This is the gallery for the most convincing fakes to reach the secondary market, where the faked item came close to fooling a panel of experts. Look at each of these items closely and see if you can tell how it was created. Always be careful when buying rare items. For some rarities (e.g. rocket firing Boba Fett, red caped Bib Fortuna, and Revenge of the Jedi advance poster), there are more fakes on market than the real thing.
