Hmm.. well I'm really not sure about that. But I'm sure they could, it would not be hard.

There are probably some fakes out there, I know my tama is real. I think you can tell if the logo is fake because it won't be the same as BanDai's, I have never seen one myself.

They can't do it because it's copyright infringement. They could get their butts handed to them on a platter by bandai if they were to print the bandai logo on their product. They walk a fine line - they try to make you think it's a tama without stepping on any legal toes. If it's got a bandai logo, you can be pretty sure it's legit.

However, sometimes there will be slight imperfections that they can use to avoid copyright infringement. for an example, instead of

BAN
DAI

with the red background, they may have something like

BAN
DA1

with the red background. It looks (kinda) the same at first glance, and in a blurry eBay picture you can easily be fooled. Fakers are tricky, but if you've got any worries post here in the warnings forum; TTers will be able to tell you if it's real or fake.

its more likely not to have a bandai logo on it, but
probably another company.
