I'm sure most of us have fallen into the trap of getting a bootleg figure. When I first started out I bought a couple of bootlegs and was sad to discover they were not the authentic figure. Here's some tips and tricks to help you make an informed decision before you buy.



Hope you found this video helpful and thanks for watching!

snowadams4 l. temu#8408362Bootlegs actually hurt the whole industry. I find that this video is very educational (Bootleg Fogures at London Comic Con.... my paste function isn't working. Sorry)

I understand that it does, which is why I personally do not buy them, but I don't judge those who do too harshly.

It is the same with pirating, people tend to want entertainment for free or a very low price due to their poverty, to which we can't deny them a right to do. I am more sympathetic than most as I am on the poverty line myself (I save vigorously to buy the legit things I want to own).

However, regarding hurting the industry, as long as the people who can afford it can support it, then I don't see a problem with bootlegs as long as the people who are buying them know the risks, dangers and when selling them, highlight why the prices are cheaper due to being bootlegs.

I hope you understand my stance on this. :)

The problem is sadly to do with bootleggers who do not highlight when they are of low quality goods. I personally think that market should be split from those who want to buy the legit products at the prices that they sell to, and do not endorse bootlegs that can harm people due to the low quality plastics.

Bloosica4 l. temu#4261287I'm not going to tell people what to do with their money either, but I personally support the authentic nendoroids and made this video to have people at least aware so they know what they are buying.

I'm glad that you have for people to be educated on the differences between the real thing and a fake thing.

I am somewhat surprised at a few fakes myself as some can be pretty hard to notice on appearance, and I believe someone on eBay UK sells the fakes at mostly knock down prices (I think he/she lists them as such, including country of origin). It's an odd scenario but I am somewhat glad that some people list them separately.

Bloosica4 l. temu#4223511Thank you! I understand what you are saying as some nendoroids can be quite pricey, but bootlegs are normally cheaper because of the materials. I personally have never found a bootleg that was as good quality as the real thing, but who knows they could exist.

StarlightLotice4 l. temu#4223452It's a shame that bootlegs can be very tricky to discover over authentic Nendoroids, and I am glad this video exists to help those of us who wish to buy the actual thing.
However, bootlegs do have their uses. Such as a lower price point to those who can't afford the Nendos, and on very rare cases, the Bootleg can look better than the authentic Nendo parts (of course, the material can greatly vary so be careful if you do plan on buying Bootlegs).
Overall, I hope this thread can be stickied! :D

Leo223344556 l. temu#1781315Very interesting and easy to understand! Would be nice if you had photos comparing things so that the images are a little more crisp and its easier to see the difference! But good video :)

Thanks. Sorry it's not as crisp or the best HD, but I think for the most part you can make out the differences.
