|The X Men. My
favorite comic book when I was growing up. Okay, actually during my late
teens. Next to Batman, these characters are my favorite to find bootleg
toys of. Fortunately, I was able to score these for my collection (Thanks
This series of bootleg toys is from the X Men toy line called Monster Armor. Now, I gotta admit that I don't have the "real" toys myself. So I cannot tell you exactly what the differences are between the "real" toys and these bootleg toys. But I can tell you this: These are neat!!!!
Here we go...........!!!
This is the
card that the figures come on. The card measures 12" X 7.5'.The bubble
these figures are mounted on is very fragile. There is a cheesy drawing
of Wolverine featured on the card art.
Here are close
up pics of the three figures from this series of bootlegs that I have.
The figures I have are Cyclops, Mr. Sinister and Mystique. This series
of bootleg toys features my first bootlegs of Mr. Sinister and Mystique.
It's hard to
tell in the picture, but Cyclops visor is painted green. His upper torso
and arms are a darker shade of blue than the blue his legs are colored.
Cyclop's accessories are painted brown. The fingers and toes of his
armor are painted the same green as Cyclops visor.
Her armor looks like it might come close to the right colors. But like Cyclop's armor, any part of the armor that isn't blue is painted green. I think the "real" figure is painted blue and yellow.
Here is Mr.
Sinister. He is one of the original X Men villians. In the X Men stories,
he is one of my least favorite villians.Everything about this figure
looks pretty accurate. But I am pretty sure that his armor is supposed
to be a nice silver color. This bootleg figure comes with armor that
is colored grey.
