Fake Miku vs Real Miku

mikumiku-fake-spotting

How to spot a MikuMiku fake: on the left we see Comrade Miku, and on the right we have Good Smile Miku; you will likely recognise the figure in question as being the now iconic and extremely popular Nendoroid Hatsune Miku (try Kagamiku if you want something in stock)…

The manufacture on the fake Nendoroid seems quite convincing, certainly enough to fool an unwary or desperate buyer. Clearly, without legal curbs such “pirate” versions represent an increasingly sophisticated problem for figure manufacturers.

The unique Chinese approach to respecting intellectual property rights has meant more and more curious products in recent years, and figures are not immune to this, although not all domestic Chinese buyers go along with this culture…
