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.

Rogue Five: I wish the movie would let you know when there's an end credits scene. I just saw Kong: Skull Island and apparently there was a teaser of another famous monster. Last three movies I saw had nothing after the credits. Just my luck the one time I walk out...

Rogue Five: Why am I telling you guys this? I don't know. I guess I'm a little annoyed. I feel like I didn't get my money's worth lol

Rogue Five: And I never remember to check the internets to confirm

Rogue Five: So to sum up. If you're going to go see Skull Island, make sure to stay after the credits
