I'm all for truth in advertising, so it troubles me to no end when I see deceptive listings.
This is the start of a current auction listing.
Here is a Mego T2 8" body Batman. He is complete, in outstanding HIGH GRADE condition and ALL ORIGINAL vintage Mego with the ONLY exceptions being his boots, cape, gloves, belt and chest emblem, guaranteed. HIGH quality vintage Mego figure here, from head to toe. This is the the late 1970's version Mego produced with the dark blue cowl.
I think it would be far more honest to say ALL REPRODUCTION with the ONLY exceptions being Head, Body and outfit. The phrase "High Quality vintage" is laughable when a figure is more than 50% reproduction. Let's not even go into the described problems of what little vintage Mego there is, the bodysuit. High quality, indeed.
I don't think any member here would have the gall to list this figure in the marketplace and call it vintage "from head to toe" knowing that all the hard to find parts of the figure are reproductions.
Judge for yourselves from this auction, and others from the same seller.

There's nothing wrong with selling figures with reproduction parts,
but please, don't hide it behind hyperbole and superlatives that just aren't true.
