Hello everyone,
I recently purchased p/n 61200pb01 (Plo Koon head) from a Bricklink seller and
included it with a set that I sold - 8093 Plo Koon's Jedi Starfighter. The
buyer has sent me an email questioning the authenticity of the head since it's
rubber. She does not believe that it's genuine Lego brand.
Unfortunately, the Bricklink description for this part doesn't say that it's
rubber.
So... is the part that I received from the Bricklink seller "genuine Lego" even
though it's rubber? I tend to think that it is, because I've now bought
TWO of those parts, from different Bricklink sellers, and both of them were the
same rubber part. But now I have the challenge of convincing my buyer that the
part is genuine Lego, and I can't find any documentation (on Bricklink or
elsewhere) to support its genuine-ness.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

They are rubbery. It's likely legit.

I can confirm it is rubbery, not ABS.

I have sold that head a few times. It's rubber.
