These may not be the

These may not be the flashiest or most articulated type of toys made but I have a place in my heart for them because as a kid we couldn't afford the bigger better stuff like Transformers, Lionbot etc.

So while everyone had Optimus Primes, I had small plastic bootlegs of Xabungles, Dunbines, orguss, dairugger, golions, valkyries etc. my mom worked in an area in NYC where bootleg and japanese toys could be found. these types of bootlegs were EVERYWHERE.. and they were cheap. I still have em and love em. they held me over till my uncle got me a deluxe Daitarn and my stepfather got me Daltanias..grandma a yellow lion,followed later on by a Voltron 1 from my mom.. these were responsible for the unstoppable gokin spending that is my life today.

Im gonna see if I can find one of these now, I like it.

Great toy

I'm glad this one came up. The box alone elevates this sucker. I believe there are some characters from the show depicted on the sides, but I could be mistaken. I had this guy a few years ago and eventually turned him around like I do with all boots, so it's nice to see him getting some respect on CDX.

Chachi is right, bootlegs toys are a gateway to the real thing like a licensed/ Americanized version can only hope to be.

I believe so. Bootlegs of

I believe so. Bootlegs of original Super Sentai DX molds sometimes work better than their US counterparts. Take Dai Bouken for example. All the Gou Gou Gattai pieces from the bootlegs are similar in size to the Japanese version as opposed to the larger and bulkier US versions. The bootlegs did have Siren Builder but I failed to see any Dai Voyager bootlegs yet.
