I decided to buy one of the pre-painted figures from e2046, meaning this figure is a bootleg. I heard good things about their Gathering product line so I decided to take the risk. When it arrived, I was actually surprised at the quality. If I had to compare it to other companies, it would be something like Alter > GSC > this figure. Unfortunately, the figure itself is very fragile and it came with a broken piece. I have mixed feelings about it since it's only a small piece and I doubt any more padding could of prevented it.
