Nice post!

So basically, if morty is caucasian, he's real, and if he's latin, he's fake 👍🏻- 👎🏼

It'll be interesting to see if Steve has any insight into the actual paper or printing process as well

Here’s a few quick pics of the single staple copy I have next to a ruler.

I’ll get more accurate measuremts posted a bit later. It’s pretty clear I should have held it down with something so it laid completely flat.

Kap is right though, mine was also very close to an even 5” x 3” when I held it down, I just could take the pic when I did that.

Cool - It looks like the right size. Is that the real one or fake one? Can't tell from the lighting source.

@kaptainmyke

That’s the real copy. My bad for the rainy day natural light pics.

Got 2 more copies in today, both were shipped from same seller. Both have 2 staples.

Sellers "marusechkaus" and "michaekoshlele-0" are bootleggers, and are the same person because both orders came media mail from one package.

Both fake.

@kaptainmyke

Your article was great. I don't see how informing other collectors about spotting a fake can be a bad thing.

It's not. That guy is probably the guy who bought the $850 fake one on October 10

I heard back from Madman Entertainment. I asked them a few basic questions and this was the response I received.

“Thanks for contacting Madman Entertainment.

Unfortunately this was a limited edition item for the first production of Season 1 in Australia. It is no longer available and we do not have any other comics in this series.

You may be able to get a second hand copy on an online retailer such as ebay?

Sorry we can't be of further assistance.

Kind regards,

Liz”

So it appears from the response that they printed them themselves to be distributed, but that’s not yet been confirmed. I sent a follow up email with a few more detailed questions in regards to who printed them, how many were printed, were they inside the cases or a loose bonus, etc.

I’ll let everyone know when I hear back from them.

I believe they received a handful of copies from the original run, and they stamped them with a machine on the back with the madman logo. I could be wrong but I need to see one in hand to make that deduction.

Collector IntoAnother private msg quote post Address this user
Well, atleast they responded promptly.

Ugh.

“Hi,

Sorry we can't give out that information. It was a limited release and is no longer available. We have no plans to reproduce these at this stage.

Sorry to be vague, but that's all we can say on the matter.

Kind regards,

Liz”

Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

As you as you can see, it’s appears from her response that they reproduced them themselves.

Whether they were given permission to print them has yet to be determined, but I’m not sure I can determine that. It also may be a mystery for some time on how many they made/distributed.

Yes, notice how she said "we have no plans to reproduce these at this stage".

Also, if you look at the image of the Madmen version in the eBay listing, Morty's skin tone on the cover of the Madmen version is closer to that of the bootleg version.

Collector IntoAnother private msg quote post Address this user
Yeah, her wording isn’t exactly comforting.

I sent a follow up email that is a bit more blunt. I see no reason why they would refuse to disclose that information unless something was off.

great write up by the way.
your article said,
" This set has Jerry’s feet displayed.Other copies Jerry’s feet is missing.Those are fakes too, because originally that layer had a bluray sticker going across his feet.This particular cover on the slip case however shows the couch walking off the ground as well"
