    It would be hard to find a bootleg version 7 years after spotting it. Just like original figures, they are made if there's a demand for cheap popular figure. You could try to find pre-owned figure, ask for photos and negotiate the price if it looks like a bootleg.

    Have you considered a prize figure by Sega ITEM #54502? She's cheaper, easier to find pre-owned and original. People are complaining about face and feet though.

    Oh, ok. I’ve seen the Sega version before, but unfortunately she just doesn’t look as nice as the Alter version, and she seems to be a bit pricey right now too for being a prize figure.

Complaining about the quality of a prize figure compared to a scale while searching for the bootleg of the scale? I don't understand your logic.

    Judging from the picture alone, the prize seems to be better than the bootleg from alter imho:

    Regarding the price: looking at the ads, there is one up for sale for 30€ from another user.

    In the end, if you want quality, save the money and get the real alter one instead i would say.

    Oh, ok. There definitely is a difference in quality. The only reason I don’t care for the Sega version is the face and hair sculpt much. Hopefully I can find the official Alter one eventually for a good price, but the reason I would be interested in the bootleg was to save costs and because it looks similar to the Alter version.
