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)

mintbunny (7 days ago) #2305206Considering in 2 years no one has uploaded any pics of any bootlegs, I'm pretty sure it's authentic. Buying on eBay is scary, but it's not as bad as some people think if you know what signs to look for. If you have any questions about eBay, I will happily help!

Thanks for the support, really appreciated! :D
Never had to worry about bootlegs before, but it seems to be a huge issue with anime/manga figures. Some sellers even get upset when I ask them if the item is genuine, because those are the questions that pop up frequently.

TheFreeSoul (7 days ago) #2305145Hello! I just received item #27852 it has no sticker on the box except one written in Kanji(?) the only english words being enterhobby com, couldn't find them on the Kotobukiya Where to Buy list. It sure looks authentic, just wanted to ask here if anyone knows that website, my research didn't yield any results (I found them on the official goodsmile partner list though). I'm a bit worried since I bought it on ebay (first time) and I heard so many awful stories.

Ezen (18 days ago) #2288624I'd really appreciate some input on this figure I just gotIt's a bootleg :( Unfortunately you're gonna need to change your picture category for those photos. If you bought it from Ebay and they said it was legit (like not "China version") you will probably want to file a claim as well.
