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. So at this mall I live by, they have this store called Hello Anime, (It's also called Too Cool) they sell bootleg everything. Unofficial anime, figures, pillows, wallets, soundtrack, plushies, and other things like that. I know it's the kind of store where once they sell all of their stock, they move out and go to another mall. Should I report it? They sell legit Hello Kitty merch, and I would feel really bad reporting because the managers are really nice, But they just sell gross things. What should I do?

I believe that seller has been confirmed as selling legit figures a while back (you'll have to go back a bit in the comments to get that information).

aeonblue (26 days ago) #2654197Which hair strand were you talking about? If you meant the ahoge (the strand on the top of her head) then yours looks just like everyone one else's. While the prototype has a straight ahoge it seems like it 'wilted' on the final product. Compare picture #40904 and picture #104886.
As for the boxes I'm fairly sure the original release was printed with Unlimited Codes picture #98025 while the re-release was printed with Stay Night picture #1209885.
I can't really judge on the quality of your figure since the picture doesn't let me see much but from afar it looks good. So in all likelihood you probably have an authentic re-release.
