So I finally got Quetzalcoatl. And I still have doubts of it's legitimacy. It has some excess metal on the sides, the MW on the underside says 1 instead of 4 like the one in Beywiki, WF is somewhat wobbly though not to the point that it can fall off and the placement of the face print is somewhat different from what Beywiki shows. What does everyone think?

Okay so I know this is kinda random but I'm gonna put it here because it fits the title:
So these: "Real Fakes" exist and are made from molds.
If the molds are exact to the original, (and if the manufacturer uses the same concentration of materials to make the parts,) does that mean they could be viable for tournament play at some point in the future?
(I know it sounds dumb but this would change everything)

That's a fake but it's still good by the reviews I see on the product.

I know this is a little bit too late, but try placing it on a left launcher and see if it works.
I'm interested to know if anyone has ever had a positive experience with AliExpress or are all the Beys there fake?
I ordered from a seller there who actually looks pretty legit. He sells the typical fakes for a few dollars, but with no TT logo on them. But he also has higher priced BBs in his store that look legit in the pics and only those have TT mentioned and the logo visible.

This is the Mirage Fafnir I ordered there.

At the same time I also ordered a Mirage Fafnir from MallOfToys and as soon as they both arrive I will compare them closely.


UPDATE
I compared the Mirage Fafnir from AliExpress (Luke Store) with the one from MallOfToys.
The one from AliExpress is definitely genuine as well.
Here are a few pictures for comparison.
Staff, please rename this thread to "Is this Beyblade fake? Thread" and unpin it and repin it to the top. Flight hasn't visited in 5 years and the original guide is outdated. New bladers have a lot of trouble finding this thread.

Yeah I honestly never even knew this thread existed. Granted I never really had to search for it because I’m irl friends with geetster99 and he was able to show me early on the difference to real and fake beys. So I digress.
Hi, have anybody buy at Bonnie's Store from Aliexpress? They have some Beyblades form Metal Fusion/Fight that I want with good prices and the boxes look like takara tomy, but I'm wondering if they are mid fakes.

Look like midfakes to me, they use the same pictures as other midfake counterfeit sellers.

I saw that I bought some beys some time ago from this shop, how can identify if they are midfake? I don't have the boxes.

I take some photos: https://ibb.co/tbt5xTK   https://ibb.co/D4rffrb

Yeah all three in the pictures look fake to me. The prices on the store are a bad sign, but with these three specifically you can tell:
- Galaxy Pegasis' Right Rubber Flat (R2F) tip should have a sprue mark on the center. Only midfakes have a completely smooth R2F.
- Earth Aquila (Eagle) has miscut holes on the Earth Fusion Wheel and the sticker quality (especially on the Face Bolt) looks poor.
- Samurai Pegasis midfakes have much darker clear red plastic instead of the pinkish red of the official ones.
In general all three (and all other midfakes) also have very rough looking plastic.
I'm planing on getting a Beyblade Lot since I don't have many Beys, can someone make sure this is real for me, please?

It looks so genuine from my perspective but I can't say it confidently if it is real or not

I know that late answer doesn't really help, but want to comment something else.

In general, I do trust Japanese online sellers, even with little feedback (started business recently).
Beyblades are inexpensive in Japan, so they have no reason to mess up with fakes.
Guess they can't even obtain them in local stores.


About the lot itself - As Dawn said, it's hard to tell surely by picture, but looks real. I managed to see tri-wing and flat screws on other items' photos.
Other items he sells don't have any suspicious 'signs'. When I'm not sure, always check other products. If any fake noticed, leaving right away.
So I've been waiting ages for rb vol 26 with prime shipping to be on amazon and I found this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B08BZTBWM...op?ie=UTF8
But if you look at the reviews they're all slash valkyrie, I've bought from the seller before and I got what I ordered but still

It should be the Random Booster you are looking for. I've seen sometimes that they switch out the product for a different one and the reviews stay the same. You should be able to return it if its actually Slash Valkyrie, not RB 26.

Two of these are fakes, and finding information.
Hopefully this will be a helpful guide to everyone who's either new or confused.
