>>7452326>What are the differences?
The white on the bootleg is a warmer, almost pearly shade whereas the legit one is a very crisp white, and the paint in general is a little sloppier. There’s also the inconsistent QC inherent to bootlegs, where you may get unlucky and end up with a loose joint or a warped part or something. The biggest issue with the bootleg is that it’s very easy for her crotch to scratch up the paint on her hips, although the underlying plastic is black as well so the scratches don’t stick out too much unless you’re looking up close. Also, the plastic for the web effects is a bit bendy on the bootleg whereas the legit one’s webs are rigid - these both have their pros and cons so I won’t really label it a problem persay. >Can you tell it’s a bootleg?
When you put it next to the genuine article? Absolutely. But if she’s the only Gwen on your shelf, she looks really good by bootleg standards - you’d just think that it was a case of wonky quality control if you didn’t know it was fake. For the $16-17 shipped I paid for her, I’d definitely recommend it (especially considering the ML retailed for $20 and still manages to underwhelm compared to the knockoff Revoltech). I didn’t even set out to buy the genuine one (it was an ill-timed gift while the bootleg was in transit), and while there’s definitely a difference, the bootleg was good enough that I wouldn’t have gone out of my way to get the genuine article.
