The ten best high-end bootleg toys you can buy right now

48 second read


If tween Darryn could see some of the toys I had now, he’d be amazed at what the future holds. He’d also get a massive smack against the head the second he put his greasy paws on my prized possessions, and hey I have a new scar on my head. ANYWAY! If you’re looking to invest in toys that will be worth a few bucks in the future, then be prepared to pay plenty for the right to house a few sixth-scale beauties on your shelf, before you pack them away as you work out how to install a UV-proof glass cabinet in your room.

Hot Toys may be the Ferrari of realistic collectibles, but they’re not the only game in town. Especially when there’s a buck to be made selling less than legal bootleg toys in the process.

While you’ll seldom find any of these figures locally, they’re more than easy enough to import thanks to the miracle of the internet. Now to see if I can get one of these brands to make a sixth-scale figure of yours truly, complete with a Kung-Fu action grip that was born from years of loneliness and an uncapped connection to the web.
