SHFiguarts bootleg review

This is just a short review of the bootleg raph I just got in the mail. The box had already been opened and was creased. The figure itself isn't that bad considering it was only fifteen +shipping. Here is a side by side shot of my legit leo next to the bootleg.





It still has the die cast shins and feet and actually has a little more weight then the legit version. There's a noticeable metal bur sticking out from the toe joint. Other than that all the joints move nicely.



The bandanna, buckle, and pads are made from a cheaper plastic. All the alternate pieces fit perfectly except for the belt in the back which has a gap. The belt in front is also made of a slightly harder plastic. The pads, bandanna, and belt are molded in their respective colors and aren't painted.





Overall I would recommend it either for a custom or as a place holder til you can afford the original.

Plus if the seller listed it as genuine, report to eBay and get a refund.

It's easy to spot the difference so good luck to anyone who tries this.

Can you post pics of the weapons/accessories? Curious how close they are. Thanks for sharing. Will be useful spotting fakes in the wild.

Already done it, if they list as genuine then it clearly isn't (like this one) you can report as fake and show the reasons why.

Awesome. Thanks. Those look like a pretty close match to the real deal.

Yeah. It looked like mine were too, but I think the light was just hitting them funny. I had them out again last night and they are clearly inset.
