    You'd think the Skullbrain of 2021 would have some AI that auto-detects sarcasm and makes our text purple automatically, but perhaps I expect too much.

    Given the price tags, crap that's being produced and actually being sold, and ghe general state of the 'scene' I have no idea what's fact and what's fiction . . . anything seems plausible these days! :lol:

    Sofubi is swamped with mashup fever, probably a holdoff from the designer toy scene and here to stay. So these bootlegs or whatever are fulfilling the gap of those new (and old) collectors that want the same three licenses and characters in their toys ad nauseam.

    I got yelled at on IG for calling someone's MF Doom sculpt tacky, dunno if it was set for resin or rotocast but a shit bootleg all the same. it made sense that the pitchforks came out from the crowd, what didnt make sense was their defense of such poor practices.
    The derivativeness of the work here is astounding. If you add that to that the many int'l makers that have joined the ranks, you find yourself with a lot of new good blood and plenty of the same crap we've been forced to see destroy blanks for decades.

    I think I saw another Mickey mouse sofubi last week with, again, more pus and swastikas' and a gas mask, and many collectors were praising the damn thing. Its like KAWS managed to imprint it his shitty aesthetic on all of us as it went from low brow to high brow without passing 'GO' and not collecting $200.

    What a time to be alive. Desu cookie or not, I will only abide when they get to King Ghidora/big bird and all the other mashups to be made from these trite mixers.

    oh, man! as i am named like the famous grouch and gold statue, I was a sucker for the use of the name on toys, etc... up until my 14th bday. That said, men-children should really grow up out of just these bootlegs and into more diverse references.

    The never-ending cycle of boots as Ive seen it in my 30odd yrs on this earth; cartoons>animals>foods>monsters>Starwars>repeat. just add games and comics/hip-hop at leisure to that winner list of bootlegable things

    VVC spot the bootleg challenge. Boot or not boot? The stamps on the feet look a bit weak to me, but i'm no expert (i'm pretty sure the stamps on my DX are clear and fairly deep, but i suppose this would differ between runs?).

    Pretty sure it’s real. They have been selling legit stuff for a bit now.

    Indeed, this is just the first unpainted one I've seen them list for a while.

    Nice price, eh?

    They sell some old ones that make me even question it I sold them blank. So I do question it. I just know many gifts I’ve given to people are usually sold in the end. So most likely this was a gift that someone sold to someone in Asia, which they are selling on here.

    Must be impossible to keep tally of everything ...

    I did think the vinyl looked glossier than some of those boots I've seen online. Then i thought, could someone spray a clear coat on inferior vinyl to make it look more legit?

    And prices, they go
    I’ve had two bootlegs now. Both are super weird and brittle.

    above 6 eyes is real. foot stamps are on point, both attempts from the bootlegger on the stamps is a easy sign to tell real from fake.

    my guess is this was a gift, or it was constructed by the mixed parts. I have a pink ghoul head from my mixed part pull.
