Bootleg FindersBootleg FindersHunting bootlegs one figure at a time!


Under Construction!!

This club is dedicated to finding bootlegs and preventing people from buying them! What's a bootleg? Broadly speaking, it refers to any item/media/etc. that is reproduced and sold without licensing or taxation; it is an illegal business! Many places sell bootleg figures and media because they are cheap to reproduce and have a bigger profit turnover. Sellers take advantage of both new and old collectors alike with this business. The goal of this club is to educate and prevent members of My Figure Collection from falling for bootlegs!

In addition, if you find products you think are bootlegged, are not properly marked in our database, or aren't linked here please post or let a MOD or ADM know so we can change it.

For an ongoing list of Ebay bootleg sellers please check this thread: (mfc link)

Thanks for the help Muntoe and ZoidsFanatic. I wasn't aware that the fig was getting re-released, so I had to check because the price seemed great, lol

Also going along with Muntoe, the figure is from Japan. Usually you don't need to worry about bootlegs if you're buying from Japan.

victordumpling (3 days ago) #2633065so i spent 120 dollars on a saber lily golden caliburn figure from a store that i trust and normally purchase figures from, its details are good, good quality and almost everything about it seems authentic except for the hair, which has a small strand and on my figure its leaning the other way from the images ive seen on good smile company. the box has everything on it except it has fatestaynight written instead of fate unlimited codes, i went on google images and it appears that others have purchased the same saber lily that i have with the box saying fate stay night however none of them have said the figure was a bootleg, even a reviewer who bought this one didnt mention anything about it being a bootleg. Im still skeptical about its authenticity, and im hoping this club from a website that ive just recently found will help me determine if this is either the real thing, or a really overpriced and surprisingly well done bootleg figure.
Do you have any pictures you can show us?

btw i have just checked the images on this website on reported bootleg saber lily golden caliburn, and there are a few differences from my figure and the ones in the pictures. the face on mine looks a lot more like saber unlike the ones in the images that are just derp, the arm angle is different for the left hand and same with the right hand and the sword. also the hairs on my figure are a lot more fine while in the images its very bulky. but that one hair strand, THAT ONE HAIR STRAND is awfully alike to the one in the image. maybe im being too paranoid idk, im just worried that i was ripped off, ive purchased my ultimate madoka figure, all 5 madoka magica good smile figures, and 3 good smile racing miku figures from the store and theyre all 100 percent legit, so i sincerely trust the store but if this is proven as a bootleg ill never buy figures from a store ever again going to stick with the less convenient (in my situation since im rather young in my teens and do not own a credit card and its pretty awkward showing my parents what bishoujo figure i want, my mother calls me a perverted loner sometimes T-T but in a funny way), more time consuming way of ordering it online from amiami.

Arakida (28 days ago) #2568628Hi. I'm sort of new to the whole figure collecting thing, but I found one person on Amazon that is selling an Asuna figure for a pretty low price. Also, he has a pretty good feedback rating (if that matters), and I didn't find his name anywhere on the Bootleg Sellers list, but there's always that possibility.

If you could help me out, I'd be more than grateful. Thank you.


I would stay clear from that one, since I see "CHN Ver." in the title, or China Version, which means the seller is giving you a heads up that you're buying a bootleg.

EDIT: wow, for some reason the page didn't show any posts after yours, so I didn't notice that someone answered you already. Feel free to ignore this ~

Hello,

I've recently purchased this figure item #144496 and since they are kinda hard to get by these days and the seller was from HK, I tried to figure out if it's a bootleg or not.

Now there is a bunch of bootleg shots on mfc but tbh I can hardly tell the difference between those and the real deal.

"theyasminshow" one has ribbon on the tail thing facing outwards, mine is facing inwards as the original does, so that's that. But the other two seem identical to the real thing to me. Does anyone here see any difference there?

AtelierPuni (16 days ago) #2602015I saw one of the Vocaloid jack accessories had a bootleg marked, so heads up there are bootlegs of the rest. item #144465 (ext link), item #148252 (ext link), item #144469 (ext link), and item #144467 (ext link).
Thanks all marked.
