Anybody remember the cartoon Gargoyles?
I sure do! Mostly cuz one of my sisters was totally into this cartoon.
Anyways, here is a series of bootleg toys based on the Gargoyles toy line.
I gotta tell ya, this is actually a pretty good looking set. If ya didn't
handle the package, I daresay it would fool just about anybody.
Above is a bootleg Battle Goliath
figure. This toy comes on a card that measures 11" X 7". The bubble that
the figure is mounted under is sturdier than what ya would find on most
bootleg toys. But the most unusual thing about this series is that each
figure has the correct insert in the bubble. Yes, the bootleggers went
the extra mile and matched the insert to each figure. Now that's something
ya don't see too often.
||This is the Goliath bootleg figure.
I have no idea how accurate any of these figures are compared to the "real"
I suppose the armor and accessories that come with the figure are the wrong shade of gold.
||Boy, it's a good thing the bootleggers
included the correct insert for each figure. I never woulda figured out
who is who. Believe it or not, but I couldn' t find any toy pics of the
Gargoyles toy line anywhere on the net.
This figure is Steel Clan Robot. The rifle that comes with this toy is the same color as Steel Clan Robot's wings.
||This guy's name is Broadway.
The wings that come with this toy are not attached to the figure. The inside
of the wings have also been painted (quite sloppy too) green.
The two accessories that come with this toy are both a dull gray color.
||This is Strike Hammer MacBeth.
If ya believe the back of the package, this would be Strike Hammes MacBeth.
Based on the pic of this figure on the card back. I would have to say that the paint job is waaaay off. I don't think this guy's shoulder pads and gloves should be painted green. At least, NOT that green. The bullets across his chest probably should be painted yellow.
All the weapons that come with this figure are black. My guess is that the weapons should be silver.
||Hudson is the last figure in
the series. His wings are painted brown like the figures upper torso.
I'd bet that the paint job on this figure has been botched big time.
Hudson comes with a gray sword.
FYI, most of these figures stand
about five and a half inches tall. The packaging for these toys really
is pretty good. If ya didn't look really close at the packages, then
there's a good chance you'd think these toys were the real deal. But
they aren't. And if ya ever see them, don't be fooled. There are bootleg
