    That sucks for whoever bought that without a header card or omake.

    I’m sure the gallery HxS is selling out of could help authenticate toys before folk fall for a bootleg. Even if a decent one.

    This definitely belongs in the Daily Grumble thread. ;)

    I am not saying I disagree, but the saddest part is probably actually that there was more than one bidder to take it up to this level with some logical questions around it.

    Granted I don't have any clue what Zheng charges for a KO, but does this now mean that even bootlegs are being used to flip for quick cash? (and what has this come to?) Let me sales to you bro my original rarez Air Jardons for excellent price of just $6k.

    Highly doubtful, you could message him and I’m sure he’d make the same toy for a few hundred. I’m guessing it’s the case of people thinking it’s legit or rolling the dice. Probably easier for non English speaking overseas bidders to make the mistake. I guess people can buy a bootleg and turn around and sell it with a disclaimer they don’t know if it’s real or know what it is. But that makes them a dickhead and I’m sure they’ll be quickly ousted. But if you see that in a listing just have the brains to not bid.

    That's exactly what I was postulating could be the case here (or, fair enough, with whomever this ebay seller 'bought' it from)

    So I’m curious, there’s a bemon and two flying freaks up on eBay. None of them are confirmed real by the seller.
    Fake or real?

    To the best of my knowledge I’ve yet to see any of Bemon or Headlock’s toys be bootlegged. If it’s the root beer clear 2HBeast I’d say it’s real. That color has popped up multiple times on YJA and it’s not out of the realm of possibility it made its way to a US collector.

    I thought so, there was something about those paint jobs that just didn’t sit right for me…
