Bootleg Super Heroes minifigs - worth it or not?

Recommended Posts

cool... may the next set contain saturn girl,superman-brainiac and that gray/blue batman from the "cosmic clash" movie.

Frankly I'd be happy if we got a Jay Garrick, maybe a Vibe or Killer Frost. Or some Legends of Tomorrow. As you may have guessed, I'm a bit of a CW DC fan. Except Arrow. Arrow is dead.

I know there's been talk on here before about how people display their collection. I've opted for the frames-on-a-wall approach, and so I've been thinking about what superhero/supervillain groups I can represent with the figures I have. So far I have:

The Avengers (Cap, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk)

New Avengers (Witch, Vision, War Machine, Falcon)

Civil War recruits (Spidey, Ant Man, Winter Soldier, Panther) - not really a team, I grant you

Shield (Fury, Maria Hill, Widow, Hawkeye)

Fantastic Four

Guardians of the Galaxy (Star Lord, Drax, Gamora, Rocket - brick-built Groot sits on top of the frame)

X-Men (haven't worked out how many frames I need for this lot, how to group them or which figures to use)

Netflix Defenders (Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones)

Thunderbolts (Punisher, Deadpool, Agent Venom, Elektra)

I have a larger frame to house the villains, but two frames for specific teams:

Brotherhood of Mutants (Magneto, Mystique, Sabertooth, Quicksilver)

Masters of (Zemo, Ultron, Whiplash, Absorbing Man)

The last two are perhaps not as obviously recognisable as teams, but u like having a couple of supervillain groups and I can't think of any others. Can't fit the Sinister Six into one frame.

Any suggestions/thoughts?

I ran across these Kazi Spider-man sets on Aliexpress the other day. I actually bought these a few years ago on eBay before this whole bootleg craze even got started. I remember thinking back then that with all of the Lego knock off companies out there, why aren't more of them doing their own superhero sets like this, there would definitely be a good market for it... Back then there was like a handful of lesser known companies doing fake Spider-mans, but Kazi was the only one I saw doing another character, even though he's kind of a made up Green Goblin/Doc Ock hybrid. Now there's almost more bootleg superhero companies than I can keep track of, and the amount of stuff we've gotten is way more than I would have expected back then.

I bought the little jeep set, just to get the villain (even though it looks nothing like a real character). It's cool that they went Mega Bloks style for the Spidey head. The bricks stank though and needed lots of airing.

Kraven the hunter from POGO real pictures!

Looks good. Shame it doesn't have the fur collar from the official figure, but maybe Xinh will make one with it if/when they make the figures from the new spiderman sets.

Also, not sure if people here have seen it yet, but it appears Xinh are doing mid-scale BvS batmobile and batwing.

Does anyone know much about the seller "Minifigures Wholesale" (http://www.aliexpres...108.0.31.RPjXSs)? I've had an order "shipped" a month ago and I've not received it yet. Not sure whether I should give them more time or open a dispute.

Ordered the KF Black Panther from them and well received it.

I ordered the Xinh Baron Zemo on 20th May, hasn't arrived yet.

My order is the same Zemo, along with the Scarlet Witch and other figures from that wave. Ordered on the 23rd May, so I guess I'll give them a another week or two and see what happens. On that note though, has anyone received their Xinh Baron Zemo, Scarlet Witch, Giant man, and/or Crossbones yet? Just I figured if one figure from that wave is delayed production, that might explain it.

I've used them a lot. Majority of the time I've had no issues. They do seem to take longer to arrive than some other sellers I've used.

The issues I have had with them has been down to figure issues and it takes forever to get resolved due to the language barrier.

Took me 4 months to get the right Daredevil figure once.

There is minifigure wholesale, minifigures wholesale. And then a few with those exact same names that are different shops.

If it is this minifigures wholesale http://www.aliexpres...rtType=new_desc

Then they have always delivered quickly and fixed any problem with an order rapidly :)

There are currently orders from them that haven't arrived as the figures such as xinh zemo, giant man weren't ready yet.

BTW 12 nexus nights, with one of the large armour figs, some of the smaller ones, printed spell books and unique weapons etc £5.61 http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Nexus-Knights-The-Fortrex-combination-Castle-8pcs-lot-Building-Block-Set-Clay-Aaron-Fox-Axl-Minifigure/32688081606.html?spm=2114.13010208.99999999.261.ImeBc1

I still have not received my wave also. I ordered on the 25th. I'm giving it until this week.

I emailed them and they claimed there was a shipping problem. They said they'll send more out. Really!!!
