    Just got my new Bape G

    I bought a new G Shock Bathing Ape in yellow off ebay the other day which arrived yesterday complete with bag, tags, manual e.t.c.
    I paid £49 for it including delivery, I was just browsing ebay a minute ago and the exact same watch was up to £100 (plus postage) with 1 day of bidding left and 15 bids already submitted, so do you think I got a bargain for £45?

    I'm very sorry mate but I think you have a fake. Check how many the seller has already sold (considering they are a limited edition) and also refer to the other fake bape thread.

    If a genuine was ever to appear on ebay it would go for about £400 upwards.

    Sorry, I may of course be wrong but fake Bapes are ridiculously common and the scourge of ebay, please put up the link for the one you bought.

    Test 1, drop test 3 metres: all of the buttons fell off.
    Test 2, a sink full of salty water: 5 seconds in the display went blank.

    Total crap including the assholes who sell them, (pardon my french)lol

    Lol

    Great test with some great results! Shame you didn't take pictures!

    At least your in good humour about it!

    Maybe some abusive messages to the seller or a report to ebay to try and reclaim some money might be in order!

    Yep they are scumbags indeed. Could you post the sellers name so others don't make the same mistake.

    Cheers Sjors,

    It was just one of my photoshop hybrids. But still more genuine than some of these Bapes lol

    You could have gotten the same fake Bape for far less on Ebay USA...

    Once bitten, twice shy. I hope it won't put you off buying more G's. If in doubt, post your intended purchase here first.
