Bootleg (fake) vs original (authentic)

GSC has posted yet another bootleg comparison of some Nendoroid. The featured Nendoroid are: Nendoroid Kaname Madoka, Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Absolute HMO Edition, and Nendoroid Dead Master, versus their bootleg counterparts. Out of those three, I personally have difficulties to distinquish between Nendoroid Kaname Madoka and her bootleg version. Well, gotta be careful to purchase Nendoroid from untrusted stores. XD

Anyway, feel free to visit the source pages for more pics and info (in Japanese XD) about the comparison. ^^

Previously, we have already had a comparison between Nendoroid Hatsune Miku and her bootleg counterparts. For today’s post, I would like to highlight some popular bootleg Nendoroid out there in a gallery of pics. Yep, I just found a couple of photos showing the fake Nendoroid in various pose. Although most of them did not show the details, they are generally good enough as references before purchasing the real deal.

Anyway, the post is going to be divided into two parts, with the first part featuring bootleg Nendoroid from Vocaloid – mostly Hatsune Miku though. See the gallery after the break. ^^

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. (-_-“”)
