Buying Figures and Determining Originals to Fakes: Part 2 of FAQ on Figure Collecting5:00 AM
|Preview: My figure wishlist XD|
- One way to determine is taking a picture of the figure under typical indoor lighting without the flash. If the light reflects on the figure, it is surely a fake. And obviously, if not, it is authentic.
- If the figure’s texture is not matte like the skin, hair and clothes, then it is a fake.
- You should also look at the stand and when it says “Made in China” and nothing else, it is a fake.
- When it comes to certain parts of the figure, if the texture is not fine (like there is a small plastic protruding), it is a fake.
- A figure is fake too when the paint is not good at all, compared to the real one.
- Fake figures are sometimes missing the official stickers on the box, so check if there is a sticker or not.
