These dolls or doll parts cannot be posted in the Marketplace or Galleries. Inquiries on how or where to buy them will be removed.
Recast dolls are banned from Den of Angels, and it is strictly against the rules of the forum to discuss or post pictures of recast dolls, or to attempt to buy or sell them via the Marketplace. Den of Angels is resolutely anti-bootlegging and we expect members of this forum to respect our rules on this matter.
There are a number of recast sellers on eBay, most usually but not always, located in China. Please research before you make a purchase. If they use the company name, check the company site for pricing. Many of these sellers use official company photos, sometimes with the legit name watermark, sometimes edited. If the price seems low, if the doll is being sold as a generic unbranded doll, you are looking at recasts. Please ask questions of the staff on DOA, or of other bjd owners before purchasing!
