Hi guys :)

I collect Pop Vinyl figures, to be specific Pop Vinyl figures that are based on comic book or anime

characters, but I'm haveing trouble with the design of the boxes I purchase and the design of the

boxes that are on Funko's website.

Does the design of the boxes matter ?

Also, The figure that I'm worried about has the Funko's details on left foot while in the other

figures Funko's details are on the right foot.

And some of the figures I bought are figures that were not in Funko's website, but their picture

were in boxes of other figures that I bought.

Does all this matter as well ?

Because I'm afraid that if I buy a figure with a box design that is different from the one in Funko's

website then I might have bought a fake figure.

Where are you ordering from?

I have noticed as a Transformers collector, as well as anime figure collector that there has been a TON more knockoffs that look as official as can be, but are knockoffs, coming from china. Typically if you see a seller's name on ebay or amazon, etc. you can google search their name, read buyer comments, etc. and get a better idea.

I got them from Amazon.

All of the figures I got are in new condition, although the anime and the DC comics figures' heads don't move like the marvel

ones do.

These are the figures:

They seem legit to me. Perhaps packaging is a wee bit different for the UK market? Not sure. But all my searching brings back positive results, so I believe you are good to go.

I went to a couple various places to read about the seller, and read user comments and reviews.

Here is one link for example:
