SO my first ever Nendoroid arrives in the mail. After clawing through the multiple layers of packaging, I sensed something was amiss when I saw the box. I knew shit was brewing when I chanced upon this:
With fear and trepidation, I opened the box. Instead of being greeted with the nice PVC smell GSC stuff come with, a horrid odour of cheap plastic fills my nose. Fuck. It was then I saw this face, and realised that I had bought a bootleg.
Fucking China. Never gonna buy any figures from eBay again. I will get a real Nendoroid real soon, I mean it. The smell of the plastic is so fucking strong that it fills up the entire room. I don’t even want to study anymore. Not to mention the parts are loose, the paint job horrid and whatnot.
Perhaps its price should have set off a few alarm bells in my head. At about $20, it was too much of a steal – even if it were, as comments seemed to imply, a ‘clearance sale’. Perhaps I already knew it’d be a bootleg. 99.69% positive feedback? Bullshit. Fuck China. Its parts keep falling apart too. I really feel an urge to splurge tomorrow. I don’t know why.
Lesson 1: Never trust eBay.
Lesson 2 : China’s plastics all smell like crap.
Lesson 3: China’s plastics all smell like crap.
Lesson 4: Bootlegs suck.
To think China can come up with quality stuff -yet still rely on making bootlegs ._.
And damn, my friends like rubbing salt in my wounds.
Never mind, I’ll probably pick up Azunyan next week out of spite.
