The boxes actually look pretty similar with the most smallest of differences, The color and the image. The real one had a more brighter look than the fake. The images on the box have a different resolution, obviously the real one is much higher when it comes to image resolution. The real one will have the official Kodansha stamp.

Some easy to spot things would be that only real figmas have this label on it’s display stand. Just another small detail you would sadly know once you open it. Real figmas also come with a instruction manual in the box, But the fake comes with extra hanging cables for roof swinging. So that’s good.

Clothes feel extremely different (like) a completely different type of material. The real one’s clothes feel like rubber and you are able to bend it with ease. The fake is pure plastic and doesn’t have the flexibility the real one has. The paint job on the face is nearly similar though the real one has that little bit more detail. Pinker lips, brighter eyes and nothing added to the hair. Yeah, it is clear fake spend money to make the hair more shiny. Both come with three faces, neutral, angry, scared. A cape which uses the same material as the clothes (rubber vs plastic).

Oh this may be the biggest issue with the real vs fake are the ball point joints. The fake ones are not properly put together. Just moving the arm caused it to break (lucky it is easy to put back together, but damn). The movement of the joints a more firmer while the fake one is weaker. I tried to give the fake one a sword only to have her arm go down from the weight. The sword shouldn’t even be that heavy enough to effect it like that. Another is the discoloration on the ball joints on the fake one, making it really stand out. This fake one can’t stand on it’s own without the crappy stand. Even the stand's peg is just so weak it is hard to keep the figure upright.

Paint job is shit on the fake one. The real one has such detail with fine strokes on such a small figure. On the official page it claims “Please note that images shown may differ from the final product. Paintwork is done partially by hand and therefore final products may vary.” I can guess which were by hand. Unlike the fake, this was done with much care and time to get the small parts to the best of their abilities. The fake one doesn’t even try and there are parts of the figure where the paint blends in. Such as the pants turning brown from either the straps or skirt.

I couldn’t help myself, there was no other posture I could think of putting them in. Mikasa is about to behead (I feel like that word will get me in trouble on here)her clone.

Real Figma (AU$100) Fake Figma (AU$10.00)

(Fake Figma Scoring)

Sculpting
6/10
The mould is just a copy of the real one

Painting
4/10
Very basic, obvious overlaps and unmatched colors

Pose
3/10
Limbs are too weak at the joints to even keep a pose

Base
4/10
Hard to keep it on the pin or stand naturally

Packaging
7/10
Did have more cords than the original and unless you have the original package it is hard to tell if it is real or not

Enjoyment
4/10
Funny but this a fake

Rajke (2 месяца назад) #51668254A very nice tutorial, and you made very detailed photo's of them. The most difficult part to know by a Figma if it is real or not is to recognize it from the box. By some bootlegs the text 'MAX FACTORY X MASAKI APSY' has less space between the words and some are missing the Max Factory logo in the upper corner. It is nice to see a good example next to each other.
wow, I didn't even notice that.
[quote= I think the score you give to the bootleg is pretty high. Seeing the joints of the bootleg and the paintjob it only deserves a 0 imao.

with the paintjob it was basic. I think they stole the mould from the figma so it does look close to the real thing which was why that part was so high. the Ball joint was definitely the worst part of the model
