Spider-Man Movie Figure
Okay, here we are just
two weeks after the Spider-Man movie has opened. Already the bootleg
toys have hit the market. I know that's probably not a record. But I
was actually pretty surprised to see such a wide variety of Spider-Man
movie bootleg toys pop outta the woods.
So like, for some reason,
I'm a total sucker for bootleg toys that come boxed. Probably cuz I
don't see them too often. But lately there has been a whole bunch of
boxed bootleg toys showing up. Superman, Batman, Spider-Man...
Well, here's a Spider-Man
movie bootleg toy. The first of a few that you'll eventually find on
Here ya go!
What we have here is an eight inch tall Spider-Man figure. The guy has
only nine points of articulation. It's hard to tell here, but Spidey's
eyes and the web outline on his costume are both painted silver. Sorry.
But in my haste to get an update to the site, I forgot to take a close
up pic of the figure.
That thing that looks like
a round shield isn't one. I think it is actually a stand for the five
inch figures. The weapons look awful familiar. As a matter of fact,
I almost almost positive that they are the sames ones that came with
the 10 inch boxed Superman figure known as Superhero. Granted, the bootleggers
did give one of the accessories a "spidey" twist.
The box this bad boy comes
in is pretty sturdy for a bootleg toy box. Usually, the boxed figures
come in boxes that are already halfway smashed to hell. But this one
is a couple of notches above the norm. The box measures roughly 13"
X 10" X 2". The back of the box features pics of figures from the Spider-Man
movie toy line. While the bootleggers were nice enough to include a
barcode, this box features the normal lack of copyright or trademark
logos seen on "real" toy packaging. All in all, this is one sweet bootleg
