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)

shinhawk (1 month ago) #2460624I'm thinking of buying a Flonne nendoroid and the lowest I've seen is on Amazon. MFC doesn't have a recorded bootleg of her in the database, but I was wondering if anyone has any experience with Deputi-Japan. Are they legit? Sorry if this is not on topic, but I don't know where else to post and I just want to make sure I don't buy a bootleg nendo.

I bought a 2010 Snow Miku from them a few months ago. I believe it was around $43 free shipping. To my knowledge it's legit; everything w/ the box was fine. It's the first nendoroid I own though, so I don't have much to compare it with. The figure had some more qc issues with the paint than I expected, like Seiki mentioned w/ her experience.

DJP did relist the snow miku after I bought it w/ prices ranging to $48, now I believe it's at $40, so I'm not sure how they determine prices. (ext link)

Does this Santa Miku plush look a bit...weird? I thought the ribbons near the gloves were suppose to be green and black...this one is...blue and less fluffy (ext link) (ext link)

I found a Play Arts Axel at a thrift store today and am trying to figure out if it's a bootleg or not. If anyone is familiar with this figure, please take a look and let me know what your opinion is!

I personally haven't, but my boyfriend has. He got a Len Kagamine Nendoroid from them. While it is legit to the best of our knowledge, he wasn't entirely thrilled with them. He said the paint isn't great, but attributes it to Len's age.

The figure came packaged well, but the top part of Len's hair was broken in the box. Whether this is just bad luck or not he's said he won't use them again in the future.

Shrimpydoodle (17 days ago) #2493228I too would love to have some verification that the Snow Miku Figma I recently received is a bootleg.

Any help would be much appreciated!

From just comparing the image of the front of the box from one in the bootlegs section for the snow Miku figma it looks like a bootleg, so you should compare the one you have with the confirmed bootleg images to get a 100% confirmation.
