Just found out that they aren't allowed to sell bootlegs at the Dealers hall, unfortunately this happened 2015 fanime.

But I bought what I thought was a S.H.Figuarts Sailor Moon. It was a fake, and I remember asking if it was legit, and the vendor said yes. It was the one vendor that always sell's all the sailor moon stuff. I still have the figurine and the box, I mean it's not like I can resell it for the price I bought it for anyways. They've been at fanime the last three years I've gone, and I was very upset to have been ripped off like that, it was the first sailor moon figurine I bought and not gonna lie, I cried when I found out it was a fake. I probably wouldn't have been so upset if they hadn't passed it off as official merchandise and asked me to pay ~45$

So I guess I'll leave this up as a warning for those who go to buy from this dealer

Out of pure curiosity, what tipped you off that it was fake?
