With the amount of knock offs out there, I thought that I'd create a thread for others to judge whether any pictured kubricks are legitimate or counterfeit.
I'll start it off:

I know that kubricks did a set of masked rider. Whether those are them or not I would guess they were. BHM I'm sure will be along to confirm one way or another.

I couldn't say for sure if those are fakes or not......they don't really look it though....

JCASTIC,
He's now part of government initiative to reduce the number of letters typed on computer screens and therefore reduce electricity and pollution/global warming etc.

This is also why I'm simply TBT these days.

p.s. Isn't there something in the rules about faking or mimicking another members screen name?

I'm afraid my son is in Sandy Eggo buying up the dwindling supplies of the rare FCBD blanks at some Comical Con ..

Maybe I can help? I am 99% sure that they are the real-deal Masked Rider Kubricks .....I can't be totally sure because they have there masks on mellow.gif

Very few bootleggers will go to the extreme of forging the packaging.

I just found another one. I can't really test its authenticity up front because the seller doesn't have it in its package. How about this:

I can vouch for the seller having bought from him/her many times ,in fact I'm bidding on an item from them now. I am more concerned why you are so sceptical about kubrick sellers ? Kubricks (non box-sets) are generally blind-boxed so MIB tends to go out of the window but most sellers tend to supply the opened box,it's polite wink.gif If you doubt the authenticity of any kubrick follow the guidance in the kubrick thread which when navigated will direct you to kubrick indices. In all fairness the only 'bootlegs' that regularly turn up on ebay are the 'tinned Star Wars' Starbricks which were perhaps licensed but ain't kubricks.

And please please please do yourself a favor and stay the hell away from "Dragon Ball Z Kubricks." If you buy them, then trust me when I say that you will regret it. . .

those masked riders look legit to me. they have too many pieces, the bootleg ones normally try to use less pieces, ie they would not have a mask it would have just been painted on.

All the images of the kubricks are of the genuine articles.

These are kind of weird "Kubrick-esque" figures. It might just be the perspective, but it looks like the right hands of the two on the left are very small. . .

They also look to have sculpted faces.
