Who is this? He’s on Ebay, says cloth body. I just can’t seem to place him
Liam by Bonnie Brown?
Yesssss ! I knew I’d find the answer here. Now he hasn’t been copied has he?
Oh no! They got liam too?
Nothing would surprise me - I don’t know for sure as I haven’t looked but I am pretty sure he would have been copied
Well the bottle and pacifier that comes with him looks like the ones that come with the stolen sculpt dolls.
Yes knockoff Liam.
Better safe than sorry - if in doubt don’t buy - check for other red flags
Price too cheap - country of origin - sellers feedback etc
Fake Liam, but wow…it looks really bad, like plastic. I feel so sad for Bonnie Brown…she’s an amazing sculptor and most of
Her sculpts has been stolen I feel like there’s less chance of counterfeit kits happening if the kits were limited editions
If the description says vinyl silicone or silicone vinyl it’s a knock off. There is no such thing. Under $75 is a red flag, too.
Liam’s BLANK kit is $140
That’s what I was thinking.
He had a $60 BIN and already sold. Guess the seller won’t be answering my questions lol
Fake reborns just have that look to them, they look greasy most of the time and it seems that the factory uses one color palette for each doll, this kind of peachy/salmon colored blushing and the ‘rooting’ is also awful too but… what can we expect for a factory painted reborn doll that was illegally reproduced. I’ve seen that lots of Bonnie Brown’s sculpts have been illegally reproduced and now the market is just full of these fake copies that are being sold as ‘cheap silicone vinyl reborn baby dolls’ when actually, they are totally illegal and are poorly made too.
I keep seeing lots of fake Saskia’s for sale, a lot of them are used and most of the time they are sold because people see the prototype photos that the scammers use to lure you in and then they receive a nasty factory painted doll that they no longer want
I’ve never seen a Liam thus far but they’re awfully painted and don’t even look like reborn dolls, they just look like an awful copy lol
This stuff infuriates me, using photos of prototypes to lure people in to buying your awful stolen dolls really, really infuriates me.
Blank stolen Liam kits available on AliExpress! Don’t go there for anything - please don’t support them.
I will never buy anything at all from AliExpress, AliBaba etc because pretty much everything is illegally copied on both of those sites
I will continue to support the sculptors by buying kits directly from the sculptors or from an authentic legitimate kit dealer. Its worth spending nearly $100 or over $100 for a kit that is authentic
Thank you @RainbowArtDolls - and I 100% agree and do the same - I just made a separate topic about that company before I saw your response - should have waited…sorry everyone
Fake knock off Liam unfortunately. Blanks are now being sold on AliExpress, Amazon,eBay, wish etc of Liam, Saskia,April, the twins, BB Joseph, and many more
