after staring at them, the only thing that caught my attention was the staff. Good to know.
interested to see what else they find.


Now if only they would hurry up and fake the rest of the DX chases.  ;D

Yeah, I looked long and hard at these and just can't see anything different outside of the black coloring being a big darker and maybe more glossy.  If they really are post-production fakes, someone did a hell of a job matching up the paint and printing.

i'm not convinced that they are fakes, i'm guessing someone is stealing them off the line and holding on to them to sell later.

Think on this...,
the bags are the same thickness and texture as the DX S4 bags, which were completely different from all other series.
They are dead on though. These look and feel from the factory.

Are you talking about the Logray?  I don't see anything active or completed for that cheap.   ???

He has them listed as Teebo and Bearbricks. I came upon them accidentially..

Guaranteed it's a fake, but for $6 I don't really give a ****

I see that exclusion also includes Mexico and North America as well, so Canada and Mexico are double covered in the negative there (does the double negative mean you should be shipped to?).  It's funny that the seller doesn't realize the US is included in NA as well.

So I picked up one of these 'Logray fakes' for $14 shipped. I wasn't really interested initially. It wasn't because I was scared of the quality, my expectations were more than met after reports of guys here buying them, but at that price I thought why not? I could have got any even better price had I been more vigilant.

My question to you all is does any one have a reasonable explanation/theory about these? I'm quite well aware of their supposed history as per this topic but what I don't quite understand why these are being offloaded for such a cheap price and why now years after the fact? If you went to the trouble of making Logray copies good enough to possibly fool collectors why haven't the counterfeiters released them sporadically and at 'chase brick' prices? Our gain I guess.

If you went to the trouble of tooling these and the paint and everything you're probably selling them at a loss letting them go for less than $20. I can't imagine they were made on a mass scale but rather a small high cost per unit run.

Now if anyone wants to make some real money please counterfeit at AT-ST driver and in high volume ;D Logray was hardly at the top of my most desirable chase list.  ;)

So I received the "fake Logray" in the mail the other day and due to the price I paid, can almost guarantee it's a fake, but how do I know for sure?  I obviously don't have a real Logray to compare, but someone must have both and did a detailed comparison between the two.

Since I'm in the market for a new Series 1 Fett (regular), I get updates from the bay.  Got this one today.
