So I will admit this is an issue I'd like to learn more about. From what I understand there's a directive that license holders to produce props from Star Wars are intentionally made inaccurate or with pieces/parts/details missing or changed? What I'd like to know is when this started? Was is before or after Disney purchased LFL? What exactly is the reasoning behind this? Does this mean that everything from ICONS to MR to EFX to ANOVOS is all inaccurate? Costumes as well as props? If that's the case then isn't their advertisement of "referenced from original studio props for 100% accuracy" a false advertisement? And if so, doesn't that make them libel especially considering the amount they're charging the public and collectors? Are there any public references or articles to the whole "you cannot produce this exactly as the original" statements? I genuinely want to learn more about this from people here who have first hand experience with this issue. Thank you.
