FAKES..

Postby plantman » Tue Apr 28, 2009 12:54 pm

Could this be a sticky to report fakes and questionable items for us all to give our opinion on?


another vinyl jawa listed with ORIGINAL cape:

Yeah I agree, it is the wrong colour.

I think the tolotoys one is similar in colour to this, but the fit doesnt look right.

Nice topic, but may i suggest not to (only) post to the auction itself, but copy the pic a paste it in the thread itself. Once the auction is ended and 90 days are exceeded the pic is gone and the comments and help for new members may be useless.

Now about the Jawa, i saw the auction and someone has explained the seller this is a fake one, and he changed the auction to not original cape wich is a good thing, becuase it is FAKE.

The telltales are first off al the colour wich allready is a give away that's it is not an original kenner VC jawa, and also not that the seller mentions that the cape has NO cross hatch pattern (wich both kenner and toltoys should have). Besides the crosshatch pattern there are other give aways that this is not toltoys Vc jawa, first off al as mentioned before it doesn't fit properly and what most don't know is that the corners on the front off a toltoys VC jawa's cape end in small pointing tips if you understand what i mean, while the kenner one goes straight down makes a corner off 90 degrees.

Cheers.
