What were the bootleggers
thinking? They painted Hawkeye's arms and face white. And what's
up with the orange bow, arrow and whatnot? Ah well, those are
just some of the minor details that make bootleg toys fun to
At least the bootleggers
didn't screw up Blizzard too much.
Hey all you Transformers
collectors! If ya believe the packaging, the motorcycle is some
kinda transforming toy.
I don't know who it is.
But I am sure that somebody from the Bootleg Toys Mailing List
will make sure I find out.
I know that everybody
is just dying to find out what the back of the card looks like.
So here ya go.
Basically, it's just the
play instructions for the "real" toy. Of course, there are no
copyrights or trademarks anywhere on the package.
What's the deal with these toys?
Well, Hawkeye and Blizzard are both based on molds from the 1995 Iron
Man toy line. Even though they are sitting down, they appear to be the
right height of about five inches.
The motorcycle that they are riding
on is about eight inches in length and about three and a half inches
at its highest point.
I tell ya. This is one very cool
bootleg toy. I just love the imagination that the bootleggers used to
put this together. Thanks to Dare for scoring this toy for me.
Hmmm, it seems that alot of the
Iron Man figures from this series have been bootlegged in one form or
another. I wonder if there is a bootleg Modok figure out there somewhere?
