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)

Seikon (6 days ago) #3105487Just this spring i have began collecting anime figures after 3-4 years of watching and buying posters cloths etc. Ironically my first figure was Kawarou Nagisa from evangelion item #219519 which i got from a little anime store in Las Vegas.anyway i was so happy to finally get a figure because i had never seen one before. When i opened it from return from my trip but when i opened it i though i was going to cry for the love of god do not buy from SEGA their figures are trademarked but look horrible i thought it was bootleg but then seeing other sega figures realized they are all lower-quality figures.
Sega produces prize figures that are meant to be won from crane games, etc. and are worth about $10-15 individually so they're meant to be of low quality or at least, lower quality than standard figures.

I don't remember what his default was. And I don't remember where I got him from Lol. It as been a really long time since I got him. Here are some pics. They are not great pics if you want more lemme know. His neck joints have the good smile smiley and he is not shiny or anything, but those are not for certain tells for his authenticity.

And the pictures in the post you linked are exactly what I have I think.

mariijane (1 month ago) #3030664hmmm... firstly, where did you get this from? i see fakes of this little guy literally everywhere >_____< i DID notice however... that quite a few nendos/figures imported and sold in the US do have shonen jump or funimation stickers. so it may depend on where it was purchased as well as other factors. what was the default face in the box?
is it this one?

according to what i've dug up, there was some type of reboxing done due to licenses, etc under viz for US distribution.
