With all of the news recently on Alibaba.com going public, I decided to check out the site. If you don't know about Alibaba.com at this point, it is basically the Amazon of Chinese wholesale. If you can think of it, there are 20 factories in China that will make a knock-off for you and ship to you in large quantities. I was board so I decided to search for Star Wars figures.. I almost threw up!
Polyresin Wholesale Action Figure Custom Made Star War Figuren - Buy Star War Figuren,Action Figurine,War Figurine Product on Alibaba.com
For several years now I've come across an HUGE number in figures that just didn't "feel" right. I'm talking the plastic quality was off just a tad or the colors ( especially the skin tone being too pink ) didn't seem right.
Who in their right mind can buy with confidence these days?
Take some time and run your own search on the site and let me know your thoughts. It ain't just repro accessories we need to worry about folks!
