I'm new to bootlegs so I just wanted to make sure if this is
re-painted or not. The paintjob is sloppy on the belt and theres a grey smudge on his visor. Do these
bootlegs come with shoddy paintjobs? Or did someone try to touch this up at some point?

The grey on his visor is where the gold has rubbed away with wear.he originally had a black belt buckle and visor trim but that can easily be touched up with anything from house paint to car paint to nail polish.youd need more pics of different angles to see if the shine on the black differs anywhere.

This isn't really a figure of great value, it's normal for there to be some paint imperfections and I can't see anything suspicious in this pic so my gut says that there's no repaint going on but as Daren said, different angle pics may reveal a sheen difference if there is indeed a repaint going on.
