(I know there is a KO toys thread, but this is a more specific question. by all means merge away if you think it doesn't deserve it's own thread.) I don't mean the usual KO dinobots/cassettes/g1 or the non-licensed products like heero's, i mean limited run forgeries of the very expensive figures being produced specifically to fool the big-money collectors. For example, if you had the skill and access to the equipment, surely it's not outside the realms of possibility to turn fairly ordinary minty skorponoks into black zarak with some dye, custom moulded components, a few stickers and a bit of careful tinkering. I've heard about chromed fake lucky draws going for big cash, and clearly this sort of thing happens - where there is money to be made you'll find people willing to exploit it - but the murky world of serious collecting is a closed book to me. Are there guys turning out a couple of Fort Expensive a month? is buying these expensive toys as risky as it seems to noobz like myself?
