Are GMC's easy to fake.

I've been seeing alot of GMC swirled copies that look awful close to the real deal. With the limited color range do you think some fakes might be sneaking into the hands of Jem lovers?

No I don't think its possible due to the serial number and they might also be numbered and signed im not sure don't no alot about about GMC's. Some of the GMC swirls people have done are spectacular and beautiful.

I don't think you need to fake it. You just can have a replica. There are some great examples out there. It is the same as you'd like to replicate a 7Vwh or a DNA. It's what it is.

However there's nothing like the real deal I have been waiting many years to find a good (and real) one

ATD swirls are very recognisable. I don't think someone will copy that style any time soon.

ATD swirls are simply very unique and beautiful.
I have my own GMC replica, out of a 77FP neck:
