Unlicensed Figures?

NemsEngelAceSasuNemsEngelAceSasu6 kuukautta sittenAsk MFC
Hello MFC^^

Recently, due a collector adding some unlicensed figures i stumbeld across some i kinda would like to have?

Like this Boa, she's like the one Boa i always wanted but MH never did. *_*

Or this Snake for POP Boa. It looks so lovely. :3

But maybe a bit more than Boa i would like Thatch. Given Ace is my favorite, i just want him for him? T_T

But i am not sure yet. I do not support Bootlegs, but those are nor "really" bootlegs, since they are not copied. And honestly, Megahouse POP line is getting really bad, all those awful proportioned bikini figures. -.-


So i kinda wanted to know, what other people think? Would you buy a unlicensed figure? If not why not?

Unlicensed is a whole different game to bootlegging.

Look at the Transformers figure community. Third parties time and time again bring things to the table that Hasbro and Takara just don't. The reach deep into the lore and pull out characters who would never see the light of day, bring interesting takes on old characters and even straight out do the licensed figures on more than one occasion.

From a moral standpoint - you aren't supporting the owners of the license. You aren't giving them any money. But if they aren't making what you want to buy from them and someone else is? Well, vote with your wallet.

Nearly all western doujin is unlicensed and people buy it anyway so sure. It's the same as buying from artist alley in any convention I'd go to.

noobcollector23 (4 kuukautta sitten) #23763878i suppose your cravings were satisfied the moment you unboxed.. lol it happens to people, unfortunately (or fortunately) not me..
I agree that boa is the best from that line (tho i'm more of a battle pose diorama person so i've got the jacksdo one-full set and i'm looking forward to getting the model stars one), i prefer mingo's version by FOC more than mpalace's, and yeah kuma is definitely out of place..but imo mihawk isn't so bad either, the scene does exist and more or less people know about him and the boat, and if you take the fact that there arent any decent mihawk resin statue/diorama out there, this could easily be the best one (if you know of a decent one please lmk haha)

Sorry I was too hurry that I make my point confusing I meant to say "Unboxing an unlicensed figures give my less pleasure and enjoyment than from a licensed figures" ,I think maybe because of the lack of detail in some places inwhich those from licensed company are overall perfect no particular flaw and every part look like they're given attention to unlike Unlicensed that they like to focus and ignore some part. That feeling when you unboxing a 16000円 figurine and you tilt your head around looking under ,behind and you see all that details ,different materials they put in there something like that.

Yeah that FOC's look promising ,right now I like just looking at them (picture) all the new released, the unpainted but I don't think I'll order them anymore. I'm broke and too busy collecting shoujo figures lol ,I started collecting with shounen and ended up with shoujo haha what a life .

tasser (4 kuukautta sitten) #23726162For me, Kuma and Mihawk are kinda "random" randomly sitting anywhere especially Mihawk in his boat? what? compare to Boa's iconic snake throne he's awkward.
also felt unboxing and owning them gave me less pleasure and enjoyment?.. I dunno how should I put this in words.

tasser (6 kuukautta sitten) #21773756i got two of these unlicensed figure both from the company mentioned up there , I'd say I'm pretty satisfied with them though with feeling a bit guity since Megahouse got both of them scaled (I got Boa(POP) though )but for me these two figure resemble the characters perfectly that in this case MH ones didn't so I decided to get them . The sculpt,the paint are almost perfect with a bit of some place that could have been better but for its huge size this is something to be expected ?,to be able to get my favorite characters in such poses with same POP scale to go with the rest of my POP OP collection it worth ...for me, STILL I DON'T SUPPORT unlicense but it's ok to give it a try .

WindsorSeven (6 kuukautta sitten) #21761176What series have you bought from?
Same. Been eyeing that Bastion pretty hard, and I saw an AMAZING Zarya (too bad I don't play her).


I bought stuff from Naruto and Touken Ranbu mostly! I've also helped others buy some Neon Genesis Evangelion stuff and a couple of other series.


Regarding Overwatch figures, I actually bought a Genji one. :P Those are just mass-produced PVC figures. While the quality isn't HORRIBLE, the only reason I would buy one of those is to repaint them into something more acceptable. The figures we're discussing here are resin GKs, completely different in quality (and often scale).

The-Hurricane (6 kuukautta sitten) #21737282Oh look, my niche. :>
Okay, as somebody who has bought some of these types of figures (not from One Piece, but from the same companies), I would say if you like them, ABSOLUTELY go for it. I recognize around 80% of the names in the watermarks here and everything I do know of them, I know they're decent. If you need help finding and/or ordering any of these things, I can help you via PM. Sometimes it's easier and cheaper to get them straight from the source versus like on AliExpress or something.
That Marco figure especially looks pretty fucking boss. What ones are you sold on? :)

What series have you bought from?

shinhawk (6 kuukautta sitten) #21722927I'm kinda eyeing some of the unofficial Overwatch figures mainly because there isn't much in the way of figures for Overwatch currently. I know there are nendoroids coming, but those aren't really my thing.

Same. Been eyeing that Bastion pretty hard, and I saw an AMAZING Zarya (too bad I don't play her).

Mauxjedi (6 kuukautta sitten) #21718175Hm... I'd say that those are 85% likely to be bootleg. Coming from china, no brand in the description, misspelled name, pretty sure these are either bootlegs, or they just won't ever ship. I've had both things happen to me when ordering from china, I just don't risk it anymore.

Alright, thanks for the input!
