Best action-figure websites
Bootleg action figures are poorly made knock-offs of licensed and popular toy lines or characters. The bootlegs are considerably cheaper than the real thing due to the quality of the figure itself, and it not baring the name of a well-known toy corporation. These misfit toys do not interest the majority of collectors, but they are Joseph Medrano's cup of the tea. H's the operator of Bootlegactionfigures.com.
Even though this site may not be one of the best action figure websites, it is the best bootleg action figure website, and is worth a look for humor, and amazement at how large this guy's collection is. There are hundreds upon hundreds of bootleg toys arranged by what, or whom they are ripping off. There are well over thirty categories to choose from, including batman, Spiderman, star wars, and even the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, everyone's favorite heroes in a half shell.
Most bootleg toys are made without safety standards; they are not even safe for children to play with . These toys are a waste of plastic that the world could survive without. Medrano states on the site that he does not condone the production or distribution of these toys, and suggests that no one buys them. In addition, that some of the toys are nothing but a piece of garbage made to endanger small children, but at the same time has a vast collection of them.
There are links to people's websites who have just as much free time on their hands as Medrano does. The best link is to page where someone displays his custom made cards (backing) for nonexistent figures, which just shows that he cannot make the figures.
Your favorite action figure is bound to have at the least one bootleg toy on this website so take a look. You'll be surprised how easy it is for a knock-off toy company to destroy a beloved character and figure.
