A fake for £510

So, last weekend, I paid £510 for 'The Citadel Giant' on the Oldhammer Forum.

This was what I was offered:

Thankfully I refused to pay via Paypal Friends & Family as £510 is a lot to lose.

The item arrived today and the model was broken... LUCKILY

Because what I was sold was a counterfeit torso made from plaster, thus:

At the moment I am laughing at the surreality of it all, whilst at the same time with Paypal.

There are I am sure a few people out there who will be having a good old snigger at my expense, and I don't begrudge them that small pleasure, if it brightens their life and gives them another reason to go on living.


The seller appears to be as horrified as I, and has arranged a refund. He says (and I have no reason to doubt him) that the item was part of a bulk purchase, by his brother, some time ago.

It appears that both he and I have been taken to the cleaners by a recaster.


  1. That's awful. At least you can get your money back. Good luck with finding another.

  2. I've got to admit, that would be my worst nightmare as a seller!

    1. Yep, it's not a pretty picture, is it?


Leave your praise and vitriolic commentary here...
