Bootleg Warning: Nendoroid Touken Ranbu Series (Good Smile Company)

2017/04/17

There are currently bootleg versions of Good Smile Company’s Nendoroid Touken Ranbu series are being sold on online auction and marketplace websites.

These bootleg figures are made illegally based off the original versions without permission from Good Smile Company, and hence we unfortunately cannot offer any support for these bootleg figures. There are also many cases where these bootleg figures still feature the official logos of Good Smile Company or the companies we distribute for, however these logos are also not used with any permission. Always take care when buying goods online.
