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)

Hey guys! I've been looking around amazon and Ebay and I've come up with some very loose price ranges for a couple of pretty popular figures (please note that I live in the U.S.)

Figma - usually anywhere from 50-100+

Figuarts - 32+

Nendoroid - (depending on release date) Older - 50-90+ / Newer - 40-80

Nendoroid Petit - single 20-50 / set 50-100+

Now I have to warn you that THESE AREN'T EXACT, THEY'RE JUST FOR HELPFUL REFERENCE BASED OFF OF PRICES I'VE SEEN ON EBAY AND AMAZON FOR NEW, IN-BOX FIGURES

(Note- out of box or figures with damage to them will normally go for a lot less than their new And pristine counterparts)

Muntoe (18 days ago) #2399668I hope I'm understanding you correctly but it is very common for bootleggers to get exclusive trading figures or things that are bundled and remake them into a set. I haven't seen these on Ebay yet but if it had all the red signs of a bootleg and your shop usually carries bootlegs I would avoid them.
Mm, this is what I thought but I wasn't 100% sure so thanks! I looked on ebay and these were almost nonexistent on rakuten when I was looking before. I just hadn't heard myself of the little bundle figured getting bootlegged so I was curious. I think I'll update them having ones if you haven't already. Sadly I don't think I'll get to visit the store for pictures again before leaving. I really wanted to do so. Oh well.

Has anyone ever heard of lawson figures that were bundled with things being bootlegged? Specifically these item #217853 I found some in a store with all bootlegs so I'm curious. Most looked decent for what the originals would have been...though poor Armin had scuffs all on his head and when I inquired the lady totally pulled more out of the typical bootleg bag of many. So even more red flags. But they all had the right copy rights and such. I almost bought one...tried to take a pic but the lady was not amused with my reply to her "you'll buy it and not even notice the marks" lol Not the first time I've been kicked out of a bootleg store. I may try to get a pic before I leave, but now it's more curiousity then anything. -.-;; That HK throws me but it's on the original so, um...yup~

I made a blog(mfc link) about fake and legit Uta no Prince-sama rubber straps. Maybe as a Bootleg Finder you know more about bootleg stuff than other MFC members so please take a look at the rubber straps and vote for the bootlegs!
