Bootleg Warning: Nendoroid Kirino Kousaka (Good Smile Company)

Thu 2012/12/06 16:31 JST
There are currently bootleg versions of Good Smile Company's figures being sold on online auction and marketplace websites.

These bootleg figures are made illegally based off the original versions without permission from Good Smile Company, and hence we unfortunately cannot offer any support for these bootleg figures. There are also many cases where these bootleg figures still feature the official logos of Good Smile Company or the companies we distribute for, however these logos are also not used with any permission. Always take care when buying goods online.

- Note -

Below is one example of a bootleg figure, please note that is is only one possibility. You should always be on the look out for anything suspicious.
Also note that there can be bootlegs of various figures, not just the examples shown on this website.

Left: Bootleg Version / Right : Official Version


● Copyright on Stand

The copyright is missing from the bootleg version, and the writing is on the reverse side.

● Expression Parts: Joint Area

The joint connects into a separate part on the official version, whereas the entire expression is a single mold on the bootleg version.

● Arm Joints

The joints on the official version are left as a skin color, while they are painted on the bootleg version.

● Torso Part: Upper Pattern

The official version has a circular pattern at the top of the torso, which isn't found on the bootleg version.

● Fulcrum Part

The prop part of the stand is fitted with a joint on the official version, which isn't found on the bootleg version.

● Neck Area Paintwork

The official version correctly separates the areas that should be skin-colored. The bootleg version paints the entire area a single color.

● Lower Body Paintwork

The official version correctly separates the panties from the body area. The bootleg version is painted completely white.

● Expression Parts: Eyes

The bootleg version is mostly black with a very crude gradient.
