rivalappears (23 days ago) #28750228I'd ask them for pictures of the actual item. As a general rule with ebay, if you can't see the actual item you're buying, don't buy it.
Aside from that, people here are selling her for much cheaper than that auction anyway (mfc link)


Guess I'll buy my stuff of this site from now on. I checked out sites like AmiAmi or Hobby Link and the item is either sold out or really expensive. Thats why I started looking on ebay but I guess I wont have to resort to that.

Thanks for the help and have a great day!

I met today a seller that sells bootleg figures with a holographic sticker that i have never seen before.
The holographic sticker is round and in the middle it contains a worldglobe that is flatten with the word 'original'on it. On the outer border there is twice the text: 'Genuine Guaranteed'.

darkvoodoo (1 month ago) #27801865Thank you for taking the time out to respond to my post. That's a load of my mind. Next time I'll purchase from Hobby search, amiami, etc so I don't have to worry whether or not my purchase is authentic or not.
Thank you so much for your help and have a wonderful weekend!


You're very welcome, you have a great weekend too!

ugendo (1 month ago) #27800689These look totally real to me. Made in China is extremely common so I wouldn't worry about that plus it looks like this seller is based in Japan. The only negative feedback seems to be poor packaging but if yours are fine that's a nonissue.

I just started collected anime figures and purchased two figures off ebay (will never do again.) I think I'll use sites like amiami for any future purchases.

In your opinion, do these figures look like the genuine article? I watched a video that explained that if the bottom of the pedestal says made in china, that's not a good sign but I i've read that its not uncommon for figures to be sculpted in japan and manufactured from china.

Apologies if the photos I provided aren't the best. Thank you for any help you guys can give and have a happy halloween!!

Kittokatsu (1 month ago) #27606971I bought a K-on! 5th anniversary Tsumugi item #265076 off Amazon during the summer. Was sealed. Arrived looked legit. But reading a few things here, she didn't have the sticker on the box. The figure looks like its not cheep bootleg quality though.
Chances she's fake?

How much did you pay for her? A lot of figures come without a sticker on the box, so that doesn't automatically mean bootleg. It doesn't look like she has one regardless. (mfc link) If she doesn't look cheap you're probably fine.

AquapearlX (1 month ago) #27769043Can anyone tell me if this is a legit or bootleg figure?

Shipping from China and multiple feedbacks saying fake/bootleg so I'd say bootleg.

mnprnc (2 months ago) #26376483Uhhhh not sure if This is the right place but I'm very curious about an amazon seller. They are selling a figure I really want. I checked out the listing for her here and it has no submitted bootlegs,,,so I'm wonder if this listing could be legit.
I'm hell bent on ordering it here (amazon) if possible because i have a GC balance that'll knock a bit over half off the price, so it's just super convenient.

Thanks.

8-Bit_Asian (3 months ago) #25448506What originally gave me the impression that it was fake was because of both the AliExpress and the coloring. While the paint job is actually decent, the colors are definitely off. I think this is likely do to a lack of shading. In addition, his eye looks a bit derpy, but that's likely due to the angle of the pic.
However, I did some more research and actually found out that there are no official Super Saiyan 3 Goku figures on the market in this pose and with the Kamehameha light effect. The only ones released are these: [ext link ].
Nevertheless, your figure still looks good and is in my opinion still an awesome display piece. It's a bootleg, but it's not a clone of anything on the market.
EDIT: Scratch everything I have said, there is a figure like yours. I was under the impression yours came with a light because it was the first I saw on AliExpress, but I found another. Here is a pic of the real one, you can tell that unlike the one you got, the whole body is painted and not colored plastic. [ext link ]


Again, thank you for the answer :)

troza (3 months ago) #25435900Don't be sorry. Thank you for the information.
Was there something else (besides being from Aliexpress) that showed you that it was a fake? Just to learn more about this.
Thank you very much.

8-Bit_Asian (3 months ago) #25412055Sorry to say this but that is 100% fake. AliExpress is basically the motherload of all Chinese bootlegs.

Don't be sorry. Thank you for the information.
