What are the signs of a GPK figure being a custom or repro, etc...?

 

How can I tell the difference between a genuine figure and recast figure?

The plastic used is a big give away and colour.

There really isn't many customs of the first series as they are not hard to find in any of the common colours really, so if it's not one of the four common colours it's fake.

1:Light & Dark Blue.
2:Light Green,Dark Green, (Pea Green and Lime Green) but those are less common.
3: Light Red & Dark Red.
4: Dull Peach & Bubblegum peach.

Never seen any of the above colours faked*

Series 1 Rares.
1: Neon Green
2: Neon yellow
3: Neon Red
4: Electric Blue
5: Orange
6: Salmon pink

Also never seen any of the above figures faked*

If it's a custom of a series two you will know by putting it in water, if it sinks it's fake!
The U.K. Garbage Gang figures also float they come in another 4 unique colours which are easy to spot.

1: UK Glossy Blue
2: UK Peach
3: Uk Aqua Green
4: Cinnamon

Do you have pictures of the said figure or figures? I have a huge collection of cheap toys with full variational base set of 80+ figs.
And own figures in every colour from each set.

Is it becuase you want to sell them? If they are commons they are not worth much in the current climate mate $5 each.

First two- same feel, harder rubber and markings on back.
Third- more rubbery, markings on back.
Fourth and Fifth- rubbery like third one is, but can't see any markings.

Coloring probably tells the tale? Help!

3rd one is a cracked crystal custom by NolanJP and MuscleThings. I have a couple clear teal versions. It was a new sculpt that Nolan did. Worth about $20-$30 or so.

The last two are repros. Worth about $10 each. Not 100% certain on the horse, but if it is the same material as the head, then yes, repro.
