This is Loosecollector Customs. Where we put bootleggers in tight underpants, and give them a wedgie.
We've found out that the ENTIRE "Spiderman Infinite" line has been bootlegged and sold as a lot in the grey market. You will see the figs... Superior Spidey, Black Cat, Movie Spidey, Movie Electro, Beetle, Carange and BAF Goblin all jammed together inside a cheap plastic bag.
NOTE: These fake items are for review purposes only and will NOT be used on any of our custom figures.
We would like to thank Jimmy Tan of Divisoria Mall, for donating the bootlegs and MarvelLegends.Net
for the pics of the original ones. Thank you guys!
Today we'll show you Spidey and Carnage. Sorry, no side by side comparison for now :(.
I had the legit figures before, but used them already as custom fodder.
On all the pics, left side is the bootleg, right side is the original item. At first glance, the most obvious differences are...
FAKE - sloppy paintjob and the colors do not align with the sculpt (see Carnage's eyes and teeth), dull coloring
ORIGINAL - sharp painted lines, vibrant plastic colors
But, if you are shopping for one of these guys and you don't have an original one in hand, the best way to find out is with the eyes.
The fake ones have SILVER eyes while the original ones have distinctively WHITE ones.
Hope this helps guys. Keep loving the hobby :)!
