  • I guess the silvery sheen of the bootleg's hair looks okay? Everything else, though--blech.

    FigyourEd4 kuukautta sitten#77277049Oof, those side by side comparisons were just painful to see.
    I can't even imagine what it felt like taking those photos and doing this write up.
    Great job!


    Usually there's a decent amount of laughter and wtf. Though annoyance can definitely creep in if the bootleg is falling apart and rolling over, which thankfully wasn't much of an issue with this one.
    As I own the original for anything Official vs Bootleg, I get the comforting thought I can yeet the bootleg after I'm done with it. Currently they're all still lurking in my dining room (where I take the photos).

    That indeed she does! Not sure if she's gonna though.

    D_A_R4 kuukautta sitten#77235356I'm really hoping there might be a re-release. I saw the sun-tan version up for pre-order at a german shop not too long ago, with a release date in july or august I think. I'm not sure if it was just a mistake or only a few figures though.

    I'm not sure if any of the companies that distribute via Native have done re-releases, or at least I'm not currently aware of any. Quick check would support this, but I wasn't being very thorough. Native store did do an old stock clearout recently though (but I couldn't get in on that as they don't ship to me. Was one figure I may've tried to order one way or another, but it was out of stock by the time I visited the page).

    If you're wanting to know if a figure re-releases, I'd recommend clicking the changelog bell on the MFC page for the figure. If the figure info changes, you'll get notified (things that have been released very rarely update unless there is a re-release, so notifications shouldn't be spammy).

    If the German retailer got hold of more than one unit, might be a distributor found some stock in a lost corner or they've released units they were holding as replacements (I suspect that's what Native's sale was about), or a retailer went bust and sold their stock to someone else. Isn't a re-release.

    tharglet4 kuukautta sitten#77235305Thanks! Yeah, getting stuff Native post-release is a bit of a nightmare, and this one particularly went up in the aftermarket iirc. I did think about also getting the suntan one, as I do like the suntanned skin colour, but overall I didn't like it as much so decided to save my money.
    Hope you find her for a reasonable price one day!

    D_A_R4 kuukautta sitten#77235268I always like seeing these comparisons. Once again a very interesting article. Thanks!
    I really hope I can find the original for a good price one day, cause I really like the design. I like the colors on this one a lot more than on the sun tan version.
