By popular demand, we are going to start a new series of articles with the topic: Bootleg vs Genuine, where we will do a side-by-side comparison of bootleg and genuine version of a particular Nendoroid. ^^

For starter, we will compare bootleg and genuine version of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku., one of the most widespread bootleg Nendoroid. No, this is not the old/usual bootleg one in which you could easily recognize it simply by looking at her expression, as this pic show:

The one featured in this article is slightly different than the bootleg you see at the pic above. I guess it is a new bootleg variant of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku. (-_-“”)

Well then, let’s get into the comparison, shall we? ^^

Before I start with the comparison pics, allow me to explain our method. Well, in fact I do not own a bootleg Nendoroid Hatsune Miku. The one used in this article is owned by a Nendonesian named Greywind. Yes, all of the bootleg photos are credited to him. ^^

Anyway, since both of us could not meet each other for some reason, we agreed that Greywind would take a photos of the bootleg Miku first, then I would do the same with the genuine Miku, with some additional adjustments to the camera angle too. ^^

Well then, here you go:

The last comparison pics of Miku’s boxes concludes our first Bootleg vs Genuine article. Summarizing the whole post, here are some general characteristics of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku’s bootleg:

  • A lot of glossy area on the body and hair
  • Lousy painting and sculpting could be easily spotted
  • Stand base without proper copyright – only “made in China” is printed there

Hopefully this article could give you insight regarding the existence and characteristics of bootleg/fake Nendoroid Hatsune Miku. ^^

Well then, what do you think, Nendonesian? As usual, critics, comments, and suggestions are welcome. Thanks to Greywind for providing the pics of bootleg/fake Miku. ^^

Note: If you have a bootleg Nendoroid that you wanted to be made into a comparison article, kindly drop us a mail (nendonesia[at]gmail.com) along with some photos of it. If you have both the genuine and bootleg version of a particular Nendoroid, you could also contribute by sending us the comparison pics, and we will post it here to let other Nendonesian knows about its characteristics. ^^
