    The price should be an indicator. I've never ordered figurines, but I have ordered plenty of products that ship from other countries. I usually look at the cost, reviews, and country of origin to judge if it's going to be garbage or not. As a personal rule of thumb, it's rare that I'll order something that has zero ratings, unless I really want the product.

First check out the seller's profile and location. If they are in China or the figure is very cheap, it is most likely a bootleg. Ask the seller if it is an officially licensed product. If they refuse to answer you know not to buy, and if they say yes you have them by the balls if they lied I have bought figures off Amazon safely before, just do your homework before choosing a seller so you don't get ripped off.

lets say for example

its a 1/8 scale & bout 8-9 inches tall. i would say this one is approximately 800 grams or more. i tried japanese imports via winning some bids. theyre a lot cheaper in price but shipping kills the deal. 1/7 or 1/8 scale approximately costs $20 or more on shipping. even a big sized & cheaper prize items costs less than shipping

this said it ships from japan but im still kinda skeptical
