The description is a little confusing but basically if I understood it right the seller is selling a resin casting of his Luke Hero which itself he claims is a casting made by ILM from a mold of the actual prop. He says he'll even provide a certificate of authenticity. Seems sketchy but I suppose it's a possibility that his piece is cast from the actual prop. His name (I'm guessing) is on the first picture in the listing. Do any of you know him, maybe from RPF?
Even assuming it is legit, I'm not so sure a second generation casting would still retain the accuracy of the original mold.
Just curious what you guys think about it.

Think of it like this, if it really was what he says, he would sell it at a specialist sci-fi Auction, not ebay. If you watch pawn stars, how many times has rick called in a specialist to verify something that someone claims to be real and then been told it's a fake or forgery, why can't he name the ILM employee? If it's got a certificate what's the problem? One other thing is look into any of these being given to public or sold and if you find some with pictures of the certificate compare them to his. Find out exactly how many they made and sold.
Basically do your homework carefully for this sort of thing.
Just to show how easy it is.

lkstarkiller: I can't believe it, usps delivered my Roman mk1 to someone else. I really hope he insures his packages for the full price. I can't afford to lose $400

scarecrow: That happened to me over Thanksgiving and my neighbor brought it over. You still might get it.

lkstarkiller: I really hope so. It said it was delivered on the 12th though and I have been home the last two days. You figure if someone else got it they would have dropped it off to me today.

scarecrow: My neighbor was out of town and it sat on his doorstep for five days. I thought for sure it was stolen.

Rogue Five: This has happened to me before and coincidentally (or maybe not?) it was also a Roman's MK1 I was expecting. Tracking showed it as delivered but it wasn't. I decided to wait another day before contacting the post office and sure enough it arrived.

Rogue Five: It's happened a couple of times with Amazon too where tracking says "delivered" but the package shows up the next day.

lkstarkiller: It doesn't, it just says delivered front porch december 12th

scarecrow: Call the local post office and they can do something call a geo trace. That allows them to pinpoint the address it was delivered to.

lkstarkiller: I'll have to do it in the morning since its 3:40 am. I probably won't sleep at all so I will go when they open.

Rogue Five: I think it'll be in your mailbox tomorrow but still best to make the PO aware of the situation right away in case your package was indeed lost. Really though, this happens more often than you think. It'll be there tomorrow.
