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)

Muntoe (10 days ago) #2820665Looks totally real to me, the seller is in Japan so they probably acquired the kit this past WF. Most original kits also come in plastic bags or small boxes like that anyway. If you really want to make sure though email the seller and ask to see the sticker of authenticity - afaik at most festivals sculptors receive a little sticker to put on their kit packaging to make sure it's the real deal. Either way it looks safe to me ^^
Great! Thank you so much for the quick response. I'll shoot the seller a mail as well, just to double check.

Thanks again! (:

Yuinna (10 days ago) #2820608Does anyone know if this is a bootleg? I think it's real, but I just want to make sure. It's a GK that hasn't been assembled yet.
Thank you for any help!

Hey everyone. Been a while since I've been on here but need some urgent help. Really interested in this figure (item #263874) and never bought a figure from ebay before.

Considering buying from this seller but it is legit if they're offering pre-orders on prize figures? They do have a 100% rating though. Also, is it generally a risk ordering from ebay sellers in Japan due to potentially damaged goods? (ext link)

Any help would be appreciated. Should I be asking any additional questions to the seller as well? Only 2 left so I'm panicking! Really didn't consider buying from ebay, or even outside the UK before. Thought I might wait until it was on Amazon UK or another outlet here.

jol_t (21 days ago) #2790156Are there really no bootlegs for the Moekore Plus 03 - 1/6 Volks Miku? Someone's selling it to me for about 25USD, I'm a little suspicious about that low price. (ext link)I'm just curious about the listing and since the picture is pretty blurry...is it possible that isn't the Volks Miku? I ask because this Sega Miku looks extremely similar and is also around that price range: item #4741

Edit: Nvm the hand posing is definitely different. But I would still prefer to look at the actual listing instead of one pic haha
