  • GSC Warns Fans About Bootleg Orange Rouge Products

    Good Smile Company has issued an official bootleg warning for fans of their Orange Range Touken Ranbu line. This comes after the company has discovered counterfeit versions of their Nendoroid Mikazuki Munechika, Kogitsunemaru, and Kashuu Kiyomitsu being offered for sale online and at overseas shops.

    The company has released a guide to help identify counterfeit products and protect customers from unwittingly purchasing these illegal copies. However this guide is not 100% foolproof, as some bootlegged toys are of better quality than others, and cannot be distinguished from genuine articles except by expert opinion.

    The company also warns customers that they are not liable for claims and cannot offer customer support for bootlegged versions of their toys. Please see below for the complete guide. Constant Vigilance!
