    so I have been looking for some my hero acadamia figurs and I came acroses this seller and as soon as I saw the prices for the stuff he or she has listed andon top of that I looked at the seller review and it seems like they are getting mostly positive reviews and I thought that this was too good to be true, so I wanted everyone opinion on these figures:

    Honestly I will not trust any figures sold on AliExpress as genuine. The boxes and some of the paint jobs on his figures shows on the listings look like bootlegs to me. I also searched for some figures that I own on the seller's page and the bases of his figures are different than mine so I highly suspect that the figures on the page are bootlegs.

    Yes, bootlegs. You even have photos featuring 'bootleg fence' - the white fencelike planter in the background that some factory always uses as their backdrop.

    The reviews on AliExpress are rarely negative - the majority of buyers are either aware of what they're getting or don't care/know any better. Also sellers may negotiate with you if a negative review is left.

    There are very, very few genuine item sellers on AliExpress, so I'd stay away if you want genuine goods.

    I haven't bought from the few sellers I've seen knocking around, so I couldn't vouch for any, nor remember their storefront names. Not sure if it's an entirely competitive option to other stores.

    I've just assumed anything off Aliexpress was fake/bootleg.
    If there were chinese exclusives, I'd go off Taobao to find an authentic seller.
