The Battle For Canada is coming
The shoulder rivets are correctly painted. Isn't this indicative of a legit figure? Are there other signs suggesting it's a bootleg Viper Pilot?Originally Posted by FastFord58
it looks legit I wouldn't know unless you had it open. It could be vintage arms on a bootleg. I would have to see if that works without issue. I will try itOriginally Posted by roboticplanet
A prolifera of photos, return policy, email address posted and phone number - all good signs of a legit seller. "Cherry *****" doesn't do much for professionalism, but admittedly, that is a very nice Viper pilot. Maybe too good to be true? But maybe not. It's a shame we've got to be so sceptical about Cobras these days.
a new seller selling knock off soldiers....

For those concerned, make sure you're reporting these by scrolling to the bottom of the listing and clicking "Report this item" then fill the drop downs with
Counterfeits and copyright violations
Potential Trademark infringement
Other replica or counterfeit items
Hasbro does participate in eBay's VeRO program for IP holders and does respond to take downs when enough people report these scammers.
I have been reporting them and also been reporting them to [email protected]
Any knock offs I see being listed I submit to ebay (who does nothing) and also send the information to hasbro through the enforcement email address.
I just want to know how in the *** do people make these? This is the "2nd" time now I've heard of fake Viper pilots floating around, so now I'm even more curious.
What, ..do they have like thousands of dollars and bought the original molds from India or some other country hasbro sold them to..?
But yeah.. it makes me sick too hearing about people getting jipped like this. It's sad.. but has me curious.
