Last week, I was in Barcelona and visited a comic book shop/ figure shop. They also had a section for anime figures. While I was planning to add new figures to my collection, I realised they have a lot of cute prize figures. I saw ITEM #448318 and excited. But I realised the box has a little red logo on the top right corner, written "Jamma". I looked at the other prize figures and every other figure also had that little "Jamma" logo. Other figures were ITEM #368550 ITEM #207159 ITEM #314668 ITEM #111862

I didn't bought the Gojira- Asuka figure, because there wasn't any "Gainax" or "Evangelion" sticker. Instead of the sticker, an "Evangelion Product" logo was printed on the back of the box.

It was an interesting logo because every of these figures were from different companies like Sega or FuRyu. Does anybody know a thing about "Jamma" ?

Have you ever bought a figure without the "official product" sticker?

The box looks exactly same with the one I saw on the store. I'm plannig to buy it and Rei online. $30 is a reasonable price.

Jasmine-chan4 years ago#23746190Thank you so much for the information!
Thank you :) You are right, not every single figure has a license sticker, but I own like 15 Evangelion figures both prize, pre-painted, model kit and trading. Every single one has a licence sticker, that was the reason why I was suspicious and wanted to ask about it.


Yeah, most Evangelion stuff does have a sticker. Can't swear if it all does. Didn't see evidence of fakes for that one, but didn't go for much of a dig.

Looks like you can get it for around $30 online though.

So these stickers likely identify the distributor rather than the manufacturer

Thank you so much for the information!

tharglet4 years ago#23739672JAMMA isn't a manufacturer, just means it is a prize figure. Personally don't know much more about JAMMA than the wiki article, but I assume it means the figure is 'prize approved'.
I've got a bunch of legit figures without stickers - not all manufacturers or licensors have stickers.
If a figure was for a franchise that usually gives out stickers, then I'd be wary of it for sure. In my experience, counterfeits for cheaper figures tend to have no box though. Not a certainty, but definitely common.

If it was original, I will be really sad about missing it, but if it was counterfeit then I am lucky about leaving it.
