Apparently one of the Miku shown above is a bootleg which I bought from one of the store from EOY. My fault actually to never really checked before buying. There were like 2-3 on sales at the store which I purchased from and they were all sold out on the very day itself. So other than myself, there should be others who got cheated too. The shop name is "pan-in-the-box" if I'm not wrong.
Made of glossy material, blushes on the cheek, eye staring to the front.
Others not shown in photo include loose joints and lousy paint work.
Made of non glossy material, no blushes on the cheek, eye staring to the top.
Seriously it's damn hard to differentiate between the 2 when they are in packaging. I guess the best way to be safe is to just buy from the reputated store even tho the price will be a bit higher rather taking the risk and getting a bootleg one without one knowing.
If anyone from "pan-in-the-box" is reading this, please reconsider the way you do business. If there's receipt for this bootleg I've bought, I'll make sure I report this to CASE. Too bad there isn't any. Good for you!
Thanks to Cleartranquil for pointing this out to me.
