Here are some more Spice Girls
bootleg toys. I thought this line of toys was called Spicy. But it
is actually called Spicy Girls.
Check out the bottom left corner
of the card front. That little scribble is actually supposed to spell out
"girls". I thought it was one of the Spice Girls autographs. This
was pointed out to me by a member of the Bootleg Toys Mailing List that
it really spells out girls. Thanks Charles!
Here is the front and back of
the card. Looks pretty good if ya ask me. If ya overlook the fragile bubble
and the misspelling of Hottest on the card back, you just might think these
were the real deal.
||Here's Baby Spice. Baby Spice
comes with two microphones and what appears to be a backpack.
|Ginger Spice. I gotta tell ya,
if she was a real person dressed like this, she would be hot! There's just
something about a redhead in a short skirt, y'know? Heh. There's something
about any woman in a short skirt.
Anyways, this Ginger's hair is
more of a burnt orange than red. Like Baby Spice, Ginger comes with two
mikes. She also comes with a video camera.
|This Spice Girl is Sporty Spice.
Ya can't see it in the pic, but she is wearing white and black tennis shoes.
Waddaya know? Sporty's accessories are two mikes and a teddy bear.
Chris Doyle (Island
Of Bootleg Toys fame) tells me that the teddy bear really should be
matched with Baby Spice. So it looks like the bootleggers just mixed and
matched the accessories with the figures.
Based on the pics that are on
the card back, I bet that all five of the Spice Girls are in this series.
Unfortunately, I only found these three. Who knows? Maybe the other two
will turn up someday.
What's the specs of these figures?
Well, the card measures 10.5" X 6.5". The figures themselves stand five
and a half inches tall. The only articulation on these figures is in the
arms. Lastly, each figure comes with a clear plastic stand for ya to place
All in all, these are a neat
little series of toys. Hopefully, someday I'll stumble on the remaining
figures in this series.
