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)

hyperassasin95 (2 days ago) #2376577well i've just asked him to send me some photos of the item so i'm hoping for a reasonable reply, and "It doesnt appear to be bootleg at least not the way the description says plus hee from japan even willing to look up for items.." well look at luv-japan, you can't get cocky just for that, theres plenty of store that say that and in the end they send you bootlegs or bad condition items. but thank you anyway :)

Yes ofc but how else can you be guaranteed that he/she is not a scammer? Think we are psycic? Based on the links you send it doesnt look bootleg.

And you can open a case as i said in case she is a bootleg after all

And bootleggers usually say 100% authentic but never mention the manufacturer name which to me makes it seem less suspicious :P

But well maybe someone has dealt with this user

I asked the user to look up a WF limited noel vermillion

And yeah if he or she sends you pics then all is good

A pic you can find anywhere doesnt imply bootleg but it does raise question marks

If youre doubting you could ask the seller for more pictures, if tey reply it shows theyre trustworth. If they dont or do reply but with a lame excuse on why they cant take a pic then be cautious..
And used isnt necessarily bad it is just secondhand :) you could ask the seller to clarify this for you as well in which condition it is exactly in (no damage etc)
He even states no bootleg only official, when you buy something and they have it losted and you receive a bootleg you could always open a case and will win it since they promised an authentic figure
and he states the manufacturer as well

Yukinaoni (22 days ago) #2342708Seller is probably intentionally or unaware that he/she is selling a bootleg miku plush: (ext link)
Reading the description, I see its implying on showing "authenticity", but the pink hair ribbons, leek position, and lanyard are a huge sign that its bootleg. Just because a seller is from the US doesn't mean that they won't sell bootlegs.

Shouldn't be this reported to Ebay and/or tell the Seller she is selling a fake Miku? I am 200% sure it is a bootleg and she claims that it is not a chinese bootleg! That is lying!! I tried to write to the Seller but my german Ebay account doesn't let me... :(

musdy (27 days ago) #2334316This is probably too good to be true. (ext link)

That, and it straight up says "chinese version". Always a dead givaway, even though most authentic figures are made in china anyway.

Be careful out there.
