Has anybody else seen the custom Yak Face's being produced by Glassman? I believe you have to paint it yourself.

I don't recall whether it was Glassman, but I have seen both painted & unpainted repro Yaks advertised on ebay UK, but not for several months (not that I've been looking). Am I right in thinking that they are unarticulated?

There's been a shed load of them in recent weeks. Unarticulated but properly painted if having a fake Yak on a shelf is your thing.

Sometimes the seller ( I think there's more than one of them but I just see them in passing ) is doing a similar line in one-piece Blue Snags.

On a repro card how difficult would it be to detect a repro Yak Face?

Have you guys read Paul's articles on the Repo Yak Face and Blue Snags? It's Part 2 if I remember.
Hope this helps? Very Happy

That's a really good question. From listing photos it is probably very hard, or impossible. Might have to verify in the flesh once it has arrived. Certainly complicates the situation ...
