Robotic Bebop and Rocksteady by Playmates

Robotic Bebop and Rocksteady by Playmates

I don’t want to go too much into the history of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) action figures by Playmates, but just know they were released regularly for about 10 years and with each new series, the character variations got more and more varied (and absurd). The thing is, the toys and characters […]

Happy Smurfoween!

Happy Smurfoween!

Typically when I hear the word “Smurf” as it relates to the word “Halloween,” I imagine something disturbing like this: Smurf costume photo courtesy of Unreality Magazine. But now, thanks to Schleich, I can now picture this: (Click to enlarge) Ya know, I never thought I’d see the day when I’d put Smurf PVC figures […]

Super-Spider-Man

Super-Spider-Man

Well, last time I thought I’d show you some cool “knock offs” of your favorite super heroes, but today, we’re taking it to full-on “bootleg.” So what do you get when you combine the world’s three most popular comic superheroes into one figure? You get a mess. If you can’t afford a figure of each, […]

Super Fantastics vs. Super Diabolics

Super Fantastics vs. Super Diabolics

You see these generic-looking super heroes? (The ones that look a lot like Playmobil?) They may look like true knock-offs or bootlegs of your favorite comic characters, but they are in fact a legit toyline from a legit Spanish toy company, Airgam. “What the hell is Airgam” you may be asking? well, Airgam is a […]

Alright, let’s see what we’ve got this time. Oh yes – freaky, little chubby men dressed as some of DC Comics’ most iconic superheroes. (Click to enlarge) Superman (Click to enlarge) Batman… (Click to enlarge) Robin… (Click to enlarge) … and Captain Marvel (who some folks call “Shazam”). No matter how horrible they may be, […]

Weirdo Toys at Heroes Con 2009

So for those who don’t know, the Heroes Convention is a comic con that takes place every year in Charlotte, NC. It usually happens around Father’s Day weekend. It’s actually this weekend – June 19-21. Anyway, I try to make it there every year. I shop around some for random comics, toys and stuff, but […]

La Cosa de los Cuatro Fantásticos

La Cosa de los Cuatro Fantásticos

Well, as you’ve seen here before (and I’m sure you’re bound to see again), I have some delightfully horrible Mexican bootlegs to share. (By the way, I hope that Spanish blog entry title is correct. I kind of guessed at it using Babelfish and Google. Who needs to bother learning multiple languages? ) It’s great […]

Hokuto no Ken Revolution - Exploding Member of Zeed

Hokuto no Ken Revolution – Exploding Member of Zeed

Hello again. Sorry I haven’t had a new toy up in a while. I was away on vacation, and now I’ve finally gotten around to bringing you more weirdo toy goodness. Speaking of weird, here’s a little something i recently ordered from Japan. It actually arrived a couple of weeks back, but I’m just now […]
