Misproduced figure?Misproduced figure?

nicoyaasawanicoyaasawaVor 12 TagenDiary
I bought this Yoshiko Tsushima figure at a convention two weeks ago. However when I opened it on the same day I realized something when i tried to set her up - she can’t stand on the base

The base is not even meant for her, I believe it’s the Hanamaru figure it’s meant for and the shells are also wrong.

Also I don’t think the base it the only problem, it’s the actual figure. If you look at her feet.. she can’t stand at all. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem? I went to the shop I bought it from at the convention and told them about my concern, they said it wasn’t their fault and they couldn’t do anything about it. So I didn’t even get a refund.

sailormatlac (Vor 11 Tagen) #37176526One must have deep pockets or be desperate to buy figures at cons. I've never witnessed what could be considered a deal in these peddlers rooms.Seriously. I think it only happened to me twice where I bought a figure for a few dollars under the original retail price, but it doesn’t really help since you also have to consider the con badge price.

tharglet (Vor 11 Tagen) #37156053Looking at that figure, no, she wouldn't stand without some kind of base. Or she'd be hard to balance to do so. Can't find any evidence of a bootleg, so likely a genuine packaging mistake at the factory.
If I found something like that, and had the chance to go back to the stall, I'd either be asking for a full refund & return or a half-refund for half-a-figure.
If you wanted to customise it, you might be able to make a wedge similar to the one it should have using Fimo clay and stick it to the base. Assuming the pegs are on the base, you would also need a metal rod of the right size (or your other options are to go smaller and fill and re-bore the hole, or go slightly larger and see if heat will allow the plastic to flex enough, or bore out a bit of plastic).
thanks for the tips! :D I'll try my best

AshuriiKareshi (Vor 12 Tagen) #37154922That really sucks :( the woman at the convention sounds unreasonable seen as the item you bought wasn't correct >>
The only thing I can think of is to either try and customise the base so she will fit, make a completely new base or sell the figure and base seperate (or together) to someone who likes to make custom figures and then buy a new figure.
I wish there was some for you to return it and get your money back but I'm not sure how else to go about that ;-;


Yeah lol, the lady didn't even understand what I said when I told her that I think the base is wrong, she was like "the base?" and I had to explain a lot to her, honestly don't see why people would sell a lot of stuff at a convention if they don't even know what they are selling. She was like "I'm not the boss and I didn't switch it out" like ofc I wouldn't assume that is was her fault lol

It happened for me as well. Bought ITEM #222559 from Mandarake (so legit item), but the base inside was of ITEM #222558. Really sucks, but can happen with prize figures as to my understanding.

You are probably left either with modding the base / making a custom one or reselling.

I had the same problem when ordering trading figures (also from LL! Sunshine!!), they gave another bases to these figures (only a few of them, but stil..). Its called gasha portraits or sth like that
And it was legit, I ordered it from amiami

Do you have pictures or the item link to see about which figure it goes? Indeed i have never see a mistake as this. My first thought is also bootleg. But it also can be swapped if it goes about a second handed figure or someone at the figure company having a bad day. Pictures will tell a lot in this case.

nicoyaasawa (Vor 12 Tagen) #37154791It was completely new and unopened, I dont think it's a bootleg. Only that it was misproduced. I speculated that it might have been switched out with the Hanamaru one so I talked to the lady at the shop about it and she said I couldn't look at the other one, stupid me bought the other one, the bases are completely the same and nothing was wrong with the Hanamaru figure.. it's really unfortunate haha. I sold my Hanamaru figure to my friend though.
