This was one of the many abominations I mentioned a while ago.
I took loads more pictures of the atrocities, but the phone I took them on is a jerk and I can’t send the rest until it gets repaired. This was the one I managed to email.
In this picture you can see a mutilated deerling and some sort of horrific patrat that I got a much better photo of. I’ll send them ASAP once that phone gets repaired. I promise. I found a goldmine. For now, though, here is a glimpse into the array of horrors I uncovered. Thank heaven they were all in little baggies. I would’ve probably died the second I touched the paint on those things.

I bought this on Amazon, expecting a regular Banpresto Good Wishes Reshiram plush, and ended up getting.. Whatever THIS thing is. Not truly a bootleg from what I can tell, just a horribly defective official Reshiram plush, and oh man, did it give me and my friends a laugh.

If you wanna know for sure if it’s bootleg, a lot of times the tag gives it away (bootleg plushes tend to have random stock art for the anime).

I think a lot of the plushes on Amazon and ebay are like…defective extras and rejects from the official batches though

Which ever this is it’s a beauty.


There's a fairly neat store nearby me called Zen Garden that sells Japanese and/or online products in-store. Most of it is licensed anime and fandom stuff, but I found some hilariously bad bootleg pokemon figs. (Ones that, when I pointed them out to my father, seemingly made the shop owner quite dismayed.) I'll take pictures next time I go. Are you interested in them if I do? They were (thankfully) in little bags so I didn't die from paint toxins.

Haha go for it.  If they even had the shop owner upset I can only imagine the level of “quality”


Have you ever noticed how nice the sculpts are on some bootleg figures but then the paint job wrecks it?

A lot of times the sculpt is made by making a mold of the official figure, so even if they use cheap molding methods they get the same basic shape as the official.  The paint ends up disastrous a lot because it’s done unevenly and usually rushed, plus a lot of hilarious instances where they don’t even check to make sure they’re using the right color.  Or maybe they just run out of the right color and improvise.  Either way it ends up interesting.



My Nan bought me these probably over seven years ago now, maybe eight. They came in a massive set but these are some, er, particularly unique ones. I should mention these are how they came, I didn’t draw on them or anything as a child… 

Raquaza looks so offended like it looked in a mirror and thought “WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO ME”

Okay we now have page buttons again, they’re at the bottom of the page after you scroll through the posts


Your blog theme has no next page button and it makes me sad. :<

Dammit!  I’ll add the code for that ASAP!  Thanks for pointing it out I totally overlooked it when I changed themes (links broke on the old one for some unknown reason)
