I read that the Be@rbricks are not copied as much... That is a sweet collection The black Resting Place and mono Passing through are my favs other than the 5yrl.

You read incorrectly.

Every bootleg can be identified by the right person, be it KAWS or Be@rbrick.

Do not but until you know it's legit. The amount of cats I hear about buying, and then making sure it's real baffles me. Also, do not assume the pictures listed are for the item being sold. Ax for specific pictures proving the toy is in hand. If the seller can't do that, move on.

Happy to help with any other questions.

No wonder there are so many fakes when you can just buy them this easily from China http://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?cat ... hText=kaws

It makes it hard to trust anything on the second hand market these days.
