Golden Kite Order Replicas and Fakes

Recommended Posts

I see the seller has added comments at the bottom that he/she was given comments that it is a fake!! Do you know how much they paid for it on Yahoo! Japan?

Sold for $150!

Pure madness ...

Wow, this is as great post, but makes someone like me VERY nervous and want to stay away from collecting these. Is there a way to show "real vs fake" 5th, 6th, 7th side by side together? Makes me wish I kept the two examples I had purchased 8 years ago....

Yikes! Really appreciate the comparisons Nick. Shows (to me at least) that it is getting difficult to tell the fakes from the genuine ones without really good pics.
