    elessar123 (6 months ago) #21040814No, they were caught multiple times selling bootlegs. As recently as a year ago or two ago. Typically, if you get it at the same time as the figure's official release, it should be fine.
    All the bootlegs that I remember are when they delay shipping, or put it up old stock. The problem is that they're not an official distributor, so they get their stock from other people. The other people sell them bootlegs and they get mixed in with the legitimate figures. That's why they're listed as bootleg.
    Ultimately, it's buyer beware.


    As i said, it's my experience with them. I always buy from legit sites (AmiAmi, BiJ, HS, HLJ, Mandarake, etc) and i had no problem with them, actually i've ordered lots of figures from Nippon and i have to say that all of them were legit (of course i can prove it, and i can tell the difference between legit one and a bootleg) I'm not saying you're liying, don't misunderstand me at all, just saying i didn't have any problem about that with any figure i bought to them.

    Besides i have to say that i only order figures that i have doubts about shipping method (I use SAL reg) because of box size. In many sites the same figures are not available for SAL while Nippon let you that option. But until now, everything i bought from them were legit.

    Belikov_xp (6 months ago) #20943901I know right? I have a friend who just decided that she wanted Jibril but.. most of the places that sell her is almost $300 usd.. it's crazy!

    I just realised I ordered another figure with her and combined the order I think. Does anyone know if I can split the order when it comes time to pay so I can offer the pre order to someone else?

    If you are still looking for places to pre-order take a look into the sites listed below, i don't have any experiences with them (except reddotcommerce & Archonia), but when desperate it would be wise the widen your options. They seem to have good feedback and reliabilty...

    (Excluding shipping costs)
    Yorokonde www.yorokonde.d...: €182,90 ('Partnered' 94% with 18 feedbacks from Germany)
    Sukipanwww.sukipan.de/: €192,90 (95% with 11 feedbacks from Germany)
    Red Dot Commerce www.reddotcomme...: €183,95 (Pretty unknown but growing, reliable based on personal experiences. From the Netherlands)
    Archonia: www.archonia.co... €224,29 (83% with 29 feedbacks from Belgium)

    If you still hesitate you could also wait and order a second-hand one from 'Mandarake'mandarake.co.jp, but no guarantees because they rely on people selling their figures to them.

    Jjuryef (6 months ago) #21039061Nippon-Yasan is a bootleg site according to Myfigurecollection.
    You could wait and order on release but there will be no guarantee to the availability of the figure and the price could possibly increase.


    NY had some issues in its early days with accidentally sending out bootlegs, iirc, but they have improved by leaps and bounds over the years imo. I've purchased authentic figures from there--it's more that they're not a MFC partner, I think.

    CereFR (6 months ago) #21039044Is it safe to wait until the release date to get her from some company's stock?
    I heard Nippon-Yasan and BigInJapan use to have stock on release dates.
