TaralenAre you sure figure_shop sells bootlegs? They put "Authentic" On their item listings and they can get in serious trouble with ebay if they lie.

I've found that there are many many things being sold as "authentic" on ebay that aren't. I've also reported many things that never got removed because ebay couldn't care less as long as they are raking in the $$...

I Am Not Too Sure On What To Say To This? Boot Leg? Or Just Scam...?

This Is The Item I Bought [ext link ]

And This Is What I Received....

I hope you filed a complaint and got a full refund...

Item in Question: [ext link ] Stated that it's not authentic.


I always appreciate the honesty in admitting that the items are not authentic, versus the people who sell fakes and swear up and down that it is authentic...

Item in Question: [ext link ] This surely isn't authentic. And the other items on there are pretty much all bootlegs. or so do i think.

(not sure if this is already on the list, but i didn't see this there)

Item in Question: [ext link ] All the figures that he is selling are pretty much bootlegs.

EDIT: Sorry I didn't notice the longer list on this forum. Only checked the list in the front page thing and found out on the loger list that these two are already on the list! >.< Sorry~

Yeah, that old list is at least a year old because the owner of the club no longer moderates it. I made this list to keep up so people won't have to keep posting the same things over and over :p

Item in question: [ext link ]

The picture the seller used was taken from a wholesale website that sells bootlegs. Seller said it was authentic, I bought the figure then requested pictures just in case. The pictures wasn't really clear but the box did not have a pierrot sticker and the figure looked fake compared to pictures of authentic figure. Price is around half of what most seller are selling for.

This seller has some mixed sets that include authentic and bootleg figures. I purchased one such set from him as he assured me they were all "real" before I purchased them. I contacted him about it and he got very defensive and started accusing me of being ignorant and abusing the ebay system, he went on to say "There is nothing worse then a collector who doesn't know what he is collecting". This guy is all class lol. Steer clear.

I've added him for now, but do you have a pic or two of the figures you got? I'm interested in the difference of quality between the two.

I haven't bought anything from this seller, but his prices are way too goo to be true, and most of his pictures are taken from somewhere else or look like pretty obvious bootlegs. Beware.

Hello, new here
I'd like to submit these sellers/items for review as I don't consider my own senses sharp enough to detect whether or not they're bootlegs
At first I thought I was just lucky to find low prices, but then I found a lot of listings from people on the bootleg seller list for around the same price
Though I don't like to discriminate, the fact that they're all shipped from China or Hong Kong heightens my paranoia

Edit: is there a rule for hiding external links? beacause i have no idea how

Those are definitely suspicious and are bootlegs, thank you for alerting them here! I also believe that one of those sellers is the same person with two accounts (the whole 'chu' thing usually isn't just a coincidence). I'm not sure what you mean by 'hiding' them besides using a spoiler tag though lol.

Wow, THOSE are bootlegs? I think I still have some ways to go in order to detect fakes 'cause those look impressive for bootlegs. I know the price is kind of a giveaway, but man, the quality of those figures look near-identical to authenticity (at least the Unlimited Blade Works version does).
More than a thousand problems. Less than a thousand solutions.

baldvr (Il y a 6 ans)If I'm not mistaken this one is the same as esthertool and crystalquick:

Name of Seller or ID: cherrytab
Seller's Store Link: (ext link)
Item in Question: (ext link) Same price, pics, description and everything else in esthertool and crystalquick stores.


Well, I've ordered 2 Revoltech figures from cherrytab that are currently "In Transit" according to the tracking, so I'll keep you guys updated on the outcome of that. I also worry about being scammed on eBay - this is my first purchase from eBay in a long time - so my heart dropped a little when I saw that username on this list. Wish me luck!

EDIT - June 28, 2012: I got the two items I ordered today - 10 days after purchase. They are authentic and exactly what I ordered, so for what it's worth this seller was at least 100% trustworthy for my purchase.

Does it matter if a seller discloses that the item is or may be fake? I found a seller with 2 for sale.
