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)

Can someone tell me if this Hatsune Miku Figma 2.0 is a bootleg? The seller is called ABCTOYS4ME and Fulfilled by Amazon. If they are with Amazon I guess they are safe? What made me think if they were a bootleg or not is that they said it was by "Toy Zany", and from what I heard Toy Zany is not so reliable. Isn't it by Max Factory? I really need help! :O

Here's the link to the product: (ext link)

aeonblue (7 days ago) #2092224I was going to change it but now I'm going to wait for a second opinion just in case this is one of those "nah it's just Griffon" situations.

also this one in particular caught my eye the most, I mean, seriously?

item #7800 >>> (ext link)

Seller seems to have a number of other bootlegs in shop, most also have "Guarantee Original, Official Licensed Product (not fake / copy)" but I seriously doubt it.

The nendo looks completely legit and since it's from Japan it should be fine. Unfortunately it just looks like a case of really bad quality control.
