    They misused a picture I posted on my IG without my knowledge or consent.

    I don't support or endorse their bootleg operation. :evil:

    @Jayfunk3 I think you can report the image for being taken and posted by another profile without permission.

    For some reason Designer Toy Awards used a shitty photo of mine for a @Paulkaiju Machine Gun Ghost for "Best Production Sculpt" :lol:

    @kid_miracleman Well, shit! At least it was for a good reason and not bootlegging! Besides, @Paulkaiju is more than worth both the nomination and win!

    @kid_miracleman Ah, very true. I mean, realistically they should've asked regardless. But it would've been cool to have something more intentional displayed. Especially for this version of the sculpt.

    MVH bootlegs are stacking up. Watch out if you're buying a Death's Vault Sam, Chestburster DX, or Kaiju Tan Flying Freak. There are others but they're all obvious counterfeits or so rare you'd be stupid to buy a suspiciously cheap one from China.

    just know what you're looking at. he has tried to duplicate paint many times, always falls short and you can easily tell. That Clyde he posted one of the better tries... but still nowhere near the original he was using as his muse.

    Done. Thanks for bringing this to our collective attention, Mark. Very uncool. I know the pricing is low, but come on. Especially when the description for the item specifically states "All figures are authentic." You are making a bootleg - which is bad enough, and quite insulting to the original artist - but at least have the conviction to state this.

    It may not have any 'teeth' but the more we can at the very least report these items, the very least we can do to maybe provide that hesitation/even slight inconvenience to this happening again in the future.

    More: A friend was asking about someone that was selling a bunch of customized Marmit Desu-Gojis and wondering if they could be bootlegs. I told them I'd ask around.

    This HxS Gorilla it´s on sale announced as a one off for a very high price, but it looks very weird I think it could be a bootleg.
    What do you think?

    I believe that one is legit. There were a handful of HxS one offs sold via Mandarake a few years back. Pretty sure that this is one of them.

    Thank you for the info, I thought it could be one of those match ups parts made in China.
