    Why would you think it's fake?

    I used my mental powers to detect that your seaspray is a knockoff. Sorry bub.

    Your pics crop out many of the signs used to tell if it's a KO. Even so, given the peg hold on yours is centered instead of off-center toward the figure, yours is definitely a counterfeit.

    Hope you didn't pay too much for it.

    Packaging look's legit, but if it is indeed a bootleg as Valkysas it is, I've got a question.
    The points on the back of the package, do they count for something if they come off a bootlegged item?

    Actually it's the packaging that looks least legit and gives away that it's fake. Hasbro doesn't accept the points anymore (or do they for something?), so it really doesn't matter.

    no more pics are needed. the colors for the instructions are more vivid on the bootleg, and the hole for the peg is centered. that's absolute proof it's fake.

    EDIT: well, there's a pic of the front now, and the lack of stickers and the off-color plastic is a dead giveaway too.

    Oh I know the points don't do anything now. But if they did have those knock-offs back then. Would the points have worked? Would they have been able to tell the difference between their own legit points, and the KO points?
    Obviously, now it doesn't matter, but back when maybe?

    Assuming Hasbro couldn't tell the difference, it would probably be the same as the Subway card fiasco. People would've counterfeited and cheated so much to get stuff they would've discontinued it.

    You seem awfully curious about this theoretical scenario...you sure you don't have a time machine hidden away somewhere and are just itching to try this out? :D

    bootleg, could tell right off for the hole-punch in the center of the top of the card, real cards had the hole-punched offset
