Bootleg Desktop army figures?Bootleg Desktop army figures?Ask MFC

bahzahkahbahzahkah4 months ago
Title is kind of self explanatory. I recently purchased the FGO desktop army (The set of ITEM #645897 ITEM #645899 ITEM #645900) within Japan (to be specific at the Radio Kaikan) and noticed that the displays differ from what I got. The shield on my mash is unpainted within the circle portion of the shield and is just plain purple. Just wondering if this was normal?

I think it should be genuine. I also went to Radio Kaikan on my Japan trip last summer and didn't see any bootlegs there.

I did see a store in Akihabara which had stairs going up to it and the cashier was hidden (no employees in the store). That was sketchy and the prices were pretty cheap so that seemed like a bootleg place to me. I also compared some of the figures to the real ones and the quality was very noticeably inferior on the potential bootleg ones.

bahzahkah4 months ago#76088887Thanks for the reference, seems like the ones I got are the genuine article. It didn't occur to me to check out unboxing videos.......

np, sometimes I forget, but now it's usually my second go-to if I'm trying to find actual pictures of a figure when there aren't any on MFC. Prototype pics do show that part coloured, but obviously they decided to forgo painting it in production.

Looking on a site that sells bootlegs, I can't find one that is deffo the Desktop Army one, so she may not have a bootleg ver. There is a bootleg of a Chara-forme Mash, so probably unlikely a bootlegger will pick this up for bootleg production, as it's possibly more of a pain in the arse being half-kit, and there is already a similar-ish figure available.

Also the fact you bought it in one of the stores in Radio Kaikan would make it unlikely to be a bootleg.

At the link timestamped, it looks like the large shield is painted, but the smaller one is not.
