Counterfeit items are nothing new in society. Everything from fake designer handbags to ripped off movies can be found on the street and secondary markets if you look hard enough. Toys too, but all so often the knock-offs are easily seen for what they are; for example a Transformer figure retitled a "Transmorpher" and containing a cheap, generic robot toy that looks nothing like Optimus Prime. Hot Toys, however, appears to be up against a more clever counterfeiter where neither name or product is drastically changed. There are differences though in quality, not to mention Hot Toys' stellar reputation. Hot Toys has sent out the following statement regarding newly discovered cases of fake X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie figures. Read on...
