what brought this to my attention was the thing on ebay about all figs from china being fake but everyone on here seemed to agree that this was nonsense. can anybody elaborate on this.

Also i did see a small head han solo made in china 1995(as stated) and i dont think without having it in my hand i could tell the difference. this really worried me. what would stop someone taking the coo off etc?
Are they out there and how many? iv see the blue snags on ebay and they are obvious and described as what they are.

any thoughts?

There are fakes from China that look real in poor pictures, but in person I hear you can easily tell they are fakes. I don't think they are articulated. The small head Han with 1995 is from the POTF2 1995 original figure box set. It is real, but is modern with modern peg holes in his feet.
