Comments What to Do With Unwanted Bootlegs

  • Bootlegs are the ideal guinea pigs for customization purposes.

    Doesn't matter what your art skills are: If you need something to experiment on (be it for potential repairs on the authentic figs), "booties" will serve this purpose well.

    I would just give them away. Don't really like the idea of charging money for a bootleg. Like someone else said, you could only charge for the shipping to avoid making a loss.

    I ended up with a bootleg by accident and resold it, but was very upfront with the fact that it was not authentic. Sometimes people don't mind buying them if they're cheap enough.

    Bury them so that our future generations might dig them up and conjure up some crazy myth surrounding it which then spawns cults etc. xD

    Donate them to a charity shop.

    Yeah, like one person said, you can try practicing painting on them if you're considering to try out the garage kit hobby. I recall an article where someone repainted a bootleg Miku Nendoroid and it turned out nice.

    Edit: I found the article! (BLOG #47797)

    If you have Sader, I might be in the market.

    you could always use the bootlegs as test units for customization or modding. (I personally cannibalize for mod parts any bootleg Gunpla I've gifted with)

    I would just toss them. Reselling bootlegs hurts the community. (And you dont know what they're made of).

    Also make sure selling bootlegs is legal in your country if you do decide to go that route. It's illegal in a lot of them, even if you disclose they're fake.
