    I browse Zenmarket a lot too and have to agree that they are one of the cheaper proxy out there. I have noticed that lately there has been an increase in bootlegs in YJA. I always try to look at the photos then compare them to the bootlegs ones MFC users put up. If they only have stock images of the product I just stay clear to be safe.

    Bootleggers are getting smarter now, I've seen bootlegs with almost the same manufacturer stickers on the boxes so if you just glance over, it seems legit until you look at it more carefully.

    ITEM #117384 The painting was so disappointing for me, 4 years later I still remember the disappointment lol. Otherwise it's a really cute figure.

    I'm pretty cool with these types of derivative mods since you're almost never going to get this kind of figure from the original manufacturer. So while they're not 100% original, it's fulfilling a market that the originals don't exactly cater to. I feel the same about resin recasts of PVC figures (recasts of already resin garage kits are super gray area for me though).

    The bootlegs/knockoffs that are 1:1 PVC copies of original PVC figures I have issues with, since they are supposed to cater to the exact same market (regardless of buying power) and so are technically stealing profit from the original manufacturers, especially since they're also made in large quantities. There's the argument that people who are buying bootlegs wouldn't be buying originals anyway, but bootlegs definitely discourage someone who might want to save up for an original if bootlegs didn't exist at all.

    I find it a tad funny that this version of Gilgamesh has a bit more "beef" to him compared to Orange Rouge's Caster Gilgamesh.

    I'm not completely understanding the whole procedure. I thought you just make the extra parts by hand on the figure and leave it to cure and a mold is not required.
    It would be awesome if you can make a guide or tutorial on this. Youtube video would be great.
    Thank you very much for your replies.


    Well, I can write you a guide. Granted I never did anything like this before but, eh. Seems easy enough. Also a word of warning you're heavily modifying a figure. This can damage your figure beyond repair and is irreversible. This in mind you'll need,

    -Hobby Clippers or Knife (or both)
    -Apoxie or Milliput.
    -Primer and Top Coat
    -Airbrush and brushes
    -Paint
    -Sandpaper

    So, let's pick a figure. Now, I recommend characters in either skin-tight jump suits or swimsuits. Don't attempt this with scales who are not in revealing clothing as you'll damage them beyond repair. So for our purposes, let's work with Mami. Her swimsuit is simple to work with, ample room to spare, and she's cheap and on AmiAmi for like 1.8K yen.

    So, first and foremost let's get those strings off. Using your hobby knife or clippers, you're going to cut these off. Next up, the bikini straps. Use your knife to scrape off the top layer of the plastic. While you're at it, scrape off as much "raised" parts as you can. You see, we want our Mami's bikini to be as "skin tight" as possible so we're going to remove as much plastic as we can. We want the bikini and the skin to be the same level, not raised. So now it's time to take our sandpaper and grind down the bikini. Remember, try to keep it level. And also be careful because you can remove to much of the figure by accident.

    Now, next up we're going to take our milliput or apoxie and fix any knicks or scratches you might have made (and you will have made it). Wait for it to dry and sand it down. We also want to apply the putty to the gaps we might have. Again, wait for it to dry and sand it down. Now that this is done, remove Mami's head (joke intended) and we're going to apply our primer to the torso and the left arm. We're going to repaint over these areas. So, we're going to carefully sprayer the primer onto the torso and arm. We want thin layers, not heavy. Heavy layers will make the end result... really ugly. If you happen to have applied too much primer (or paint) dunk the figure into a container of Simple Green for a day or two and then remove the excess paint or primer with a toothbrush. So after you applied your primer, time to paint. I'm a hand painter (preferring brushes) but most people seem to like spray painting. So that's what we're going to do. Spray paint the primed areas, again applying light layers and not heavy. You'll want your color to match the skin tone of Mami, which will be up to you cause hell if I know! Also make sure Mami's head was removed during all of this, or at the very least protected by masking tape, tin foil, hell anything to block the paint.

    Now that we sprayed Mami you should notice that the body is now uniformed and nothing really there to indicate the bikini (I'm assuming. Like said, never did this before. Someone with more experience can help). Apply our top coat and again thin layers. Now it's time for the nipples and vagina. Except I have no idea how to do a vagina. So nipples it is! Well, we'll use putty here and you're going to make them as complex or a simple as you want. Up to you how you want.

    And there you go. A naked Mami you can now... maybe display. Maybe not. Likely not. Least I think that's how it's done.
