Kommentare Official vs Bootleg: Evangelion Q Poskets - The Girls (Bandai)

  • I love your reviews! I always find it so interesting to see the differences between bootlegs and originals. Cringe at the really bad/big defects of bootlegs and be pleasantly amazed when some of them look good. It's amazing the lengths bootleggers will come up with.

    If I may offer an alternate perspective to a lot of people below saying they can't believe there's bootlegs of such inexpensive figures. I live in a third world southeast asian country and I believe I've walked past a stall selling Qpocket bootlegs this very morning! Although Qpockets are inexpensive compared to other figures to buy one here is about the same price as feeding a family of 4 in a nice restaurant- the price difference between an original and bootleg will be quite significant. I reckon their probably targeted towards casual anime fans or families who don't know any better and probably don't care/don't know about the difference. They'll probably just go - oh a cute and cheap figure of a character I like.

    Yeah, I think that the bootleggers are going for the popularity of Evangelion with this one, rather than trying to really win on price lol.

    Nice review. Thanks. I detest the bootleg Asuka because her eyes are just so CREEPY. I agree that the bootleg Rei was produced better. Still, to save a few euros it is hard to imagine that a collector or fan would want the bootleg instead of the official.

    KemcyVor 5 Monaten#87486790Wow thanks for making this! I didn't know that Q Poskets have bootlegs. I mean, they are usually very affordable, but I guess that they would bootleg anything if it's popular enough

    The bootleggers know no bounds. For cheap figures, it's usually just the "megafranchises", but I'm sure there'll be the odd head-scratcher out there.

    speaking as someone who owns the rei qposket, it's so weird that anyone would bother making bootlegs of a line that's 1. very inexpensive and 2. already kind of odd looking even without bootleg nastiness
