Good Smile Company have recently noticed that there are cases of a Pirated Version of the Snow Miku Nendroid and have issued an advisory via it’s Japanese website.

Pirate on the left; Original on the right

The pirated version was caught laughing instead of smiling and have quite a few noticeable flaws and/or defects, maybe due to it’s bluer nature…

These are pointed out clearly on a few comparison pictures provided by Good Smile Company. It’s also a list to help determine the authenticity of your Snow Miku.

Left is fake; Right is original

The fakes used cheap printing on the box for the snow flakes, while the Original used embossing printing with reflective material, giving it the glittering look. This should be a dead giveaway for the Fakes, provided you didn’t notice the laughing at you…

Left is fake; Right is original

Obvious. Very. The fake do not have the promotional CR code printed on the sleeves of the box. It’s also shorter in this case… duh… But chances of you noticing it, is not high, after all it’s covered…

Left is fake; Right is original

The base of the Snow Miku can also be used to differential the two products. The original will have been printed with a copyright from “Cryton Future Media, Inc.”  followed by the blah blah, made in China… while the fake just, you know says “Made in China”.

You can use this method(looking at the base), most likely only after you have bought it so too bad…

And sorry, no one is going to be compensating you for buying the fake Miku. Hence, please support the artist, BUY ORIGINAL!
