    So I just found a playarts kai Lightning from XIII-2. Thing is, I'm currently in China, and I'm worried it's a bootleg. Are bootlegs of XIII-2's Lightning known to exist, and if so, how does one spot it? Also, what price are they going for on retail? Thanks

    Not that I know of but I suspect it could be a factory reject, especially if it's loose. Loose DC universe, MOTU and WWE figures are being on eBay and in my country. According to the sellers, they claim the toys are factory rejects. On the other hand, the figure you're currently looking at is the real deal??!! Rule of thumb if it's too good to be true, it's most likely is.

    Well, the figure is in package and appears to be in good condition. For reference, what is the standard price of the product at retail?

    I'm not sure dude but when I picked up Big Boss from the Metal Gear series, he coated me around USD$45 to USD$50 but I have to give a disclaimer because I got a discount from the shop owner who is on good terms with me.

    I remember seeing pics of bootleg Kai Cloud and Squall. The original box had silver foil writing, while the bootleg had blue writing.

    yeah there r so many of the bootlegs now. One of my friends just got one...
    So try to get them in your local store or from the official website, it will be much safer.
