Just a little heads up that there is a custom blue snaggletooth being sold on ebay as original, with a buy it now. Hopefully no one will be caught out.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/330900752144?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fsch%2FTV-Movies-Video-Games-%2F75708%2Fi.html%3F_sop%3D10%26_nkw%3D330900752144%26LH_PrefLoc%3D2%26_rdc%3D1

The obvious tells are colour (wrong blue), hands (red snaggletooth hands), head (red snaggletooth head). Mad

Looks like the seller pulled the auction, so you can now see what offers he had. He declined offers of $150, $120 and $2. Hopefully he did the right thing and didn't sell it on a deal off ebay!

Thanks for posting this. The colour and head are very obvious. I'm going to send you a pm with a question.

I've seen a few of these blue snags in recent months (on eBay & fairs), some have even been mounted on custom re-cards. Fortunately the quality of the figures is poor, so if new collectors do a bit of research they should avoid being ripped off! Having said that, there has recently been a number of people paying silly prices for burgundy bibs declared as custom. I guess there really is one born every minute. Rolling Eyes

Good pick up jedi and walkie, its always very interesting to see whats going on out there in regards to fakes, those resin legs are hillarious, this is why these watch out forums are so good for the community, the fake snag is very obvious but to a newby it might not be in his excitement to press the button and buy, cheers guys.
