    Calling all Duffy experts!

    Didn't really want to make a thread solely on this, but could y'all help a DSTAR out and tell me if this little guy is real? I just won him (I really just put a bid down knowing it'd lose, but to my surprise, I won!). I'm trying to figure out why I wasn't outbid (not that I'm complaining- look at his face!). Is this a genuine Duffy? I know that the laying down Duffys go for several hundred $$, why was this guy so cheap?

    The photo is too small to really get a good look at it. So I don't know. I see the auction has already ended though.

    When you get him, take some good closeup photos and post them here so we can get a better look. Take photos of the tags and everything.

    It's hard to tell, it looks legit. He has reasonable rep, were there bigger/more photos? That is the old/early Disney Bear Design for sure but the tags tell it all, like aimster said. But you got it at a good price! You probably got lucky! It DOES happen on Ebay(I've gotten luck on ebay a few times before).

    It might be one of those rare limited edition $100 Disney Bears

    Re: Calling all Duffy experts!

    This looks legit. I can clarify though.

    It's not the early Disney Bear at all. Even from the small picture I can tell that this is the "intermediate" Disney Bear. The one they came out with in 2007 or so. It's smaller than a regular Duffy or Disney Bear. It's also not as soft. The face is different.

    It's this one:


    You got a good price for him. The thing is, this particular design doesn't really sell for a lot on Ebay, because it wasn't rare. This was the design they had for sale just before the Duffy relaunch, and then they pulled all of these bears, probably sending them to the outlet stores.

    He's not quite as cute as a real Duffy, in my opinion. They did attempt to sell clothes for it though, like little t-shirts, and even a fireman's costume. They are a little too small to fit the 17" Duffy bears, but people have tried.

    He's cute, but what Gurgi said, not cute as Duffy himself. This one looks more generic teddy bear. Duffy is unique looking compared to other bears.

    Re: Calling all Duffy experts!

    Unfortunately, the seller didnt include the bigger pictures I saw in the description. There were much bigger ones on the actual item pictures. I will, of course, take detailed pictures of him when he gets here. The original ebay pics had one of his face close up, all of him, and a tag picture. The tag (if I can remember correctly) had that older gold and red Disney parks logo on it. The tag itself was a loop or a small strip of fabric (Like normal clothing tags) and was on his backside.

    Here's a picture of the logo I think I recognized-
    Google Images
    Of course, it wasnt rounded, it just had that yellow castle and something red in it (I cant remember right now, gahh).


    Also, he may not be as cute as current Duffy but I really like him. He's got a much different face, which I think is cool.

    He's cute. It's what I thought. I hope you enjoy him, and he makes nice with your other bears.

    Re: Calling all Duffy experts!

    Well, I received a special little package of fluff today! I was a bit surprised that he was that small, but that's what makes him cute :3

    Here are some pics (taken with my phone because I'm a bit tired, sorry)

    The Picture of the Mickey mark on his butt looks a little off to me. Like more sideways than on my regular duffy.

    Yes, it does look a bit sideways. I'm not sure if this was standard on the pre-Duffy bears.

    I his size, especially with the other two bears. It really makes him stand out, kinda like Lil'D. Too cute! And the price was a steal! Congratulations on the newest member of your family!^^
