    Marion it is possible to make boxes on the same brown paper. I am not talking home made counterfeits.

    Marion... That is a good way to spot lazy counterfeits yes. I'm talking about people who are going to spend 10 thousand dollars to earn 50 thousand. Imagine a case find of Wonder Woman figures from a warehouse in Australia. Or another Canadian warehouse find of carded Batman figures. Goblin... Iron Man... I don't know if anyone has tried fakery on this level before but I have to think it's going to happen eventually.

    If someone is crafty enough to fool a longtime mego collector he should be using that talent of forging highend-wines, paintings or other more profit antiques.

    Anyways be careful and use your eye and gut instinct over the word of a seller. Things like a carded Goblin or WW were short packed to begin with no way would a find of a dozen would ever surface. I also believe the 1980 Tomland universal monsters are just as rare. You would have to have walked into the right store on one find day to have ever found one back then.
