Thread: 【IMPORTANT】How to identify the bootleg digivices

  1. #1

    Exclamation 【IMPORTANT】How to identify the bootleg digivices

    There were many bootleg digivices in China at the time digimon is popular.
    All of us in China have bought the fake digivices before.
    Now those fake things flow into international market, so you may get a fake one with a high price.
    I have wrote an article in China's discussion board before, to tell everybody how to identify the bootleg digivices.
    When I get on ebay today, I'm surprised that there are 3 fake Japanese D-3, and a lot of people are placing bids!
    So I try to share my article here, to help everyone find them out.

    (My English is not good, please tell me if I don't tell well. It's welcome that you share this article with other forms to let more people know.)


    Here I don't discuss those bad fakes that you know they are bootleg when you see them in your first eye.
    What I tell here is the ones that looks really like the original. You may think those are good ones if you don't have the way to check them.



    ================================================== =========
    First of all, I'll tell you what kind of digivices have fake ones that look like the original.

    Japanese Digivice (No fake)
    US Digivice (have fake, all are version 2)

    Japanese D-3 (Have fake)
    US D-3 (No fake)

    D-ark(Have fake)
    D-power(No fake)

    D-Scanner(Have fake)
    D-tector(No fake)

    ================================================== =========

    How to indentify fake digivice version 2

    All the color in version 2 could have the chance to be a fake one.
    The colors of version 2 are:
    Transparent no color body + Blue button.
    Black body + White button.
    Purple body + Yellow button.
    greenish yellow body + Purple button.
    Glow in the dark body + White button.

    It's easy to tell which digivice ver2 is a fake one.
    Please see the wire on the back.

    The left one is original, the wire goes from top to below.
    The right one is fake. The wire stays at the lower part.

    About the content of the fake digivice ver2:
    1. You can't push the button to beat a digimon in the mini card game.
    2. When you walk 50,000 steps, there is no auto - Mega evolution action.

    ================================================== =========

    How to indentify fake Japanese D-3

    All the color could have a fake ones.

    Colors and content in the original D-3:

    Version2: Hawkmon and Tailmon
    Version2 Colors: White and Red; Blue and white.

    Version3: Armadimon and Patamon
    Version3 Colors: White and Yellow; Black and Blue.


    If you see the digimon and the color is not matching, then it is fake.
    Example: You see a V-mon in a black and blue D-3. Then that's a fake one.

    If you see a color that is not exist, then it is a fake one.

    Example: You see a White and Green color.


    *I don't know whether there is a fake limited version 1.5 or not. I have never seen a fake one of it.


    Details that could tell the fake one with the original one:
    1. Air wire. (The black stick near the screen)
    Original: There is a little dot on the top of the air wire.
    Fake: No dot on it.

    2. The sticker on the clip.
    Original: Different colors have different numbers.
    Fake: All the number is the same. Writes: 77279.

    Thank you very much for this article. I will be a great help to collectors, or just people who want to get back a toy from their childhood.

    Rather than merge this with the other thread, I think I'm going to sticky it along side it to act as a guide. Good post.

    D-Cybers have no fake.

    *Exactly there is... But.. I think it is unnecessary to point it out..
    You wouldn't think this is an original one, and the content inside is no connect with the original one.
