This is a 100% fake barcode because:

  • The name doesn’t match
  • Other figures are being shown in the titles
  • And the pictures don’t match either.

Hence, there is no way for this barcode to be authentic.

Too difficult? Let our team of expert Bearbrick authenticators take a look at your clothes:
