Normally, the job of posting news is an interesting and pleasant task. Unfortunately, the negative side of our hobby occasionally comes to the forefront. No more so than the Customer Alert from Alpine Miniatures ...
Never having needed to post such a story here before, it is my sad duty to reprint the following announcement from Taesung Harmms, the proprietor of Alpine Miniatures

Consumer Alert!!!
It has come to our attention that there is an unauthorized individual who's selling Alpine Miniatures products in an area where I do have an exclusive dealer. This type of activity hurts all of us, our consumers, dealers and Alpine Miniatures. Because the individual mentioned above is selling our figures at a ridiculously low price, I suspect that they are unauthorized copies, aka 'fakes'. Please be aware of these fakes as they do not represent Alpine Miniatures' quality. All Alpine Miniatures figures are packaged in a uniquely designed box as shown on this page. If any figures are being sold without this box, they are fakes. You can help us and our hobby by boycotting the fakes. Thank you!
