Hello.

Nice find but not original IMO.

Is it possible to have pictures from the fixation holes on the sides?

Best regards

that is the best way to learn ,that way you will double check things before buying anything
and i did not make a fuss about it so he agreed on taking it back from me.
and i guess we all had on one time bought something that in the end was not as we wanted

Very true Jonas, we all learn from our mistakes, any good seller should give back the money if you can show that it is a fake.

did not ring as a bell when you tapped it
that was my mistake by forgetting it to hit it and hearing it 'ringing'
hope you guys know what i mean by ringing :oops:

I recently had the chance to "ring" an original one, I have been told that you have to hit them with a pencil or pen knife, but that is not true, if you tap it with a finger, it will ring very clearly.
OK, they are dolls, but they have kung fu grip! and weapons.
