Marvel Team Up
How about another Marvel Team
Up series of bootleg toys? This set has shown up on the east coast of the
US. I actually saw these figures here in So. Cal a couple of years ago.
Didn't buy them the first time I saw them. When I went back to buy them,
the lady who was selling the toys said she was raided and that all her
bootleg toys were confiscated. Boy, did she have a ton of bootleg toys
This Marvel Team Up set is similar
to the lone one I have in my X-Men
section of this site. John managed to pick up three different sets for
me. I know that there are at least three more different two packs out there.
Who knows? Maybe someday I'll be able to add them to my collection.
|This first team up features Spider-Man and Hydro Armor Iron Man. The Spider-Man figure in this set is the Web Shooter Spider-Man from the 1994 Spider-Man series.||
|Here is the Spider-Man Web Racer figure teamed up with a Hulk figure. FYI, the Hulk figure stands less than four inches tall.||
|The last team up I have is a
DC/Marvel crossover. This one is my favorite in the set.
Come on, ya can't beat a Superman/Spider-Man combo.
The S on Superman's chest is just a simple sticker. Also, Superman's cape isn't attached to the figure. The bootleggers just stuck it behind the figure.
One last thing. Can sombody please explain why the bootleggers used red plastic for Spidey's shorts? The darn things are supposed to be blue.
What about Superman? He should have red shorts and a yellow belt. Ah well, expectations for bootleg toys should always be kept to a minimum, right?
|This is one series that I have
been hankering to get my hands on for quite some time. I still remember
seeing a bunch of different team up sets a couple of years ago. But thanks
again to John who managed to find what has been long gone from the west
coast of the US.
