I went to Beijing two years ago and it seemed to me that there weren't a lot of places to purchase anime products. There were some little kid stores that sold Naruto/One Piece merchandise but that was about it.

People who buy bootlegs can rott in hell. If you can't afford the original, don't fcukin buy it.

And bootlegs ALWAYS look way worse than the original.


I think it depends, I would have no problem buying bootleg products when the official products were made in some sweat shop to begin with.





Great for you. Only increases the costs for those who don't, eh?


Wow, never thought of it that way......

It is great that you are rich and can afford any and everything. But don't tell people to go to hell just because they buy bootleg stuff sometimes they just can't afford it... and want something related, people start small then it grows to bigger and better stuff.



Where's the logic in your statement? Why waste your money on bootlegs in the first place if you want to buy originals at some point?

And btw I wouldn't consider myself rich and tell ppl whatever the fcuk I want.

When I started thinking about buying figures like 2 months ago, I was insecure of buying cheap bootlegs or buying prize figures since I can't afford buying the scale figures which are usually over $100.

I decided to buy used prize figures imported from Japan. Each of them costed me around $10-20.
I also could grab these 2 scale figures for amazing prices:
Alter Panty for $50


Alpha Omega Yami for $41



What I'm trying to say is that instead of paying 15 bucks for a bootleg, you can buy used prize figures which to me they don't look bad at all.
If you look more deeply in the web you can also find used scale figures for half the sales price.

I also recommend using myfigurecollection.com to see if there's a bootleg counterpart of the figure you want.

Also did you know when stores/ web stores they have already brought the product to display their products already in store/web by that time they would have already supported the industry before we even go our hands on the product preorders are just a way to determine the demand for a certain product So like I said buying it or not doesn't help anyone.

Oh Right have you heard of discontinued products.... have you heard of reselling... for an extremely low price... all these figures that are being resold supports NO industries... China sells these products too at a low price cause because they are discontinued doesn't mean they don't still have the molding
