Smile Japanese Edition Mini LP CD on Ebay

Hi All,

Just to get some feedbacks from you guys who have bought any Foo Fighters Japanese Edition Mini LP Cd from Ebay.

Is it original or fake/counterfeit as i found that it is quite cheap? Some of the seller are from China or Hong Kong.
Wonder how they can sell it with so cheap price.

Hope to hear some advices from you guys before i buy from ebay. Thanks.

I have 'em.

They are legitimate! Not counterfeits.

Some ebayers sell (cheap) promo releases (red sticker on barcode) of Mini LP and don't mention it.

What you all have to remember is that in 1997 Hong Kong was transferred back into full Chinese sovereignty, and since then China has also taken off in many ways commercially. There now seem to be a lot of Chinese Ebay sellers travelling and others that have business links in Japan, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, Philippines and even Europe.

I have bought a number of items from these sort of sellers like no code, and they are never fakes. These folk are like anyone else, they are just trying to make money and the Ebay system is totally transparent now. Two fake sales and they will be out of business. This guy has 8045 positive feedback, yeah he's going to throw that away on a fake Honor box set. Not.

The worst thing I have had is a real EU release I bought that had been re-sealed and sold as sealed. The item was in very nice condition but it has some grit etc under the seal that gave it away. And even then, really I know the seller was just trying to compete because they know they are at a disadvantage based on all the traditional western opinion that they are all pirates, and that everything in America is sold sealed if it is new, when it often isn't anywhere else. So I let it go it was no big deal.

And yeah I bought two Japanese sealed CDs about 3 weeks ago and they BOTH had promo stickers that was never mentioned. In fact if you think about it, that makes good sense - it is highly likely the promo copies that are floating around OUTSIDE the normal retail channel have more chance of making it cheaply to places outside of Japan than the ones pressed for normal sale.

Interesting. I have just bought a Rope promo CD from Hong Kong! I am sure it is official and will be worth a huge amount in years to come.
