This is a statement from Hot Toys regarding counterfeit products of the Hot Toys Wolverine Collectible Figure from the X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie
Recently, we discovered that there are counterfeit products of the Hot
Toys Wolverine Collectible Figure from the X-Men Origins: Wolverine
movie in the market which are mainly originated from Vietnam that we
are very concerned about. The genuine and counterfeit products look
similar at first glance but actually they look very different in terms
of the collectibles’ quality, details, painting technique and packing.
should pay special attention to it. Just in case we re-produce the
collectible products, we will make official announcement to let fans
If there are any queries on the suspected counterfeit products, please
don’t hesitate to contact the Hot Toys team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is the first time I've ever heard and seen an entire Hot Toys X-Men Origins: Wolverine box set replicated! Apparently there are tons of it on e-bay quite recently. A fellow visitor to my blog had written to me recently about such a figure but I didn't think it was possible until Hot Toys released their statement today. It just goes to show what people would do to make a quick buck! I guess it's still best to pre-order from authorized dealers whenever possible. This way you know that you're getting the genuine and original Hot Toys product for sure.
