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)

I was looking through some ebay sellers for a Mikasa figma for a friend and found this shady seller

he states is legit but the actual pictures of the figma scream bootleg(the color of joints, big gap on them too) so beware people

Gyaak, gomene! I figured out my mistake: I kept making a typo (ochotamo). I just found them in the database.

Bloempje (21 days ago) #2231776Not sure about item #29307 (ext link) i have my doubts also the pictures.
Justified, as the painting surface doesn't look smooth enough for Orchid Seed, on some spots it looks a bit too grainy. >.< Also some details don't look right and the price is alarming as well.

Hey guys, I was wondering if you could help me out. I'm after photos of bootleg figures to use in a video feature for my youtube channel.

All the relevant info is in that blog post. If you already have photos on MFC that you wouldn't mind me using, feel free to link them to me. Just make sure that they're yours.
