I completely understand why you are buying the fake stormys John and am grateful that you do these things to help protect the rest of us . Sure , none of us want to promote the reproductions out there , but , the only way to educate ourselves is if "someone" takes one for the team Cool

I hated waking up to read the dispute between Josh and June but was really glad to see it work itself out in the end What a Face

all we are saying is give ...

Well I got them in. I have to say that I am impressed with them as figures, but not remotely worried about them being passed off as legit if you know your stuff.

The easiest thing to point out is the COO, it's just the single line GMFGI 1977. However is dead center of the leg in a straight line down from the black paint app on the hip. No real figure has that COO in the center. Therefore it's a dead giveaway.

The next thing to point out are the hands. The thumbs come to almost a point, like the clone figs (or an anime drawing) and when you look at it, it seems like a modern hand on a vintage figure. Another difference.

The blasters are so fake it's not hard to spot. They're extremely light and have a glossy finish. Easy to pic out.

Hope this helps, I'll get picture later.
