The toys in this post are rehashed from a series I posted in the original section of this site many many many years ago. The packaging has changed, but not the figures. The thing is, the figures I posted many many years ago are on a page that I didn’t back up when I let the site lapse. So those toys aren’t on the site anymore. But fear not dear visitor for I have a digital camera with which I can partially correct this problem.

Here you go…..

    Omg! You didn’t abandon this site???? I swore you did when I happened to discover it a month ago.

    I like your reviews and picture of bootleg toys. I love bootleg stuff in general, it’s usually laughably bad.

    Keep up the good work!!!

    I found out about your site this weekend after I found it on Cracked.Com and I Love It!!

    BTW:Even a mixed up Tarzan found it’s way into the literary world sorta!!
    On an episode of”My Name is Earl”,Earl was reading”Trazan of the Apes”to a group of kids!!
    Seems the Camden Library couldn’t afford the real titles and had knockoffs instead!!!

    Keep up the good work!!

    What I love about these are the oddball accessories – the top one (bootleg of Transmetal Terrorsaur) comes with what I think is a Mini-Con from an entirely different series.

    And the second one, a bootleg of another Beast Wars figure, Optimal Optimus, comes with the cannons that are a non-removable part of the original toy because they have the robot head built into them. Seriously, you can see it sticking out of the top there.
