Gotta love the knock off toys, I got a bunch of "Fighter GT" figures that look suspiciously like a certain set of well know Japanese animation toys that I found at a dollar general. I Stop at these dollar stores now and then to see what knock off toys they have this week.

I keep misreading the sign, but it's okay because "Crab Bags" would also be enticing.

The packaging for all the knockoff superheroes and Power Rangers (because they surely can't count as actual superheroes) are among the greatest things I've seen.

Hah, it's hilarious to see how my Mexican brethren is still selling tons of luchador masks, the staple of many markets. I fee however that it looks more like a halloween sale... Perhaps that's what dragged you there after all, -RoG-.

And, by the way, I am damn sure that the Beastly Fist Corops package has a mistake with the spelling of the name... I can see it says Beastly FLst Corps.

As for the InterChangeRobot Convoy, well who knows! Maybe his name is Transfo after all.

"Transfo" appears to be based on the mold of the Stunticon leader. Can't remember his name.

DarkfireTaimatsu, I thought it said "Crab Bags" too when I first saw it! It's cuz it was drawn in such light marker colors. I wish they were Crab Bags... there's no way I would've forgotten those.

Silver, hehe yeah I think it is spelled incorrectly as "FLst Corps". Even better!

HowardC, yeah I actually reviewed one of the Optimus Prime Japanese "Convoy" toys a while back... the Optimus Prime Pepsi Convoy to be exact! Check it out.

I see those super hero sets all the time here in Atlanta. If you take the hulk toy out of the package, he'll have no painted ass. Just green hulk butt for all to see.

The k.o Convoy looks like an extremely goofy Motormaster with Menasaurs head attached.

Those bootleg packages are so dumb they hurt to look at.

But when you think about it, "Transfo" is actually pretty clever. Any kid looking at it will think it's the word "Transformers" covered up by the truck, and that they should buy it because Transformers are cool. But when Hasbro sues the company for violating their copyright they can just look all innocent and say "What? This toy is clearly named 'Transfo'". And while the truck on the front may look like Optimus, it could just be a truck. No way to prove otherwise.

Now I'm not certain if these toys were produced by devious masterminds of infringement, or if they just got lucky.

I love the "Superheros" packs.

From now on, I'll consider Mr. Incredible, Raphael, Naruto, and Buzz members of the Justice League!

Actually, after "Final Crisis" (which I didn't read) they very well could be!

Also, love how "Super-Warrior: Ninja-force" featured all the "Turbo" Power Rangers (Or "Carranger", in Japan).

DarkfireTaimatsu: are you sure? a crab bag sounds like something i'd rather avoid...

Rog, that was hilarious. Yet another reason I need to win the lotto so I can take a road trip that-a-way.

I really really want that Vader T-Shirt. For some reason, to me, it's the epitomy of awesomeness and I must have it. Any chance of you grabbing one for me when you go back for the grab bags Rog? I'll email you and work out the details if you don't mind.

greenimp: Yuck...

By the way, the Spider-Man that is on the first photo depicting a bootleg toy pack seems to be so shocked about the "Catch all baddy" line that he is just staring to it in disbelief.

Oh man, Naruto, Batman, Spider-Man and Iron Man in the same toy package? And I thought the bootlegs at the nearby Chinatown mall were bad, hahahaha.....

I want one of those Luchador masks.

I simply MUST have that Vader shirt that proudly proclaims "Soy el padre, Mijo". Also one that would say "El NOOOOOOOOOO!!!"
