Bootleg Alert! Hasbro Black Cat

This is Loosecollector Customs. Where we put bootleggers in tight underpants, and give them a wedgie.

We've found out about this one just a few days ago. Very useful and informative find actually.
On all the pics, left side is the original item, right side is the bootleg....

At first glance, you can immediately notice that the one on the right looks like an ugly twin sister of sorts...


Original...
- smooth paint finish
- fur cuts right where they meet the circle zipper handle, mid cleavage
- shiny pendant
- head connects well to the neck ball
Bootleg...
- rough paintjob on the face, like she had a severe skin disease.... bless her heart.
- fur is one whole piece
- dull colored pendant
- long neck that will make Chris Bosh proud


Original - neck ball is perfect sphere
Bootleg - as mentioned, neck is longer, ball is bigger and is not a perfect sphere



Original - glossy sturdy plastic, small leg pegs
Bootleg - matte rubbery plastic, bigger leg pegs. Legs have slightly different shape too.



Original's hair - light shade of blue, soft plastic
Bootleg's hair - Lady Gaga-like, heavy blue wash with noticeably stiffer plastic. Hair gel abuse probably.







Hope this helps guys. Keep loving the hobby :)!
