Those aren't bootlegs, since there's no original/official figure to bootleg
They'd be 3rd party
>>
In terms of paint it seems to chip off easier on bootlegs but I've never had a problem with bootlegs breaking or anything. But every bootleg I've ever touched stinks like toxic plastic chemicals and makes me dizzy. These things can't be safe. People make a big deal out of lead paints but I've personally tested a few for lead and never got a positive result. But the PVC manufacturing process is apparently toxic as fuck and the plastic itself can potentially be dangerous. I'm pretty sure bootlegs will give me brain damage in older age.
>>
>>7158856
>I've never had a problem with bootlegs breaking or anything
I, on the other hand, have. I've bought a handful of bootleg Figmas over the years just for fun and in more than one case, things just break abruptly. No stress marks, no stiffness, no warning whatsoever, just suddenly the thing is in two pieces in your hand while posing (or in one memorable case, when I just picked it up off the shelf).

Any comparisons you could give or comment on their quality?

I recently got 3 bootlegs.

1) SHF TDK Batman - Crap. Good sculpting. Alternate head has poorly painted teeth but that actually makes him look better because it makes his lips more obvious. Left leg assembled backwards. Weak tolerances all around. I fixed up most of the issues but his arm still likes to fall off. His price was cheap but still not worth it.

Mafex Flash: Crap-ish. Terrible unmasked head. Left arm is assembled backwards. Torso missing the cup to hold the ball-joint for the neck. Again, issues fixed. Now the right arm sort of wants to fall off and I'm iffy on the neck. But otherwise okay for the good tolerances. He'd be decent if his price was the same as the bootleg Bats above.

SHF DX Body-kun - Decent. No consistency in plastic color. It was a mistake to pay extra for the DX version. But otherwise, good tolerances all around. Same price as the bootleg Mafex Flash. If he was the same price as the Bats above, I might have ordered a second one.

Just got bootleg Revoltech Carnage for 18 bucks shipped from ebay. It is on par with recent Revoltach KO's and is pretty damn decent for 18 bucks. Comes with clicky Revol joints and the paint and sculpt look very good except for the eyes. The eyes are bit sloppy not sure if that is a problem with the original. Also his torso was on backwards but I just twisted it into correct position. Glad I saved my self at least 50 bucks off an original.
>>
>>7164628
Seems like in the past 6 or 7 years bootlegs have gotten seriously great, at least ever since those NECA TMNT bootlegs. I've bought a few different bootlegs and they've definitely saved me money. Of course they can be fairly inconsistent and I'd recommend doing your homework before you buy a bootleg. But if you're a poorfag they can honestly be a godsend. Like
>>7158856
said though they should probably be bought with some degree of caution. Fucky Hong Kong shops manufacturing sketchy bootleg toys aren't going to have the same regulations and safety measures a legitimate manufacturer is going to have.

>>
>>7164683

The pegs that hold the toes and the jaw in are longer than the original for sure. The eyes are a bit sloppier and paint in general is probably a bit sloppier than a legit. Anyone one know what other differences there are? It looks pretty good compared to my other legit AY's.

Bootleg Ultimate Jungle Hunter. Has some paint issues but like most Neca Bootlegs not far off from the original. The accessories actually look really good although you can tell they seem a little brittle. Nothing is crumbling or broken and seems pretty solid fir a KO.

the original is pretty shiny. The big issues with the knock off are the neck doesn't look to sit very deep in the chest like the official which fucks with proportions some, also the official has a subtle but incredibly striking slight metallic eye paint which causes the white portions of his eyes to pop like crazy in photos similar to the logo on official Air jordans and knock offs.

>pic official
>>
>>7167218
why... why would you buy a knockoff for $28 when the legit one is like $5 more if that... I picked up the exact figure, but legit from a FYE store for $30.
>>
>>7163432
Like all Figma bootlegs, joints can be iffy. Some can be loose, some too tight, and some with a decent amount of needed resistance. Peg holes can sometimes be shallow, making joints ‘stick out’ a little in some spots. Overall though, the horses are okay for bootlegs save that getting them to stand on their own is difficult due to the aforementioned loose joints here and there. But it comes with a stand, so that can be remedied. If you need a 1/12 horse that won’t break the bank then look no further. As for fodder for customs, also good as a base depending on your ideas. I plan to turn mine into an entelodont.
>>
>>7167254

Because legit ones are no longer 30 and go for rape prices unless you are lucky. Same with Ultimate City hunter. They are getting re released though.

Dont mind shelling out for a 28 dollar bootleg since these are long gone around me anywhere retail and online they go for over 120. Especially with ebay and paypal buyer protection. Potentially you can get them for free if you feel like being an asshole. If the KO is trash i get a refund. Since its decent Ill enjoy it until my re release gets here. Its 28 bucks im not going to miss it and im getting my moneys worth.
>>
>>7167253

Neck is the same exact piece so most likely a tolerance, joint or user issue. The eyes are extremely sloppy on the KO that would really be the main difference that I can see and It looks like the use a lighter shade of red for some of the parts.
>>
>>7164603
>I've seen pics of the kirby, some look fine but others have derpy eyes. No way to tell before it arrives
Do bootleg sellers refund you in cases like that?
>>
>>7167304

If you notify seller you are not satisfied and provide a legitimate reason they will usually always try and work it out with you so you are. If not then you can escalate up to Ebay/Paypal and they usually always side with the buyer.

>>7167344

The Gwens were pretty bad paint wise. After Gwen the all started getting better though and that has held through with Carnage. I bet Batman if they attempt it is a mess though. I don't see how they can pull the KO of that and make it work.
>>
>>7167347

Yeah that's pretty bad. Although compare a KO magneto to a legit one and it's a completely different story. You can't even tell the difference on most of the parts.
>>
>>7167344
>>7167347
This is a real bad batch
I picked up a Revo Gwen a few months after the official release and she looks much better than these

Guess I'm getting bootleg Magnetto. Worst come to worst, I just tell ebay they're selling bootlegs. I did that do get a bootleg Megaman.exe to replace a lost part.
>>
>>7167374

I'd agree with this but swap Venom and Gwen. Venom has an issue with bad joints but if you replace the torso joint with the extra one included with Wolverine or wherever he is fine.
>>
>>7167344
>>7167346
paint is not good, but the posing and makes it way worse than what i've seen in other pictures, also the hood is backwards
>>
>>7167376

I have one and the only really weak part is the stand which will probably break with how heavy the figure is. Everything else is top notch quality even for a KO. Even the cape has nice joints and even accurate colors. His shading is even decent throughout (not great but decent). The faces look spot on. You can usually find him for around 20 -25. He's def worth that.
>>
>>7167378
it's more of a personal preference, i"d rather have minor paint details than lose joints, objectively they are around the same level

Some anons have bought lead-paint test kits from home improvement stores to see if there was any lead in the paint of their bootleg toys (myself included). There's a few youtube videos of people testing lego minifigs and the test turning up negative. I tested bootlegs of the Revo Jizai skeleton, Figma horse, and Figma Ryuko, and all turned up negative. Again, don't put them in your mouth, wash your hands after handling before touching your face or eating, and any chemicals should be washed off in the process.

How are bootleg nendos in general?
Just got my first official one and I'm impressed with how much articulation they fit in such a small package. But with how tiny they are, I don't think I could justify the $50 price tag again.
Seems like it would be easy for parts to fit together wonky in a bootleg though, not to mention the tiny paint apps.

>>7168764
I own three and they're all terrible clumps of plastic with parts that don't fit, missing accessories, and terrible paint.
>>
>>7168746
corporate whore bitches are often up their own ass over bootlegs because "they're not legal" and no other reason. They pretend official releases are always superior, which in the case of Transformers, is no longer true. KOs are often better than official TFs now. Even "crap" ones like THF Soundwave are still no worse than the overpriced kiddie crap HasTomy makes. Morons think that high price tag = quality. Go ahead, drop $200 on a fucking leader class and tell yourself it's a collectible, that makes it real.

Now if only other KO makers sunk in as much effort.
>>
>>7169054
Are unlicensed third party companies still considered bootlegs? I always imagine leggers as a few Chinese guys working out of a basement, trying to pass off their plastic turd as the official company's product. Most third party transformers are their own company with actual production quality though.

I just bought one actually.

The paint job and sculpt is good for the price tho.

I can attest the YR Venom bootleg is good, especially for what you're paying. The only issues i had with it were joints that were too loose, but that seems to be something the official figure shares too, especially with the abcrunch.
Point is, it seems to have a better balance between price and quality than the official one, but if you get one from a bad batch you're fucked.

The Chinamen bootleggers thing they're getting smarter. Anyone else notice an ever-increasing number of "US Sellers" that are obviously Chinese-run accounts selling knockoffs out of of the US? Usually seems like Cali, or Texas.

You can usually tell because of the horrible broken Engrish, and if they post legit pics, they tend to try to wash the colors out, or make the pic dark so you can't see the obviously off-colors and the fact that its a cheap fake.
>>
>>7190178
really not a rule, I've bought from plenty of legitimate people using "US Seller" in their ad. it's something people do to get more attention, I assume because it means cheaper shipping
just be cautious of literally anyone you're buying from on ebay. check their location, reviews, and ffs don't buy anything using stock photos

Theoretically could you coat them with a good clear coat and essentially put a barrier over the plastic/paint?
>>
>>7192974
In theory yes but I doubt it's the paint that's the problem and more likely the plastic and its manufacturing process that makes bootlegs toxic, in which case I doubt clear coating will do all that much. But if you plan to paint bootlegs at all make sure to use paints that won't have issues. I've tried lacquer paints on bootlegs and they dry much lighter than what they should, so some sort of chemical reaction was taking place. I'd advise avoiding lacquer or enamel but acrylic seems perfectly fine and will be the least likely to have a weird reaction.

Reposting from the Aliexpress Genos thread because no answer.
Is there any noticeable difference between bootleg producers? Does it just vary from figure to figure or is one name generally better than the others?

>>7204780
It's a trading platform like aliexpress/amazon/ebay etc. meaning there'll be both legit sellers and lies. Payment is done through Alipay(Chinese "PayPal") and they'll hold it until you release it or open a dispute, so there's some buyer protection there. Helps if you know Chinese, Google Translate is another place you can get fucked from.

I don't know, but judging solely by the quality of the Batman I got I'd say he's worth a gamble. This figure doesn't even have a hint of that nasty bootleg chinese factory chemical smell and the plastic quality is solid. If I hadn't already known it was a bootleg I honestly never would have guessed.

Not sure if appropriate for the thread, but I didn't saw any other bootleg threads.

These B-Daman are pretty obviously bootlegs I think, they have chinese all over them and they're selling 2 for the equivalent of 8 US dollars, I was wondering if anyone had any experience with them, since B-Daman are toys that get quite a bit of stress put into them, and i'm concerned that chinesium might not quite be able to take the beating.

>>7212745
It's just 8 dollars man, just buy em and report back

>>7212769
Gotta pay an extra 10 U$ for shipping, and at that point it's like half of my monthly salary, tho i'm def considering it, out of curiosity if nothing else.

I have no experience with Cross Fight bootlegs, but I bought Battle B-Daman ones back in the day. Cheap, brittle plastic and stickers that wouldn't stick.

>Cheap, brittle plastic

This is my main concern, these things have to take a lot of stress.

Do you happen to know if the ones from Taiwan and Hong Kong that they sell on Ebay are legit?
>>
>>7213032
Send links. If the seller is in China and using just stock photos I'd be weary of them.
>>
>>7213046
Here's a couple of examples of what i'm talking about:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/GENUINE-JAPAN-TAKARA-TOMY-CROSS-FIGHT-B-DAMAN-STARTER-OFFICIAL/122488190920?hash=item1c84dd77c8:m:mGTBbUPvZDRrWkV3StGH8Ug:rk:4:pf:0#shpCntId&shqty=1#shId

>>
>>7213047

Stock images from China ... First seller has a bunch of listings for fake Beyblades, though also some real ones. I'd say that's a gamble.

Second seller doesn't seem to be selling any noticeably fake stuff. Saw some good feedback for him in a Transformers forum, too. Can't vouch for them personally, though.
>>
>>7213077
I noticed something similar, didn't think to check other products of the sellers tho (not like I could tell fake beyblades apart anyway).

I'll have to think about it.
>>

https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.14.11.64c345b5J58n5g&id=569995031900

This TaoBao listing explicitly says it's the KO version. The description say they are simplified and average quality, so yeah you could probably expect brittle plastic.

>>7213077
>>7213116
The 1st seller is from HK and there's a distinction between HK and Mainland China sellers. He is mostly using stock images though so it does seem unsafe.

Official Beyblades/B-daman and other non-TF TakaraTomy stuff sold in Hong Kong come with this sticker, Mani Ltd is the HK distributor.
>>
>>7213154
I really appreciate the help and the interest man! Thank you, all that information is going to be massively useful for me, since i'd like to get quite a few of these and I can't read any asian language.

So just to clarify, if it's in Chinese and it doesn't have that sticker like the ones >>7212745 here, then it's a bootleg right? I wasn't entirely sure if it was chinese writing, I was thinking the whole time that maybe it could be korean, or some weird coincidental japanese with no hiragana.
>>
>>7213185
Hold on about that. There's Taiwanese version with Chinese packaging...

...and Korean Sonokong versions with Korean packaging.
>>
>>7213185

For Beyblade and B-Daman, the biggest tells are the logos on the box. If it doesn't have a Takara Tomy, Sono Kong/Young Toys (South Korea) or Hasbro logo it's a knockoff. There are other regional distributors who might slap their own sticker on the box (Funskool in India does this), but you should still usually see one of the above.

For example, >>7212745 is a pretty obvious KO, styled after Takara Tomy's Japanese box design. Their logo's been replaced by that "NEW" tag. The main B-Daman logo itself is in English despite the majority of the box's text being in some Asian script.

Most telling is the bizarre "Drive Garuburn" subtitle attached to every product. That's just a single specific toy lol.
>>
>>7213194
God I love Sonokong. Helped me complete a lot of my collection when the prices of the Hasbro versions had gotten too high.

>>7213192
>>7213194
>>7213195
>>7213202
Well, I guess it was a given that a local seller in this shithole would have a knockoff, at least now i'll be able to identify them easier.

Have these gotten slightly more popular over the last year or something btw? There's a ton of them up on Ebay now, last time I got interested in them there weren't nearly any, I might see if I pick up a couple, at least on Ebay if they happen to be knockoffs and the description says they aren't I'll be able to get my money back.

Wish there was a proper database for all the models.

>>
>>7214509
You can see the small dark blue splotch on his chest. There's a larger one on the backside of his right upper arm. It doesn't scrape off easily at all so paint quality and general application seems perfectly fine. Front side of his trunks were a little light on paint but that took a while to even notice and nothing a small touch up didn't fix. A very small bit of yellow from the belt is bleeding down to the trunks but you really have to be inspecting to notice it. The stuff that matters doesn't have any noticeable problems though. Face and cowl are spot on, painted perfectly, and the boots and gauntlets look great. Bat logo is clean too. Very comparable to an official release.

Sorry sorry. Forgot about this thread. Anyways here’s a pic. I’ll post more in a second.

I’m aware someone posted this bootleg hunter and it looks a lot bette than mine. Still I fucking love my hunter.

Joints in the upper extremities are loose and the hands easily come off. It’s difficult to have him pose with the saw cleaver extended.

Joints in the lower extremities are stiff and aren’t loose at all.

Paint is terrible but that can be fixed.

On the topic of bootlegs, I also purchased tracer. Out of all of the bootlegs I purchased, she’s the worst when it comes to being loose. If I simply tap her, she will fall apart. She fell apart many times on her own. Her arms and legs fall apart all the time. Her neck is fucking huge.

Aside from that, the paint is well done and I do enjoy one of her faces. She’s smooth as fuck too.

How do these bootlegs get made? Do they use the same factory that made the original and just have low quality control? Are they using the molds that got worn out?
>>
>>7217153
No idea, but just a couple of years ago this level of accuracy would've been science fiction.
I imagine it'll become quite an issue for some of the OG Companies in the future.
>>
>>7217153
some leight factories instead of changing the molds after finishing their daily quota (which takes a couple of hours) just keep making the same figures with the same materials, and lower quality control (as far as we now that's the best explanation for the higher quality of tha AY revos) and also sell the one that don't pass qc for small details, others use the same original molds but cheap out on qc and materials (e.g figuarts)and in other cases there are factories dedicated to making bootlegs with lower quality molds and materials (e.g figmas) at least that's what i've learned in these threads, maybe another anon has more info
>>
>>7217240

Sounds about right. What I want to really know is what the fuck is going on with the AY bootlegs and how the sculpts are so accurate practically being identical. It makes sense they are just using the same molds. Seems like they would have done something about it though as they have just been getting better with every release.

As I recall the Neca TMNT bootlegs were the ones that broke the mold, if you'll pardon the expression. I remember everyone freaking out about how amazing these things were for bootleg figures at the time. I don't remember bootlegs ever having as wide of a reach as these guys did.
I hear the newer bootlegs of these aren't as good as the older ones. Anyone know why exactly? Mold degradation obviously but anything else in particular? Was thinking of picking up a set.
>>

>>7217240
Contractors making extra off the side is one way.

Another way is by stealing the CAD. It may not be the toy's design CAD, it can be the mold's CAD or even the prototyping CAD, skimmed off during various stages of production at various sub-contractors.

You could also reverse-engineer a toy, this requires the most effort. The thing is, the tools you need to reverse engineer something are the same tools you use to measure and QC. That means almost all mold-tooling workshops have the capabilities to reverse-engineer a product.

update: just got home, my phone is dead and the lighting in my house isn't great so i'll take pictures tomorrow
overall i can just add to what other anons have said, the figure feels solid, no loose joints, little tight out of the box but after playing with it for a few minutes everything feels great, paint is clean overall.
since nothing is perfect, there were 2 details to note, both on the left shoulder: the the joint was cracked on the ball, but it was an easy fix since it came with 3 extra joints, the second and big one is that the left pauldron is missing, but still, for 13 bucks it's not a big deal for me

This counts as more of a 3rd party, but since there's no thread for it, I'll just talk about it here.
I got my Genos in. Genos' design works so much better for the articulation of these guys. Shoulder pads block more of the ugliness of the arm swivel and butterfly-ish joint.
I don't know what it is about the pants that make that kind of leg articulation less ugly, but it does.
Only gripes are that a wrist was a little loose and that the joints in the arms had thick excess lubricant I had to clean out with a Q-tip.
Paint is alright overall with the arms being surprisingly well painted with a solid silver paint. Decals were applied nicely and are very clean.
The apron is also a nice little addition to my ever growing accessory pile.

Good luck with it anon. I've really enjoyed mine. I have a few bootlegs in my collection ranging from Marvel Legends to TMNT and that Batman is easily the best of the lot.

Does anybody know if the Movie Revo joints are the same as Revoltech joints? Her ears, tail (I guess), and wrists use the same joints. I can buy fuckloads of Revoltech joints on eBay but I won't bother if they aren't going to be small enough
