    Saw that, was wondering when someone would bring it up. Probably one of the people initially responsible for the price hike

    I'm just surprised anyone would go from collecting something as offbeat and tight-knit as monster dolls to the utterly pedestrian world of big-name watches. Hirota may be eliciting all the usual complaints lately, but yeesh. I'm sure Rolex gives a much bigger shit about you personally :roll:

    Out of curiosity...can anyone confirm the quality. There is a lot of hate and rightfully so..but I'm curious. I remember when Kaws bootlegs showed up on ebay and they were inches shorter and extremely poor quality.

    Could be these start bad; a good few of the sculpts look rougher than the originals. But I remember that the continuing profitability of kaws bootlegs has allowed them to reach the point where some are indistinguishable from the real thing. Hell, with the state of Medicom's QC I'd call the top kaws boots better overall :lol:

    I really don't want sofubi to go there. I'd probably tap out the day I have to regularly ask for legit-checks.

    Anyone know what's up with the "Longneck blanks" popping up on instagram? No headers, and the seller is pretty transparent that they are making the toys themselves. What's really surprising to me is that they have said the boots will ship from the Middle East, and judging by the seller's account they seem to be based in Dubai.

    Yes, unfortunately another bootleg operation exploiting this hobby. Mr. Yoda posted a message five days ago to his fan base, warning folks to beware and be careful.......

    【ご注意ください】

    Longneckソフビの偽物を本物と偽って販売している者がいます。
    DMで案内が来るようです。300USDで販売しているようです。
    未塗装品が多いようです。
    皆様、注意してください。 ※ 画像は私が描いたラクガキです。

    Weird that it's coming out of Dubai because that Zheng guy also posted a lineup of GID Majins recently

    Well hopefully Mr. Yoda and MEDICOM are able to offer legitimate, larger open runs once more and the bootlegs fail to be successful. That seems to be the only avenue to take, to beat them at their own game. Win for the artist, win for the fans

    You think this is what will make them finally respond?
