Counterfeit/Fake stuff

Did you have any experience that you bought something very like, but after purchased the item then you figured out that it was a counterfeit? What did you feel? Well, I do not know what you feel, but for me I am hella mad. I bought two fake figures in ebay and I did not know them were fake until I received the figured two days later.

Two counterfeit Death Note figures.

As you can see in the red circle some defects there. It had a lot of places were painted out of order and the edges of each shaps were not smooth(may be you can not see it in the picture if you were not a pro); the box which holds the figure was painted with low quality painter. Also since the head is Fuck big it can not stand still and will falling off. I have to DIY a stand to keeps it up. What a fucking fun experience of making that stand.

I do not know about other itmes, but for the figures you need be careful with two things while you thinking of buying.

First, you need to check for the laser sticker on the front box or back box. Like the one below.

Second, if you buy things in ebay, do not let the Feedback Ratings fools you. Because most people don’t wanna harm their own feedback and just put positive feedback to sellers while they know those sellers sold them counterfeit. Like the two sellers below. These two sellers sell out counterfeit but still got hella high points. So before you buy something, ask before you buy.

Here is a website that can helps you search for only the negative feedbacks that the seller got since ebay did not have that function (what a way to give buyers more troubles). http://www.toolhaus.org/

So be smart when next time you buy stuff on ebay.

  2. The reason why I knew the Ryuku figure was fake was that the quailty of the figure was very bad. for example, it had a lot of places were painted out of order, the edges of each shaps were not smooth, and the box which holds the figure was painted with low quality painter.
