Watch Out for FFVII AC Knock-off figures

They are being made in Hong Kong. Sephiroth and Vincent Valentine figures in particular are currently being counterfeited because of AC and Dirge of Cerberus. They are currently flooding eBay and the sellers may or may not know that they are selling knock-offs. Things to spot for:

1. Box Art is the original Japanese (but the scan is slightly a lower res) release rather than the "red bar Caution" U.S. release by Diamond Comics distribution.

2. Plastic quality is lower: hard and brittle and the main body parts are not made from durable PVC.

3. Paint applications are sufficient but sloppier than the real ones.

4. Figures are assembled poorly and you can spot it while the figure is still in the box. The Vincent Valentine KO figure that I just received had an arm and leg falling off.

5. The figure stand is different: the metal clamp that goes around the figure's waist is not included, and the figure is to be held by the stand using a hole and peg system.
