Super Fly Hero II

August 21st, 2009 · 1 Comment · Cartoon, Movies, Superheroes, The Incredibles

This is the second figure in the Super Fly Hero series. I think it’s the last of the bunch I have.  I think there may have been four sets, but so far, it looks like I only gathered up two of them.

You can find the first set HERE.

Who have we got in this two pack? How about Mrs. Incredible and Frozone?

Not too shabby looking huh? Like the first set, the bootleg toy makers actually put the correct insert inside the bubble. Usually, inserts feature characters that don’t match the toys inside the packaging. But this go ’round, looks like the bootleg toy makers had some kind of quality control put in place at their factory.

In case you missed it the first time, here’s why this post was titled Super Fly Hero…

Heh, good stuff, huh?

Frozone comes with an LED on his chest. But like the Mr. Incredible figure I have, the LED doesn’t work. I guess the battery just couldn’t make it past a few years of non use.
Frozone comes in at about six inches tall. I’m guessing the board that’s packaged in this set is for Frozone to be mounted on.

Ain’t she sexy? This is actually a pretty good rendition of Elastigirl (although I prefer to call her Mrs. Incredible).
To be quite honest, this bootleg toy series features some really good looking figures. Yeah, they’re cheap and will probably fall apart right away. Of course, there’s always the possibility that the figures have been painted with lead based paint. But if you leave it in the package, these things are really good looking bootleg toys.
Why do the chinese bootleg toy makers save the really good looking bootleg toys for China and ship the lousy toys for us here in the states? Well, that’s a question for another day, I guess. After all, when you think about it, who’s to say there are no bootleg toy factories located somewhere in the US?
