Good Morty Thead Redux- PLEASE Be Civil4650

COLLECTOR shrewbeer private msg quote post Address this user
These were in the PO box today. Same dark brown border, clear disks, but *feels* and looks a bit shady. The slipcovers are very good quality, I wouldnt normally think they were fake.

Im trying to get all three so I can do an unboxing of all at once. Shipping one of these good mortys off to Steve though. We shall see.

Such a stiff word. Poker player and % type gambling is something I do and am slightly profitable at, considering my low stakes level. So I popped $45 to land the infamous Good Morty comic. Probably a low % bet but hey no biggie. After all GM is the next Tec 27, right?😎



Less talking, more posting of pics.


Heh... got you... late last night (profitable!) poker session, and running around multiple errands today. Now a normal person would have instantly ripped the package open to at least see shrink wrap and production date.... that ain't me! Will do the deed when I get home this evening....

same Bat channel.....😎

Anyone with a single staple that can post a pic of the inside cover please?

There is definite ink bleed-thru on this double staple book. You can see half the black (left)and morty's black hair coming through (right). Everything else looks the same as what others have posted so far.




I need a better resolution pic of the single staple, this one is all i have. Looks like no ink bleed though.

@Kap the pics I posted are of the same book. Same spots under LED then UV light.

@Scorpion I can faaintly see what looks like bleed thru on yours as well, but it ends in a different spot in "you"




So essentially, these books are close to identical aside from the staples lol. Maybe Steve will see some difference in the paper and print.

I hate that we cant PM pictures!

@Scorpion on it's way. I put my invoice and comic inside this, just ship it just like that for Steve to open. I assure you, there IS a book inside lol

I will also put tabs on all tape in the Gemini mailer so you can re-use it for both of our books if you like. They are quite bulletproof.

Good luck to ME! (Because I know yours is real 😁)

Hello,

I’m new to these forums but have been collecting Rick and Morty stuff for a long time. I found my way here after noticing a bunch of “The Good Morty’s” being posted on Ebay. That lead me to researching the reasoning behind so many being sold, which lead me to finding out about this comic being considered the first appearance of Rick and Morty, which lead me to here. This is the information I’ve managed to put together so far regarding which versions of the comics are real vs fake and I’m hoping to expand on it. Any additional information is appreciated.

DVD/Blu-Ray Release Date - 10/7/14

Source - https://www.dvdsreleasedates.com/movies/7044/rick-and-morty

Evidence
For the videos I’ve tried my best to link to a time in the video where you can best see the single staple on the comic.

7/31/14 - Tweet from Justin Roiland’s Twitter showing “The Good Morty” with only 1 staple.
https://twitter.com/JustinRoiland/status/494947197205508096

8/1/14 - Reddit post by Justin Roiland’s assistant at the time showing only 1 staple.
https://www.reddit.com/r/rickandmorty/comments/2cafvu/the_good_morty/

10/7/14 - Unboxing video of the Blu-ray. “Comic Inside” sticker on box - only 1 staple
https://youtu.be/JqY1USBow84?t=150

10/7/14 - Picture of the Blu-ray from a Twitter user who replied to Justin Roiland’s tweet linked above.

10/22/14 - Unboxing video of the Blu-ray, showing only 1 staple.

8/1/14 - Unboxing video of the Blu-ray, “Comic Inside” sticker on box - only 1 staple

12/10/15 - Unboxing video of the DVD, showing only 1 staple.
https://youtu.be/16qhJnroBFY?t=179


My theory

“The Good Morty” that came with the original DVD/Blu-ray came with a single staple. When bootleg copies were made to make them seem more legitimate copies of “The Good Morty” were included and these were stapled twice. It might be possible that legitimate 2nd run copies of the DVD/Blu-ray also included the comic and on these it was stapled twice, but I don’t think that is very likely. I’ve yet to find anything from before 2016 that shows a copy of “The Good Morty” with 2 staples. Any additional information that anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated thanks for reading.

Thanks again,
Krazy

Have you ever had one of those anti-climatic moments in life?

Anyway here are the results of my RM#1 DVD opening.

Here's the original package:




Next we safely and very carefully slice it open:




And out pops a cool wooden spoon set.




Followed by three RM#1s:




I didn't think it was a good sign that the shrink wrap was cheap weak cellophane with "Made in Mexico" stamped on it.




There were no Good Morty mini's in any of the three DVDs. Careful inspection of the sets tell me they are original because of the very high quality. They have been opened before and re-shrink wrapped though I can't explain the "Made in Mexico" stamp.
Here are some other photos but I don't think I've added any good new info to the conversation:

Ok the post is missing some stuff so I'll just add it here for ease sake:




And here you can clearly see the cheap flimsy cellophane shrink wrap:

@Krazyflipz good stuff, thank you for posting!

I find it interesting that there is no evidence of a book coming out of a DVD purchase prior to last year. All the single staple books came out of the blue rays.

We've got a single staple Blu-ray book and a double stable one from this year shipped out to the pros at CBCS, so stay tuned for those results 👍🏻

PS scroll down the main forum page, there is a locked thread that has tons of good Morty evidence in it.

@shrewbeer Thanks for the appreciation man!

I didn't include this in my original post because you can't see the staples, but I found this video from 10/12/14 it does show the comic coming from a DVD case and confirm that the original DVD case were white, at least this person's was white.

And there it is. The back top border of the DVD slipcovers we are pulling double-staple books out of is brown. Everything on the box store shelves now and this kid's, is tan. Also, if it were double stapled we should see a staple right here, although the quality is shiite.

@shrewbeer I also sent a message to that kid to see if he still has the DVD/comic and asked if he could send me pictures of it if he did.

I don't know if this helps or has been posted before (I haven't read all the posts here), but I found this after a search.

Posted 9/7/15 - single staple tract, DVD release

https://imgur.com/a/07Amg#1onplT9






Also, there is a theory that the work is based on this tract.





The above is all from this 9/8/15 Reddit post...

@Ditch_Fahrenheit

Ya that helps, that's more evidence showing only a single staple before 2016. Good find!
Post 101 • IP   flag post
COLLECTOR shrewbeer private msg quote post Address this user
@Ditch_Fahrenheit yep, that helps.

We continue to see evidence that single stapled books are legit, and have seen zero evidence that double-stapled ones are as well.

We may not be able to directly prove the doubles false, except by lack of any evidence they are real.

Great posts! Keep it up! S_S I think you have modern post 2016 dvd sets, white, no comic inside. The guy on ebay is a search engine string baiter saying "comic inside" tho if so

Just realized RI comicon is in only 2.5 weeks.

I can put all three variants with their respective cases/slipcovers in front of Roiland and see if he has an opinion as well. If any are fake I'll ask him to sign and write fake on it before handing it to CBCS lol

I think we are all missing the elephant in the room. I hate to break it everyone, but while worrying about how many staples, shades of red, DVD cases, slipcovers, shrinkwraps and so on, it looks to me like all of the Good Morty's are fake. Just look, none of the ones I've seen anywhere have the "J.T.C." in the right lower corner of the front cover! OMG!!!
