Bootleg Warning: Nendoroid Red (Good Smile Company)

2015/12/14

There are currently bootleg versions of Good Smile Company’s Nendoroid Red 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.

– Note –
Below is one example of a bootleg figure, please note that is is only one possibility. You should always be on the look out for anything suspicious. Also note that there can be bootlegs of various figures, not just the examples shown on this website.


Packaging

The bootleg version often does not include the Good Smile Company logo.
Note that there is an Official English version of the pacakging as well. (Not pictured)
