Fake Forgeworld Models...
 
So i just got a bunch of DKOK models and i suspect the seller is casting them him self in large number..... IS there anyway to tell 100% if a model is real or not? (Also does Forgeworld like to be told who is mass selling fake models?)

GW encourage informing about illegal casting.

As to telling if they're fake are they made out of a different resin? Is there a large number of faults and defects? Is the detail consistently poor? Does the seller regularly sell large batches of forgeworld models?

Huge batch's and some of the backpacks are almost plastic like Resin (a few different shades as well...)

yeah they are fake, if its got anything to do with Russia or China they are fake, also you might want to be careful who knows what they are made from.
I would contact FW about it, Russia and China are getting alot better with IP related issues because of high profile cases like the fake apple stores and such so its not out of the realm of possibilities for GW to go after them.

I just cut some of the Spur parts in half and there pretty much plastic so i don't exactly think there harmful lol, Its just kind of a kick in the nut sack.

Generally if it is too good to be true, then it isn't true.

Dob the bastards in, if they are legit then they have nothing to worry about.
