As a side note, Taobao is a Chinese shopping website that is owned by Alibaba and known to sell factory error and/or stolen Barbie heads and bodies before the actual dolls are released to market. There has been some crackdown on this, but these Barbie heads and bodies are still making it to market.
In 2017, the site sold heads for the national convention exclusive doll Golden Galaxy - making it difficult to tell if loose, nude dolls later offered for sale were genuine GGs that had their outfits removed or were cobbled together dolls using defective parts or stolen/imperfect heads, driving her price a little higher than they might have been otherwise.
