    Default Question for Sega CD collectors (Flink + Repros)

    I bought a copy of Flink for sega cd about a year ago, on Ebay. My question for Sega CD collectors that own this game: Does the spine on the game look like a little darker shade of blue than the rest of your sega CD games? Mine is, and I was wondering if anyone else has a good sized collection and noticed the same. I keep getting this feeling like I got duped with a reproduction, but I don't know what that particular game looks like stacked next to others for other people's collections.

    I'm not seeing a difference on mine.

    It definitely looks darker than the other games.

    Look at the art close up with a magnifying glass, you should be able to tell if it's a clean print or if it looks like it was reprinted from a scanned image.

    I did come across a fake cover for Sonic 3 once, it looked almost perfect except the colours were off. Sometimes you can only tell if you compare the fakes next to a legit one.
