Preordered the original. Pricey as hell, but damn. The one full size figure I will not regret getting.

(A la The Nostalgia Critic) A MADOKA CREDIT CARD!?! Does't not compute! Does't not compute!

Sorry, couldn't resist doing that.

That is almost like the GSC figure, but some of the details are different. Who made it?

@Jimmy C.

She comes in a GSC box. This is the first time I bought a figurine that is not ordered from the internet. I have a suspicion that the one I got is an imitation, since it's a little cheaper than the one sold in the net. Also asked the dealer how he pays customs taxes, all he said is that his "suppliers" have a way of getting around customs.

Well, even as an imitation. Madoka-san is cute enough, so I bought the figurine.

Yeah, it looks bootleg to me, but hey.. It looks pretty good to me anyway.

GSC has articles on their website about fakes that even come in very similar boxes. How much was yours, anyway?

Approximately 31 USD. I converted the peso.

It's a bootleg, I'm sorry to tell you. The real deal costs about 2.5 times that. I saw that in a local store myself. I already had the genuine article by then, so I could tell something was wrong with that one.
You can compare yours to mine in post #781 here. Other than the differing details, look at the base. On the genuine base, the color becomes clear towards the center of the base. This is more visible on the Homura and Mami bases than the others in those photos. The bootlegs I've seen, and yours, have an even color on the base. Heck, I saw 2 bootleg Madokas in that store and their bases were of a different color from each other!
There's also a property copyright line printed on the underside of the base. "Magica Quartet / Madoka Partners - Aniplex - MBS"

But you got cheated. Go to someone else next time. If you want cheap figures, at least go for those that aren't pretending to be their betters.

Another good resource is myfigurecollection.net which has a extensive library of pictures of all the figures that are available along with other data, including pictures of the fakes.

As Jimmy C has said, that figure should have been over two times more then what they were charging for it and if you have a good source for getting the actual price (that I've already mentioned) then you can tell the fakes from the genuine figures (but it won't help that much for the cheaper figures as I found out a few months ago).

Already had the suspicion that it's a bootleg just by the cheap price. But still bought it because the quality was good enough for me.
I only have 2 bootleg figures - a Shana nendo which I was tricked by a local store, and this Madoka figurine which I willingly bought. The rest of my collection are procured from either CDJapan or HLJ, so I'm sure they're the real deal.

Gift's, not GSC's. Read the blog you linked to properly.
Nice as the rest of her looks, the face just doesn't look right to me.
And I've commited to one set, I can't afford another.
