Iron Man/ Space Star
Below are two different Iron Man
bootleg series that are mysteriously similar. There are obviously differences
in the packaging. But other than that, I get a feeling that the same bootleggers
made these sets.
Okay, I admit it, I don't know
which Iron Man figure is featured above. My best guess though is that it
is War Machine. Next to him is Iron Man's enemy, Mandarin. While the armor
is included with War Machine, his weapon accessories are noticably missing.
The Space Star bootlegs
are packaged very similar to the Iron Man bootleg toys pictured above.
However, pictured behind the figures on the backer board are six figures
that quite possible are included in this bootleg toy line. Below are
Backlash and Iron Man Hydro Armor ( folks, that's just a guess).
Say, get a load
at the Mandarin's card that was included with the figure. There's a
typo that gives away the fact that this is a bootleg.
The figures on this
page are based on the 1994 Iron Man toy series. So while I just recently
picked these up (it's Nov of 2001), I have a feeling that these bootleg
toys were produced several years ago. Now while I'd like to take credit
for finding these figures, I can't. These were found up in Canada by
my friend Kevin Moore. Now between you and me, Kevin is up there along
with several others as one of the nicest people I've met on the internet.
The guy goes out of his way to help not just me, but dozens of others
find stuff that we are interested in. So how about a big shout out to
