Hi everyone....
I bought this a while ago and always wondered if this was a real Initial D product or a cheap knock-off.
And is there a way to know?
And to the Moderators...... Thanks for all your hard work.
p.s. sorry for the bad photos

I'm not aware of those models having issues with counterfeits/bootlegs. Hopefully someone else might be of more help. Also, I moved this thread to the more appropriate subforum.

Nobody has any reason to counterfeit these things, as they were already cheaply made by Jada. Unless you bought this from a Chinese or HK seller on Ebay, I wouldn't worry about it.

Looks legit. I have what you have as well on pic 3 and pic 4... slightly damaged, but yeah, it's original. I have never seen counterfeits of these things.
