Found these bootlegs on aliexpress, guess it was just a matter of time. Bootleg general? Bootleg general
>>7490704I'm buying these for sure.
Judging by the amount of sellers with these figures, seems like the bootleggers made thousands of sets. These look like they for sure came out the back door of the same factory. If I was Randy I'd be livid. He really got punked by the chinks on this one.
>>7490704how good bootlegs are these days?As a kid i had fucked up by bootleggers - Lego bootleg TMNT bootleg and Gargoyles bootlegs.all of these were fucking CRAP. i remember getting cool gargoyle bootleg that self exploded when i opened the package.
It really depends, some bootlegs are really shit, like figuarts and figma. Others like black series and some revoltechs are pretty decent. I think they're factory rejects desu.
>>7490790Same, I would've gotten the original ones but they're not available here, fuck neca.>>7490797Yeah they look too nice, honestly I knew this was gonna happen when they first got released, those chinese have bootlegs of almost everything nowadays.
>>7490812>Same, I would've gotten the original ones but they're not available here, fuck neca.NECA is by no means perfect, but the way the '90 turtles were released was dictated by Playmates. They're the cunts you should be angry with.
I got pics of these guys from my seller. Anyone wants me to upload them here?
>>7490797Racist and stupid..yeah that checks out.
>>7492216Yup, he definitely checks out as being based.
>>7492215Go ahead please
>>7492308Here you go anon
>>7492350>>7492349>>7492348Oh no they actually look good. What's the site to get a set?
>>7492359Aliexpress nvm, but damn they look good.
>>7492359>>7492362These are from a local supplier but yeah I think it's the same one on AliExpress. The last 3 pics I uploaded are I think the best looking ones.
Dump over. I can't wait to get mine. Will put in my thoughts when I get them on hand if someone's interested.
>>7492397Thanks a lot anon, they look really nice, please post your thoughts once you get them
>>7492457Will do anon. Gonna update when I get em.
I wish someone would bootleg a downscaled 1:12 version. I'd sell off my official set as I really don't want 7 inch scale figures.
I can't decide between these or the cartoon version ones. I like these a lot but I was always a fan of the cartoon.
These looks good, not as good as the originals in the paint dept but they are pretty damn good bootlegs. Sculpt looks dead on. Gonna grab a set of these and the Cartoon version for sure once they inevitably come out.
I’d rather pay bootleggers than scalpers and there are no other options so I guess I’m getting these.
>>7492457I just got them and I have to say they look absolutely gorgeous on hand. Paint differences are only obvious if you know what you're looking for but otherwise they are great.
>>7493764Nice, I'm really considering getting them
>>7493834You seriously won't regret getting them anon. They are absolutely fantastic. They can even pass for original if there was no original to compare them to. However some of them may have problems when it comes to Raph's eye paint. I've seen some photos where he looks a little cross-eyed and I've seen some where he isn't. Luckily I seem to have gotten the good one as the paint is perfect on mine.
>Cheaper >Readily available >Same quality or possibly better than NECAHow do they even compete?
There is any difference between Stage Act 4 original stand and bootleg stand?
>>7494084I never bought an original stage 4 but I do have a figuarts that came with a stand and it's almost identical to some bootleg stands I bought. Some air bubbles in the arms here and there but the stands work fine. Some parts could be a bit more fragile maybe, but they get the job done. I did break one but it was my fault. Got them from this seller. https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32804173427.html?pid=808_0000_0101&spm=a2g0n.search-amp.list.32804173427&aff_trace_key=&aff_platform=msite&m_page_id=8789amp-iebMWHUKUQGZBoUSO3e9jQ1555100528631
Do you think the chinese will do pic related at some point?
>>7494201The SHF are cheap as fuck, why not get them?
>>7494202I like the neca ones more for some reason, maybe the faces and the paint job
Anyone bought the bootleg Figma Elsa yet? If so, I want to know if the eyes are still articulated even in the bootleg version. The bootleg Figma Snake’s eyes were molded into the face plates, so I want to make sure the same wasn’t done with Elsa.
Does any kind Anon have experience ordering the Movie Realization Stormtrooper bootlegs from China? I desperately want one but refuse to spend the hundred freedombucks for a legit one.
>>7492382>>7492375>>7492373these looks fucking uglyBootleggers never change. I'd prefer not having shitty figures or any figures at all than having crap like this
>>7495783Because the original doesn't look like that at all, right anon?
>>7496175>its literally visible how shitty bootleg is compared to original>he even posted a huge ass photo of original productwewi think it's pretty logicalif bootleg buyers would have non-shitty eyes that can notice imperfection they would not buy such things.
>>7496187>complains about bootleg buyers in a bootleg thread>he expects bootlegs to have the same quality as an originalAnon please, take your meds
>>7496197I wasnt complaining. i was just simply pointing out how people keep eating shit up because they are low-tier >>7495783>Bootleggers never change
>>7495783>>7496187>>7496204Ok? Still glad I have them though. They're really great and fun to play around with. They look absolutely gorgeous.
>>7495727It’s hit and miss. A guy I knew when visiting SEA was selling them and some were reasonably sturdy while others were falling apart from a gust of wind.Most of the problem is in the joints, the actual plastic and sculpt looks decent enough.
>>7496323>They look absolutely gorgeous.The sculpts are a bit softer and colors not quite right but otherwise they look fine.
>>7497351The mouth is a bit more yellow in color and Mikey's eyes are looking to the side but they are absolutely gorgeous in hand fren. I strongly recommend them.
>>7497324I actually have one, and it looks good...but yeah, the joints aren't great. You could probably improve with some glue or floor polish but I never tried.
WTF these aren't even cheap?!US $78.08 for the set of 4. Forget that noise.
>>7497473I sold a real one on eBay for $10 less than that. Just one.
>>7497473If the originals where still available at that price I'd get them but they're not so guess this is what I'm going with. Quality's pretty top notch anyway.
y'all a bunch of niggers for suporting piracy but so are playmates for doing that stupid fake scarcity shit so I guess I turn into a nigger too ooga booga where mah turtles at?
>>7497633>y'all a bunch of niggers for suporting piracyspotted the drumpfkin
>>7494889How is that snake? I’d say it’s pretty bad from the few photos I could find.
I can only find two stores selling the turtles now, guess the others got taken down?
>>7498539See for yourself>>7478180
>>7497473I was able to stack a few Ali coupons and it was like $63 for a basic set in box. $16 per figure is really not too bad. You can get them cheaper without the box. It's worth it to me as someone that grew up in peak TMNT during the 80s and couldn't buy the legit version.
Looks like the Chinese bootlegged the Revoltech Psylocke...and she looks like she’s seen some shit.
>>7506362The Horror. The Horror. The Horror.
>>7506362I will say this: much of this figure would work pretty well as a base for a custom Rachnera figure.
>>7506362>>7506371MY FUCKING SIDES
>find an AY carnage bootleg for 12 dollarsHow shit it's going to be? Last time I checked it was 20 dollars.
Don't know if it counts as a bootleg but I thought the light thing was kinda cool
What should I make of varying prices on aliexpress?
>>7511550Usually prices don't vary much. I usually go with whatever has more reviews.
>>7511746What does the A(number) on the orange rectangle over the reviews mean?The cheapest AY Carnage bootleg I've found has 41 pages of reviews but it only uses stock photos of the original except for the box.
>>7511754Idk what that number means, actually idk what number you're referring to, I don't recall seeing it. But have you checked this one? https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32906709867.html?pid=808_0000_0101&spm=a2g0n.search-amp.list.32906709867&aff_trace_key=&aff_platform=msite&m_page_id=2510amp-8oSwdUl0XpoA3ZRhLg_VCg1556224718673It has a bunch of good reviews that include pictures

>>7511801Oh that's just the buyer's rank thing, kinda like ebay. Doesn't show up on the app, that's why I don't see it. Yours has even more pic reviews, I'd just go for it, it looks like a good bootleg
heads up, looks like the chinks are using old molds and pieces to make to make bootleg 1/18 indycar diecast, so if someone is looking for a car for custom this could be a good optionhttps://aliexpress.com/store/product/Indy-Car-Series-Diecast-Model-Toy-GreenLight-1-18-Racing-Indycar-2012-Replica-White/704699_32906542389.html
Has anyone gotten a bootleg Thanos? I wanna get a Thanos that isnt almost 100$
>>7519996there are a few reviews on youtube, general consensus is that it's on the decent side in respect to bootlegs, if it's better or worse than the ML will deppend on your personal preference, the main issue qc wise is a few problems with the paint, but it souldn't fall appart in your hands if that's what you're asking
Bootleg figma Ryuko any good?
Just paid for this guy on AliExpress, let's see how he turns out. I basically want it for the head though, just wanna put it on the berserker body.
>>7493132NECA gets pretty easily screwed when it comes to bootlegs. More so since it's possible that these are from the same factory as the real thing.
>>7490704Anyone buy boot leg effects? How are they?
>>7522077I think a guy in the toku thread has some. Supposedly pretty good
Don't wanna spam the place, but the Hellboy bootleg from 1000toys is pretty damn good. Got it from Aliexpress as well.>>7533426
>>7533515Damn.. these Chinese.. I had no idea there was one, thanks anon
>>7520721Generally speaking seems to be fairly good, but there does seem to be a uniform issue around one of the shoulders having movement issues, possibly due to poor clean up of casting if mine any indication.
so I'm a bit of an expert on TMNT figs, for anyone wanting to know the quality of the neca movie bootlegs-I haven't held them in hand, but neca in general (and specifically their TMNT licenses) have been getting bootlegged from the beginning and the quality is basically 1:1. theres slight tells you can pinpoint if you have them next to authentic ones but its far from something to cry over.if you failed to get the movie sets and don't want to wait for a re-issue at gamestop/somewhere else down the line, the chinese bootlegs are good gap fillers for a decent price. the biggest complaint will be with qc paint app issues most likely, but when it comes to neca even their official products have those issues>>7492625imo the movie sets are better than the toon sets as far as turtles goshredder krang and dem footies are must haves though so it really depends on fi you want movie turtles or cartoon badguys
>>7494201its probable, but considering how available these are there's really no reason to wait around, bootlegged versions wont be dropping the price that much, theyre already 25 a piece (50 per 2 pack). if youre lucky bootlegs from china MIGHT drop the price to 15 a piece but I wouldn't hold my breath, more than likely 20 a piece, and thats -if- they wind up bootlegging themtargets just got a restock in the last week or two + neca just announced "going global" with the TMNT brand so we'll probably see another resurgence worldwide soon if your areas been dry. prices are also dropping on ebay pretty nicely and you can now get them individually for a modest price
>>7495783i bought official ones from the sdcc online run, theyre no better in person its not so bad but the photograph like shit
Does anyone have the Thriller Michael Jackson or the MGS2 Soldier?Been thinking about getting them.
>>7520721Not bad. Paint job is sloppy but articulation and sturdiness are decent. I even tested mine for lead and it came out negative.
Anyone has buy the hellboy 1000toys ko? There is a lot of them in aliexpress now
>>7534779I've been saying this in the NECA thread and some of those cultists cannot accept that NECA many bootlegs are on par with the originals as far as quality goes. Minor differences in paint but that's usually it.
>>7536203Literally 8 posts above you
>>7536611Tnx anon! I did not see that before
>>7534645>>7536163Nice. Thanks, anons.
>>7490800It's a lottery. Two of the same figures can't be vastly different. I'd say they range from awful to mediocre. You're not going to get something close to the quality of a real one.
Heads up, the Comic MAFEX Spidey has been bootlegged
Anybody have the bootleg shimakaze? Is it worth?
>>7538533This is the truth. Still satisfied with this one, though. Worth the cost to have a testbed for modifications and stuff.
>>7545773I owned the legit one and some parts felt bootleg-tier brittle with stress marks on them out of the box new. The KO could either be many times worse, or the same level. I swear official Figma offerings don't feel as good as they used to, my KLK Ryoku's back armor cracked when trying to get the stand in, and I owned it before the KOs came out.
>>7547619How much was this
>>7547619The fuck? What kinda custom bootleg is that?
>>7549267You can get 'em for under $20 on eBay and AliExpress.
>>7536111They are exactly what you'd expect, cheap. Check the archive:https://archive.nyafuu.org/toy/thread/6342590/#6368726
My bootleg rocks came in.They okay
>>7558997>That sentinel MegaManI'm really tempted to get one..
In the early '00s back when it was at its peak of popularity in the West, I saw some DBZ bootlegs in a flea market called "Dragon Pearl Fighter". From memory they were just dodgy repaints of the period Bandai-produced action figures.Only reference to them even existingI can find is this one video on YouTube.
>>7522077I have the lightning in two colors as well as the flames and the drill. They look nearly identical to the genuine article because it's very hard to fuck up a hunk of clear plastic, but they're made of a rigid plastic rather than the slightly bendy material of the legit ones, so you've gotta be careful not to scratch your figures while setting them up. Aside from that, though, they're definitely worth the savings.
>>7559009That's the D Arts Mega Man.
>>7490812shame they have already been out of stores for awhile now. same with the toon turtles (atleast I got the leo shredder pack). I have the 4 movie turtles, but i think im a bit interested in these bootlegs as well.
>>7564946>Matte finish>Sentinel stand>Sentinel face>Sentinel everything Yeah that's totally the d arts
chinks are getting creative, they made an iron spider out of the yamaguchi
Are there any bootlegs you would recommend?
>>7570554any Transformers, ML or SW Black series. KOs of Hasbro crap are always better than actual Hasbro toys anymore. Also Neca as the KOs are indistinguishable from the poor quality they make.
>>7570554Some amazing yamaguchi are nice. Magneto, wolverine, I think carnage too. Not sure about captain and venom tho
>>7570554mk 50 and kuga
>>7570628captain is good, gwen is decent, carnage is fantastic from what i've heard
Have they've bootleg'd any avengers endgame figuarts yet?
Is there a bootleg Shredder to go along with the bootleg turtles
Any bootlegs that could work as a base for pic related?
>>7492216cry more corporate bootlicking bitch.
>>7492234based means retarded, so yeah.>>7581649the only ones licking corporate cock are Trumpets, because they get their feelings hurt when rich people aren't handed more money. Too bad Randy only makes toys of celebs that hate the orange traitor.
>>7581620Well not a bootleg per say, but the old the force awakens k-mart exclusive Rey/Kylo starkiller base sets go for dirt cheap and come with good ice based ground/flooring.Or maybe a bootleg tamashii rock set or something.
>>7581881Not the background, the maid guy
>>7581620Bootleg SH Figuarts Hulk for the overall body. Some Hulk bootlegs are labeled as 'Figma' but it's just the SH Figuarts in a bootleg Figma box.
Head's up. Looks like Figma Predator has been bootlegged. Showing up on both Ebay and Aliexpress.
Anyone else got the 1000toys Hellboy bootleg? Mine came without the ball joint for the tail wondering how to replace it...
>>7583174I really want to get it but the bootleg is smaller than the real one.. idk why they did that
>>7583447Yeah it's figuarts size.
Just got a KO Figuarts IW Thor. Hes by no means fantastic, but a great stand-in since I can't find one for even remotely cheap.I got the Mk 50 Nano set 1 recently. Never could get the original MK 50. I am really trying to get the nano set mk 2 so I can get normal legs and arms and have a normal Iron man when I want. Anyone have any experience with the KO Mk 50? Specifically using his arms and legs for a non-KO mk 50?
Bootleg figma predator... Wew
anyone know if i can get a bootleg IW thanos just so my endgame thanos can have an unhelmeted look?i hear you need the back of his head which isn't included in the endgame version
Cheap-o bootleg comin' through.
Ay, is there a good bootleg deku figma
>>7590970Only one part of that is the bootleg
>>7569913This thing is a nightmare
>>7492382>>7492384Jesus Christ, someone tried to sell me this for $55
Anyone have the Hellboy bootleg? How is it? Just saw one seller around here and I liked the original but I'm not that much of a fan of the character to justify the price.
>>7598002I know there was an anon in this thread that had him. You can YouTube some reviews tho
>>7598002I had both. The bootleg is pretty good for the price. All the joints are replaced with revoltech joints, which ends up making the bootleg shorter. The internal joints in the neck and torso are non-existent, which wasn't a big deal to me until I got the real one. The paint work on the bootleg I got was a lot better than the one anon that posted pictures, which was a plus but quality may vary. All of the accessories were made of a softer, cheaper plastic than the real one. The belt was manufactured differently and there's a mold line going right in the middle of the belt buckle. I was surprised with the quality of the coat, it's only slightly cheaper feeling and the internal wiring was sewn into the coat, like the real one.
>>7598039Also adding that all of the joints were ko d of loose, but that seems to be pretty standard on all bootlegs.
>>7595975The part that's comprised of multiple animal themed robots?
>>7582214And now it looks like Figma Alien has been bootlegged on EBay and AliExpress.
>>7598039Thanks for the info man, the lack of the torso join ruins it for me, can't make action poses with it, guess I'll pass on this one.
Should I get the Genos Dasin figure?I love how it looks online, but am worried he might be loose feeling.Also does he scale well with Polynian / Figuarts?
>>7520953How was he?
>>7599154If ya like the looks, go for it. The figure is exactly as he looks in your pic. The articulation is more Figuarts than figma, but mine isn't floppy at all. For height tho, he seems a bit tall compared to other lines.
>>7599154I have Genos, he's pretty nice. No loose joints at all
>>7599163Legs were loose, but like I said I just wanted it for the heads, the arms looks good as well though.
