|Return of the Jedi Fake Red Caped Bib Fortuna MOC|
|This is one of the most convincing faked carded figures to have ever
reached the secondary market since it managed to fool several knowledgeable
collectors. Ever since a Bib Fortuna with red cape appeared in Kenner
literature, collectors have been claiming these were spotted in package
as a production item. To make the situation worse, most of the SW price
guides list this as a production item. The reality is that no red
caped Bib Fortunas have turned up from production runs. There are a couple
of these in Kenner baggies that came from Kenner employees.
This particular carded version was formed by opening a carded Bib Fortuna and resealing the bubble. Although the picture doesn't convey it, upon close examination, it is astonishing how well this was carried out. It is surprisingly easy to create a fake carded figure much to my dismay.
