Hi everyone,

I just realized about this faceplate on Ebay, I am newbie but to me looks nice, seems that have some pedigree, even I can see the C-scar :cool: , I would like to hear your opinions guys, thanks

They left the "C scar" but sanded down nearly every other detail!? Strange to say the least. :eek

Who is the seller. Anyone we know?

Do any of our resident experts have any insight into this mask?
Does it look real or does it look like a fanmade made to look real.

If I had one guess, and only one guess, I'd say a cleaned up recast of a TM. The C scar is the key to the TM for me.

Well, the C scar looks very specific to the TM...

Why sad?, ohh, I guess you mean because there are already people recasting TM?

Don't buy from a recaster man, it'll only encourage them to do it again... low down, scum sucking, talentless assholes that they are...

Just my opinion of course.

Cheers,

I'm not going to name names, but I bet this is connected to
somebody who has done this before. It's too calculated.
