Bootleg Toys

For every random item out there, someone collects like, like this guy who collects bootleg toys.

And thank goodness he’s obsessive about putting his collection online as he is about collecting Spader-man and scary-looking Incredible Hulk knockoffs. Some of the knockoffs are actually decent, others are awful, and some are just bizarre (a mulleted Man of Steel?).

Actually, the "mulleted man of steel" is entirely accuracte to the comic book version from the mid 1990s. So blame the artists at DC for that particular fuck-up.



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
