BOOTLEG: “Especial” Superman figure – China (2004*)


This bootleg “Especial” Superman figure from China stands at sixteen inches tall and features a tiny light below the ‘S’ symbol that is powered by two AA batteries.  It has seven points of articulation which include the knees.  The card at the top shows a Zorro logo and a Batman logo and features a spider web design implying that there was a Spider-Man figure as well.  The body of the figure was obviously used to produce numerous other superheroes.  Take a look at the figure’s left hand and you’ll see what I mean.

*I picked up this figure in Singapore in 2004.  There is no date indicated on the figure or its packaging, so I’m considering it to be from that year.
