Wild West Western Heroes Playset Bootleg figures

Another set of items from the distant island of bootleg toys(there used to be a great website with that exact name!)


Check out the price: 1€ (US$1.33).


These Chap Mei Wild West knock-offs look pretty intense. Considering the original are not that hot.


A year or so ago, when I made a quick reference to these (then) new theme playsets, I remember observing their extremely weak articulation. These bootleg toys obviously following their originals,  are no different. However, they are not so bad, and the accessories are fully integrated and reasonably well constructed.


We already had the chance to review here some really astonishingly well made knock-offs. I imagine that IF I´d get the chance to purchase whatever big playset this line has, KO version, I would. For customizing they are a catch, since the price is really low.


See what I mean? A custom artist find. The long coat even has a hole for the 3 3/4" backpacks, originally meant to pass the "duel at sundown" figure´s button.

    Why don't we get the cheap and cool stuff here?

    They are great man! A nice source for custom parts and even cool figures.

    I would like to see some more of them.

  2. The original ones are not that hot, I wonder why Chap Mei uses those frozen articulation figures.
