|This line of bootleg toys features
figures from the Spider-Man Electro-Light toy line. Now I have usually
found many Spider-Man bootlegs to be made very poorly. But this particular
series is actually quite good. It even features a couple of characters
that I never found bootlegged before. Maybe that is why I like this Spider-Man
bootleg series. It has one of my favorite comic book characters.
The figures come on a 10" X 8" card
with artwork and logos taken directly from the original toy line. Well,
as close as can be for bootleg toys. All the figures come on a Spider-Man
Electro-Light card. Here is what one of the figures looks like in its package:
So far I have found four figures in this series of bootleg toys. They are Spider-Man, Electro and (one of my all time favorites!) Captain America. These figures stand between five and a half inches and six inches tall. They all suffer from the usual poor paint jobs. But these are really not too bad. Here is a look at them:
Old Spidey is here is missing the
shoulder pads that the real figure comes with. Now I don't have the real
toys that these figures are based on. So my comments are based on the pics
off the back of the card these figures come on. The Spider is missing some
red paint on its back. The only real problems with the paint job on this
figure are on the spider logo on the figures chest. The bootleggers couldn't
keep between the lines.
The villain in this bootleg series,
Electro's paint job is pretty good. Well, if you can overlook the fact
that every part of the figure and accessories that is supposed to be yellow
is instead a greenish/gold color.
This is my first Captain America bootleg
figure that I have ever found. Believe me, I was quite thrilled to find
Here is one more Spiderman figure
from this line of bootleg toys. This particular Spidey has the worst paint
job of all the figures in this bootleg series. All over the red portion
of Spider-Man's costume are black smudges. I mean, the smudges are ALL
OVER this poor figure. It's really quite bad. Yuck!!! See for yourself.
Here is the last figure in this bootleg
series. It is another Spider-Man figure. Like the other figures, it also
suffers from a poor paint job. Notice that the black normally found around
Spidey's eye is missing?
