After eBay’s recent investment in Funko, we (and others) thought that the spate of fake Pop! figures would change on the e-commerce site.
So when we checked earlier today for more Price Points for the 1950’s Elvis, eBay showed 24. Of them, 20 featured the King in his original packaging.
And all of them (ALL 20 OF THEM!) were fake. And of the four out-of-box figures, only one was genuine. Someone even paid $400 for a fake out-of-box Elvis!
That is fake percentage of 96 percent! New collectors would never even know, as it seems they all come from China and sell for about $30-40.
eBay is really doing the community a disservice. And I did not even mention all the Fake Stickers eBay earns money on.
This is a problem for all honest collectors, Funko and elsewhere, and needs to be stopped.
