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)

felc57 (2 days ago) #3241221Hello, I was wondering if this happened to be bootleg. For the link, scroll down a bit and you'll see some pictures.

I know that the ebay seller is pretty reputable, plus they mention that it's japanese official, but I just want to be safe. It just looks a bit... off to me. Thanks for any help
This seems safe to me (plus they say 100% legitimate on their items). I think this is just one of those Japanese sellers who buys a bunch of items in bulk without boxes and then tries to put them on Ebay to get a profit back ^^;

xdlaro (2 days ago) #3241065Hi well im here to ask if this figure is legit or no:(ext link)

The sticker makes the think it's legitimate but there is no way I can tell you for sure with a picture that small (and without a shop listing).

aeonblue (5 days ago) #3229696Please avoid posting these as there'd be almost no way to find them otherwise and they don't really have a use without being attached to an entry.

You are right. it will be a bit useless. Glad i asked first :)

Bloempje (5 days ago) #3228415Is it allowed to post bootleg pictures if there is no related entry in the database?

Purple_Midknight (6 days ago) #3222758gahhh that would be a really great buy, but you can tell that its fake not only by what she looks like, but the fact that the guy has A LOT of them, if a seller has a lot of a figure, it must mean that its fake.
Tbh if you really wanna know, ask the seller for a image of the base, to see if the correct trade mark etc is there!
Hopefully this helps XD
Thanks for the input lol

Muntoe (5 days ago) #3224780It says "Chinese Factory Homegrown" lol, it's fake.Yeah, I caught that, hence my "0%" comment. I mean, rule of the thumb after all is "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't good"

FoolyDooly (6 days ago) #3221974What's the chance of this NOT being bootleg? (ext link)
About 0%, I'd assume?
