Possibly fake printed CMF?
I recently bought a series 1 nurse CMF from a bricklink store.
When it arrived, it raised my suspicion immediately. It arrived in ziplock bag, which is normal when buying bricklink. It has all the Lego markings as well, so the pieces should be real Lego. But the printing on torso, head and tile looks matte and grainy. Colors look bit pale as well. Seems, like someone is printing Lego pieces themselves and then tries to sell it as genuine CMF.
Another little detail that makes me suspicious is that the head piece has recessed stud instead of blocked open stud they had in 2010.
I have about hundred CMF's plus about the same amount minifigs from different sets. I've never seen such a bad quality printing on Lego minifig before.
Is the figure real or fake?
