    Yes! I love the Bootlegging of the Zones! Here’s why I think:

    I had a friend growing up that often would get a lot of toys from flea markets and garage sales and we were really imaginative and could come up with a way to integrate just about any odd toy into some grand narrative…and often these would be imports, Chinese or Mexican knock offs, or some kind of bootleg.

    I am absolutely positive at some point one of us had a Galaxy Warrior, or I saw them at a local Woolworth’s or other “Five and Dime” (the rough equivalent to today’s Dollar store) or have some connection to this massive universe…or galaxy or figures, re-issues, bootlegs, re-molds, and knock offs. It also helps I’m an 80s kid and watched He-Man (and had the figures) and all the big action packed licensed toy-commercial cartoons as well.

    Keep sending us down the Galaxy hole and more bootleg zones!

    If some of those figures are knockoffs of Freedom Fighters, I’d like to believe they were called Freedom Heroes or Freedom Warriors.

    And we have the return of Baltard, the Wabuu of Bootleg Zones.

    Freedom Fighters, eh? I don’t remember these guys fighting Dr. Robotnick.

    Maybe the ones that don’t have the Sungold logo were done by Remco or Sewco.

    Gargoyles Protector? I wonder if there are any Disney Gargoyles toys about the same size.

    Did they paint Primus’ nipples?

    Those Dinosaur faces are hilariously derpy.

    The Galaxy Hole never stops, it just keeps growing.

    How the hell do you even keep track of which Baltard belongs to which line?

    Have you seen the Troll Force toys with GW bodies? I thought they were Customs, but there are many in packaging. There’s a ton of them on collectors.com
