Lucario bootleg?

I ordered a Lucario plush the other day, and I'm pretty suspicious of it since I know the Internet can be a wonderland of bootlegs. It's the Lucario Banpresto 2010 plush, and I'm wondering if you guys could help me figure out if it's a bootleg or not, or if I'm being overly paranoid.

Here goes.

Is the fabric supposed to look like this?

The arm thing is unattached...

The spike on his chest -- is it supposed to stick out or be smushed?

The tags are inside out.

No "Shopro" sticker, either...

The feet are sown like this?

Are his flaps/dreads supposed to be stitched on to his head?

ALSO, there's no classic UFO string, stuffing is coming out, and there are loose threads here and there.

I'm pretty sure it's a bootleg, but I just want to make sure. I guess I need to be super careful when I'm shopping in Amazon, because the bootlegging is getting atrocious, even though you're really careful.

Sorry if I come off paranoid, but it's getting increasingly difficult collecting plushies online when there's rampant hordes of bootlegs D: Thanks!
