Is this for real?

I have never heard of this before, not that I am an expert. It looks a little fishy to me, although the bridge is real....

The RG-Gold2 is indeed an actual model, and this one looks legit, imo.

You got that kinda cash?

That is about what I paid for my puzzletop.

I guess it could be legit. I thought the birds might be a little chineesy...

Re: Is this for real?

Shipping from Thailand is a little scary, but it's almost worth taking the chance.

Not terrible, but I still dig the RG-GOLD1 more. It had gold leaf on front, back & sides and no crane decals. Once in awhile I kinda miss the one that I had.

Still...not a bad price for a GOLD2

Yeah, all over gold leaf would have been a nice touch on the GOLD2

Re: Is this for real?

I think there may be something fishy.
If you check the sellers account, it hasn't been used since 2005... I don't know why but feels a little unsafe.
