I wouldn't trust buying any Kaws online unless it's the very new ones, in their packaging, with receipts. Or from a reputable/known seller. Too many fakes, and many of them are almost impossible to spot in pictures.
If you look closely at the first pic, you can tell from the structure of the face that something is not quite right. I can't really explain to you, but there is something gone wrong with the proportions - the arms look very stiff and the body shape doesn't look right as it is too thin. Look further downwards and the posture doesn't look right either as it stands too 'straight'. The authentic ones stick out more at the tummy area - as if it is thrusting its pelvic towards you.
Don't buy them. All of the fakes say they are factory samples. Even if they are samples, they can't possibly make such bad samples during the production stages.

They don't even look as good as the ones on ali baba express which are sold openly as bootlegs, to be fair these mouldings do look crude. At least you were supplied with the real pictures and not from an online seller that uses pictures of the real thing to flog their knock offs. Unfortunately the bootlegs are incredibly good on the whole and like happy shopper said, they are almost impossible to tell apart these days. I think in this case we don't share that same problem when spotting a wrong un.
