So what are the things you can do at this stand? Lot of things!

- This is the stand where you can report it to us if you have seen bootlegs or questionable merchandise in the dealer room. Of course our FakeIsSad experts will check the dealer room the best we can, but even we are human and can miss out on something!
- You can take figures and merchandise with you to our stand. This may be bought from the dealer room, but of course you can also bring items from your own collection to us. Our FakeIsSad experts can perform a bootleg-check. We can also do our best to answer other questions you may have about the item, such as information about it's release, manufacturer, market value etc.
- Check out some displayed bootlegs at the stand. With multiple bootlegs we also have the real one next to it as comparison!
- Shop second hand 100% legit items!
