IS this game fake

Recommended Posts

It would cost more in time and materials to make a fake Cybermorph than to buy a legit copy. It looks like someone spilled water on the label or left it out in the rain (or trash).

I agree with madman, I can't imagine why someone would reproduce a copy of Cybermorph.  I'm sure it's real, just with a pretty poor label. Looks like someone tried (and probably succeeded) in peeling it off, judging by the upper-left and lower-right corners.  These labels do come off quite easily with a heat gun, but obviously one wasn't used here!  Or it's been left out in the elements.  Does it work?

Fake games these days have better looking labels than the real thing! It's real, for all of the above stated reasons.

No, not at all. Collectors generally want to own ORIGINAL items, not reproductions.  And this doesn't apply to just classic gaming.

I have a few NOS Cybermorph carts. For $50 I will remove the label and add a custom, one of a kind hand drawn label. ULTRA RARE!

I mean.. depending on the quality of the "hand drawn" part, $50 isn't all that pricey for commissioned art, plus you get Cybermorph, so who's the real winner here?

That label/game may have been faked.  I recommend you invest in carbon dating; and bring together a team of forensic scientists and gaming historians to conduct a full investigation of this $10 loose cart.

Print it with a red face instead of green and tag it as rare variant. Ebay madness ensues
