No way this is a legit PAK Boba Fett, not for that price. I'm not opposed to bootlegs on principle. If folks want to spend less for a (likely) inferior version of a product, that's their choice. It does bother me though when bootlegs like these flood the market with no discernible way to tell it apart from the real thing.

About the best advice I can give someone who wants to make sure they're getting the real Play Arts Kai figure is to avoid Hong Kong/Chinese outlets at all costs. As this figure has been long out of stock from Japanese retailers, Mandarake and Yahoo Auctions Japan are likely to be your best bets.

Yeah it's definitely a knockoff. GearBest is a Chinese company, and they have tons of knockoff stuff there. Honestly though, the quality of this guy matches a real PAK.

I bought a batgirl a while back and it had one of the wrist joints installed backwards, with the smaller hand side being inserted into the arm and the larger arm side sticking out. Had to blow dry and wiggle it out, but now it's kind of deformed on one arm.

Also got a big boss armored version. His face paint was really off-base and looked like it was melting downwards. His eye area also had an absurd amount of gloss making him look like he was crying.
