I found this strange smurf in the bag, is it a fake ? No markings at all and a hole under the feets.

With no marking on the bottom, it's highly possible that it's a fake. It could be made by a special company, but I highly doubt it. If it were "real" It would at least have "Peyo" or "c" or something.

Smurfy to see you here again, Lisa! Well, in fact this Smurf is part of a set which is really said to be fake. Anyway, just take a look here.

I hope this helps. [Happy Smurf]

here The smurf looks like the Jokey Smurf in the link above. That would explain why the smurf has no marking on the bottom and the two holes in its feet; its base is missing! Somehow, the green base designed to look like part of a lawn with Jokey's present has been detached!

You're right, Century. And despite the Schleich tags, one can see most of them were based upon the Kinder ones.

(About these last ones, some stands seem to have been changed, eg Brainy's books and Smurfette's flowers by the way.) [Big Grin]

As I had once commented, here's the Smurf figures I purchased.

 -

 -

 -

Their plastic material is much harder than the originals, with a strong smell;
Their painting looks sometimes perfect, but taking a closer look one can see more differences; besides, the colors (chiefly the blue) seem to having been airbrush done;
About the markings, not good at all, with a certain exception - "Schleich (S), Germany, CE, Made in China" with Payo (!!) instead of Peyo!
Although they look better finished than these ones in this pic below:

 -

I posted it again in order to show that not all the people who usually make these fakes have cared much about their finishing. This proves that fakes and originals may be alike two peas in a pod smurfberries in a plate. (Yes, I know... [Roll Eyes] It was my fault: I was not wearing my glasses at that time...)

A closer view of the drum. The plastic seems to have a somewhat granulous texture.

Some time later I acquired the original Bottle Smurf. Here's some comparisons between them.
