thing right away.

Some concept poster art (for quads) by Eddie Paul from the upcoming Feref book were shared in this article on Little White Lies . Here is the Kickstarter for the book: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/feref/feref-unseen

I forgot to post this one.  I added it to my collection of B1s because it was there and the design/title was different.  It's not rare, it's a video poster of some sort, but it's a B1 and I want to have all the B1s that are not connected to tie-ins.  That's where the madness ends hahaha

#1 I don't think they are (another BS scheme) and #2, even if they were, WHAT'S THE POINT???  People will never meet her and end up with some ink on a piece of paper.  Oh, but maybe, maybe, she touched the pen the ink came from.  Yeah, that's worth 500Ä for sure hahaha!

Autographs without meeting the celebrity are 1000% worthless, imo.  One, they were not signed to you (so what's the point) and two, you'll never know (NEVER EVER) if the autograph is real.  But that doesn't seem to deter some people for spending ridiculous amount of money on said autographs (case in point).  I once knew this man who was Cary Grant's assistant at some point.  He was old then and is for sure dead now.  But he did tell me that he signed all of Cary Grant's celebrity pictures while working for him.  There were so many and it was part of his job.  Those autographs now come with a CoA ( crying) and sell for $$$.
