Bootleg Alert! Hasbro Spidey and Carnage

This is Loosecollector Customs. Where we put bootleggers in tight underpants, and give them a wedgie.
We've found out that the ENTIRE "Spiderman Infinite" line has been bootlegged and sold as a lot in the grey market. You will see the figs... Superior Spidey, Black Cat, Movie Spidey, Movie Electro, Beetle, Carange and BAF Goblin all jammed together inside a cheap plastic bag.

We would like to thank Jimmy Tan of Divisoria Mall, for donating the bootlegs and MarvelLegends.Net
for the pics of the original ones. Thank you guys!

Today we'll show you Spidey and Carnage. Sorry, no side by side comparison for now :(.
I had the legit figures before, but used them already as custom fodder.
On all the pics, left side is the bootleg, right side is the original item. At first glance, the most obvious differences are...

FAKE - sloppy paintjob and the colors do not align with the sculpt (see Carnage's eyes and teeth), dull coloring
ORIGINAL - sharp painted lines, vibrant plastic colors

But, if you are shopping for one of these guys and you don't have an original one in hand, the best way to find out is with the eyes.
The fake ones have SILVER eyes while the original ones have distinctively WHITE ones.

 Hope this helps guys. Keep loving the hobby :)!

Disassembled: 2-pack Conan (Toybiz)

This is Loosecollector Customs. Where we destroy perfectly good (and sometimes expensive) figures, so you don't have to :D. 

Today we operate on our favorite bare-chested fodder, Toybiz Conan from the LCBH 2-pack.
Thanks to our friends, JC of Milwaukee for donating the sexy Dremel & Punisher, and Donna of Manila for the Conan. You rock!

And here you go...

Other figures using this body:

Toybiz Faceoff Sabretooth shares the same chest (retooled for the fur), ab-part and biceps.

We have also made an upgrade of this figure, that you can view by clicking on the picture below...

Hope this helps guys. God bless!
