Potential Bootleg SH Figuarts Android 17

Hi All. I recently purchased an SH Figuarts Android 17 from a seller on Amazon known as Toy Japan USA. It was fulfilled directly by Amazon. When I received it, I noticed that the box did not have the Toei sticker on it and I know that is typically a sign of a bootleg figure. However, when I opened the box to inspect the figure, I didn't notice any of the tell-tale signs of a bootleg that I've seen on youtube comparison videos. The knees were the same color (not shiny/glossy) as the rest of the legs, the bandana was the normal shaded yellowish orange color, and the figure came the the clear slightly sticky piece of clear plastic attached to the back of the head as well as near the waist. The hair was uniform throughout as well, both the back and front part that snaps in with the face. No difference in color of glossiness present. It had the Warning Choking Hazard sticker on the front and the late BlueFin sticker on the bottom with the regular disclaimer text.
