More pictures of the loyal subjects bootlegs. They are around 3 inches, but I don't have an authentic one to verify if the scale is the same as in the originals.

Honestly, they might not even be bootlegs. They look really, really nice. It's possible that some Chinese factory workers are selling duplicates or something. Pretty cool!
It's nice that you were able to get an affordable alternative.

On another note, here's an interesting find- a Bay films inspired bootleg.

Well, this beautiful thing has been making its rounds on tumblr and instagram


If I could just get a clear image of Bootleg Krang without the plastic in front of it, I would make it my avatar, because Krang as a pimp is probably one of the greatest obscurities that a TMNT bootleg can bring. And considering its history with bootlegs, that's saying something. I hope Phelous covers this.

China knockoff Arcade figure.

I have nothing to compare to, but the piece looks and feels very solid.
No problems with paint and joints feel very tight.
Came with weapon and extra set of hands.
Recommend these just as much as the the other Neca bootlegs.

Oh man -- I wonder if the Shredder from this run has turned up or will turn up as a bootleg? I'm not expecting the original Mirage version to ever be officially released, so... that's a nice dream.

$20 with free shipping.

I'd share the seller, but the account and purchase was deleted like so many do. I wasn't even sure I'd get it, but it came yesterday.

Damn, that's a nice price. Lucky you! If I can snag those with similar means/price, I may very well do so...

I've been thinking about getting the NECA Mirage Turtles to display on my shelf, and unfortunately, bootlegs are the way to go. I would much rather prefer black and white ones, but I couldn't find any. I found colored ones for a supposedly good deal on eBay, but I am a bit wary. What should I should keep in mind if I decide to buy them?

Nothin' to keep in mind, really. They're good bootlegs across the board. Plain & simple.

I have the official black and white set, and always wanted the colour ones aswell. Been thinking the same thing about getting bootleg ones. So far have not been able to commit to them.

I saw this in a Phelous video so you best watch out for this. When you open them they apparently smell horrible so if you were to get them, you might want to air them out a bit.

That was just some runs from that particular time. I've heard that's no longer a real issue.

This, I've had mine for a couple of years already and they never smelled, also have a legit B&W set and other then their plastrons being harder they are virtually the same.

Quick question. I have a set of the red bandana bootlegs on the way and i remember seeing way back that the legit figure's weapons come apart for making it easier to put in their hands (I believe Leo's sword hilts and Don's bo in the middle). Do the bootlegs do that as well? I'd prefer to know ahead of time as opposed to accidentally breaking them later.

Awesome thank you. Figured I'd be better off asking then accidentally breaking something.

So I decided to look up the Run the Jewels Krang knock off.

And it



got



better


This company seems to specialize in gangsta bootlegs. There's one for He-Man, Spiderman, and Robocop as well.

But this one is the best. Hands down.
