I know there was a Casey Jones from the same set, & I THINK they're of Argentinian origin. Beyond that, no idea.

Good god, I'm not sure what's worse: the bootlegs or the narration.

Anyone have any info on this guy? I found one at a little antique/collector shop for $5. The one I bought has an orange bandana. I tried doing some quick searching on google but only found this picture. He's about 6 or 7 inches tall, made of ceramic and has a hole in the bottom like a bank but no coin slot.

I know it's a little late on the ceramic turtles with the hole in the bottom; it's to aid in the baking process for the ceramic, to let out the hot air so it won't get trapped inside and subsequently make the clay explode/break.

I purchased a set of the knockoff arcade turtles and I absolutely love the ones I received. The joints are tight, the paint detail is nice and they truly look and feel like the real deal. A coworker has the real set and I honestly cannot tell much of a difference. This is just for the turtles though, as I never bought the Foot set, but I did buy Shredder...which is decent quality as well.

You seriously cannot beat the price either. My knockoff set cost under $30 for all four turtles.

Thanks for the info! I do have a Ko arcade shredder and itís joint and paint apps are great, I was hoping the turtles would be the same.
Mind if I ask where you got yours? I just purchased a set on eBay, but it was nowhere near as good of a deal as the price you paid.

I purchased my set off eBay as well, but I got them right as the bootlegs were first beginning to surface. Mine were all loose and came in a bubble mailer, but there was absolutely no damage in transit. They have all their accessories as well.

I was hoping the SDCC 2017 was going to get the bootleg treatment, but I never managed to find any so I purchased each real deal figure separately. Worth it in the end, but I'd much rather pay between $30 - $50 for a knockoff set if they are just as good as the real thing.

I‘m curious if the offers with packaging are legit even when they are from China.

Sorry, I mean the NYCC mirage foot gang.
The Arcade bootlegs are sold in packaging and loose.

Hmm, I'm not so sure I've encountered bootlegs of the NYCC Mirage Shredder/Foot set. I ended up purchasing a set in box from a reputable eBay seller for $100. I felt it was well worth the price considering how much each figure goes for individually.

I totally would have gone the bootleg route for these, but I never found any.

Thatís all Iím seeing too, but a few of them are from China (stellar eBay ratings) so Iím assuming they are bootlegs. Iím trying to talk myself into getting a set, but I have a hard time paying $100+ for bootlegs especially when I donít know the quality.

So I got my bootleg arcade figures (still waiting on the foot ones) and I seriously could not be happier! I took a quick pic with the first real poses I got them in but it doesnít do them justice.
