It's really indicative of how amazing this figure turned out that this pic has gotten so much attention when it was a hurried, low-effort middle of the night shot just b/c I was so excited to have piece them together :DDDDD

Jenthehen11 days ago#97923049I just looked and you're right, it does seem like they also just sell some regular licensed figures. They seem pretty honest about their products and what they are doing, so I can't imagine they are "secret bootlegs." They can probably order figures as a store to sell just like any other shop, I assume.
With how high quality the Gathering figures are, I also would be curious to see how their "true" bootlegs turn out, but I'd rather not waste the money to see lol.
I'm overall impressed with them. They have decent customer service. It took 2.5 years to get the original Princess Tutu prepainted version of the GK in hand, but that was apparently b/c they scrapped a whole bunch of them since the QC wasn't up to par ... so they clearly do care about putting out quality products.


I mean I have no experience with the place, but I did a quick search and found a reddit thread talking about how they sell bootleg recasts, but I don't collect GKs or know how it works, so honestly it could be fine. Plus that thread was from 6 years ago... no clue how it holds up now.

I was sort of following E2046's production updates on this piece and honestly, I'm kind of blown away with how it turned out. :o

Aaaah, this makes me want a Princess Tutu scale even more now.

I wish I had known about this one, may have even considered getting it.

Act11 days ago#97923014The Gathering line is really beautiful; I own one myself and I was really impressed with everything about it. e2046 is soooo complicated -- they simultaneously do a great service for the GK community while also kind of undermining it. And the Antihero line is... not a great thing. But they also do really amazing stuff.
I have never quite been able to tell if their PVC section is legit or not -- the prices are normal and they list the manufacturer properly on every page, so I've always leaned toward them being real, but maybe like dropshipped or something? Idk, I'd be curious to hear from someone who's taken the risk and bought one.

AppleNapoleon11 days ago#97922765Glad to see someone else on MFC has this gorgeous piece! I was so impressed with it when it arrived; it's even more beautiful in person than pictures could prepare me for!

I wasn't sure exactly what to expect (although I am very happy with their former recast of Princess Tutu which I also have!) but I am just thrilled with this one! They did a really great job. Honestly, this is kind of why I'm loath to give the company too much crap for being "bootleggers" b/c what they do is really distinguishable from your usual Chinese bootlegger that just steals a mold and churns out some crappy, low-quality crap. This figure was clearly made and put together with a lot of care. I'm not sure how their "true" bootlegs (of popular newer scale figures) turn out, and I can't really condone that, but ... I sure am happy with their Tutu figures (and I've honestly been tempted by their Cinnabar from Land of the Lustrous.
