    Hi there!

    I bought an Ultimate Madoka Figma from an eBay shop (Open box for confirmation; figure as-new) but one of the faces that came with her has what seems like a factory defect. The nose is flat, instead of pointed as it should be. It looks as if it was melted or pushed really hard against a flat surface. I sent an inquiry to GSC the other day; hoping for the best. I know the figure is old, but I thought I'd try my luck anyway.

    I've included some pictures for reference:

    Looks like a fake.
    The painting looks bad too. Was the ebay price close to the price on other sites or a crazy amount lower?

    I can see where you're coming with on this... but I'm on the fence. Can't find any current evidence of a bootleg (and nobody has reported one on MFC for the Figma). Comparing to this picture, the collar could be suspect though. There is some white paint slop visible on that pic, so the white overage may not be odd.


    However, I doubt GSC will have faceplaces available for a 6 year-old Figma, fake or real. They don't tend to keep spare parts to hand for that long (maybe 1-2 years?).
