Fake Melissa Seraphy Nendoroid actually isn’t too bad.

I’m sure we’ve all seen the horror that is fake figures. More often than not the quality is rather terrible, almost comical. However, I recently recieved a fake Melissa Seraphy nenoroid that (in my opinion) isn’t actually all that bad looking.

I got her as a gift a while back but unfortuantly the person who bought her doesn’t know how to spot a fake. I could tell she was a fake right away, however I don’t think she looks all that bad!

I mean, it is a bit obvious that she is fake, but the quality isn’t atrocious like other fakes I’ve seen. What do you think?

Being a fake, of course the stand she came with won’t even fit her. So I have to prop her up against something in order for her to stand up. And she has the usual problem of fake figures with her arms and other bits falling off rather easy. You can’t really pose her any more than how she is right now.

Overall, I think I will keep her. Heck, I will even have her on display! (not on my main figure shelves, of course ^^)

UPDATE: On a more serious matter: My heart goes out to all of those who have been affected by the earthquake / tsunami in Japan. I hope everyone is safe and hopefully damage is minimal. I wish I could help in some way, but there isn’t much I can do all the way across the world in NY. I hope Japan has a speedy recovery! 頑張ってください!!

  1. How did you tell it’s a fake? Can’t really see from the photos. Bad eyesight, I suppose.

    I have a bootleg too, bootleg Nendoroid Miku. Smells like crud and the colours are bizarre.

    • Usually you can tell if the face seems overly shiny, if the colours are really off, some parts of the figure are off, or if parts of the figure fall off too easy. A way to tell just by looking at the box is if it has a sticker of authenticity on it (which most nendoroids have).

      Melissa has most of these signs, but the sculpt and colours are surprisingly good imo for a fake.

  2. Lol, this looks just like a real one except for the shiny face.
    Also, I would like to know what that cool pixel-ish box is containing. Tissues perhaps?

    • Yea I know I thought she looked pretty real as well. Guess the people who are making fakes are getting better at it ^^.
      And yes the pixel-ish box is a box of tissues, made by kleenex if you are interested ^^.
