These are... interesting to say the least. It's neat to see the Flash head on the Amazo body-type sculpt. Also looks like Wonder Woman is using Vixen's left arm. Anybody else seen these? I was wondering who else might be available.

I was just thinking it would be funny if these bootlegs were actually easier to get to stand up than the originals. :lol:

Notice above the bar code on the back they wrote Non-Radioactive, Non-Toxic. That is after they discovered that some Chinese companies had recycled plastic that was used to store radioactive toxic waste.

The paint apps may be better than the mattel originals! :lol:

I remember seeing more of these before this. I never saw the Eclipso.

There is more of these. Definitely Batman & Hawkgirl.

Someone mentioned Volcana & some other tougher to find figures.

Where does one find such little gems? eBay only?

Usually Ebay or flea markets I would say. Or a visit to Canal Street in NYC...or for the jet set crowd, Mexico, China or Argentina.

Pair some of these search terms on Ebay along with the character's name: "Bootleg", "China", "Chinese", "Mexico", "Mexican", and "Argentina". You'll see some gems.

Um...what? Like, our JLU collections have radioactive toxic waste in them??? For reals?

Weren't these toys being sold in department stores to KIDS?


I don't know if this it the right word, but these bootlegs look janky. I'll laugh if they do release a Volcana...

Your JLU collection should be fine.
The article that I saw cautioned people about products made in China. Apparently the bootleggers felt a need to label their products that way.

A Volcana bootleg would sell like mad on ebay. I wish that there were an easy way to contact the people that do this. It wouldn't hurt Mattel at this point either. I know that years ago they were getting upset about ebay and bootleg figures, but now that the line is dead, who cares?

I thought someone on another forum said they saw Volcana & maybe The Key?

Those are bonkers! Nice to see that JLU lives on... after a fashion. Just imagine if the bootleggers kit-bashed a new character!
