hey thanks. i emailed the dude. um hopefully its not fake T_T

the seller has 97% user rating or w/e.....but reading the feedbakcs, there were one or two of the bad ratings that said they got counterfeit. this guy sold over 7000 items, hopefully im not the one of the few to get the fake figures T_T

is it me or is the figure is leaning towards the right?

here is something I have came across before with a friend who buys a figure where its value is lower than the original value. He did not buy it online of course but he bought it off an anime convention. The figure was a limited edition product. When he bought it and open it at home and put it on the table, he found out that its...Tilted, meaning the figure doesn't stand properly.

This is something I advise, only buy something from someone who you believe is trust worthy, I'm not saying that don't buy from that person on ebay but keep this in mind that you might have a risk when buying it online. However, if you order/ buy it from an anime shop aka. Retail Stores than I believe it should be fine.

I have Clare, and the one in your eBay link is most likely a fake, going by the pictures up on the auction. The real Clare has black painted "panel lines" on the metal clasp on her chest, a dark line is also painted between her closed lips and both her feet point forward of her body.

The eBay auction one has a more yellow looking hair color and red colored "Claymore" lettering, which the real one does not have. It also lacks the light pink lipstick and the line between the lips of the legit figure. eBay has one foot pointed in another direction, and in that boxed pic do I see detached legs? I'm pretty sure all the legit ones come fully assembled, hehe.

It's probably a fake, as is 99% of the low priced pvc figures from HK sellers on eBay. The Cammy I have in the pic on the previous page was a bootleg, but I only realized it after wondering why it was so cheap and then Googling more about bootlegs.

Hon Kong has a lot fake figures. Read the item description carefully, does it say it's from megahouse? does it say 100% original??

I got mine from local retailer, and I paid 80 CND.

As I see from the picture, the color is off than mine, and the writings on the base isnt colored on mine neither. If u read more carefully, it's assembled and painted, so it's probably a garage kit or something...


this is a picture of mine

hope this helps.

and since this is the first Claymore PVC I think your chance to find one is pretty low. I didn't get my pre-order until January because apparently they didnt make enough in Japan, the source had to wait for the factory to produce more

Got a notice a couple weeks ago from the place I preordered from that they got shorted by 50% of what they ordered, so they had to cancel mine. Ended up poking around ebay for a while, finally ordered one today. Of course the ebay sellers have plenty available, running about twice the retail cost :/

Of note, I've seen a lot of listings lately that are half the cost of the 'original' series of listings (first run of listings were about $120, second tier are at about $70) that are shown with a black box with no manufacturer given, rather than the yellow box noted as being by Megahouse. I suspect the black box version is bootleg, though it might also be a lower-quality second-run printing. And then of course there are the ~$20 listings. Saw one sell for $2. Shipping/handling was $40 (compared to $20 for most other sales). Doesn't take much to guess the legitimacy of that one.

On the figure linked to above, the colored base is probably going to be the easiest to spot tipoff, but the painting as a whole (and especially the head/face) is really jarring to look at. It just screams "amateur" compared to the polished, professional look we've seen in the promo materials.

There's no way to be sure that what shows up on your doorstep is going to exactly match what you hope you bought, but I'd look first at all the highest-priced versions to be the guideline of what the original version should cost, and check out those ebay sellers' auctions first (eg: several seem to have a few Buy It Now listings, and then a few regular auction listings if you're willing to go through the bidding process) before trying to find the cheapest available.

Good to hear!

As a note to the original one you posted, it just doesn't look "right".
Something about the face/hair and detailing.
Not about to pull mine down to compare :/

The base can be overlooked as the seller may have touched up that area with paint to make it stand out. In any other case this wouldn't indicate that it was a fake.

BINGO!

Here's hoping they make more characters. Miria anyone? Though I don't know which outfit I'd want her in. Probably her new one since I like her hair more after the skip and the new outfits are nice.

I was thinking of the major characters, ones before the arc where they have the new outfits.

Such as: Theresa, Priscilla in Yoma transformation.

Theresa would be immensly popular if it were to be released. I couldn't imagine MegaHouse not considering her as the next character (if more were to be made).

Oh, that one is no Clare!
Yes, the old one is better looking + Clare never poses like that!

But one thing I like about it is the face-distorted Clare who's releasing yoki. That's some nice details.

Hmm, I don't particularly like the default face and really don't like that costume at all. The extra face is a nice touch but she looks a bit too happy instead of angry/fierce.
