The Hamburglar’s Autograph (eBay Link) — My friend Courtney sent me this, and well, I didn’t know this was a thing.

Space Flyman and Punchboy set (eBay Link) — This Dynamic Duo is one of the earliest pair of Knock-Off Action figures but probably the earliest Super Hero Knock-Offs as well.

Fantastic Four Water Pistol (eBay Link) — France’s Pin Pin Toys carried a ton of products from Mego and AHI but also made their own products like this pretty non-descript water gun.

Marchon Action Heroes Transport (eBay Link) — This¬† Super Powers Knock-Off toy came out when I was in the ninth grade, and I HAD TO HAVE IT, which was weird for me, at least at that time. I think it was the packaging, which truly reminds me of Mego Superheroes artwork, is the trigger here. […]
