I think the Griffin's body is definitely something from Mega Blocks, the company responsible for the plasma dragons and other stuff like it that comes in an egg and you have to build. I don't really care for those, but I can recognise the sculpt any day.
Ah yes, the Darkness Warriors. I've seen them so many times now I've actually had enough of them, but I always like the countless packaging variations that stuff like this gets. The weapons included in these sets do have some merit, though!
I've seen sets similar to these too. Are they Chap Mei knockoffs? They don't look much like something sculpted by Chap Mei...
No, these are definitely not Chap Mei sculpts. If anything they're Imaginext inspired KOs but of poor quality... I'll let this one slide because some of the weapons that I've seen in conjunction with these figures are Chap Mei ;D
Super Dragons suffered from having every non-screwed part held on by poor quality hot glue. As a result, my Slime's lion had the entire upper part of his head wobbling around in the packaging when I bought it.
I would like to customize that boat!
You can probably find a real Chap Mei one if you look in the right places, bro!
ahh, that's horrible that these were bootlegged. This Spino's from Dino Curse, not Dragon Curse and particularly Dragon Curse II (or Monster Curse) is high on my list to get. If there's bootlegs circulating that will complicate things, as they're really hard to tell apart from a distance in an ebay lot for example.
Good find, particularly good shot of the hydra-like dragon in green on the side.
Finally the long awaited Dinosaur set that popped up on ebay and has been making some noise over in the Watch Tower section. I'll settle this debate now and say this is a bootleg I know, I know many of you including myself wanted this to be a new Chap Mei set sold in the U.S.. It is made by a company called Adventure Planet and you can view there website at advenplanet.com From inside the packaging it does look like a convincing Chap Mei set. However once I opened the package which is nice packaging by the way. The figures are less then sub par. The figure does appear to be a kit bash of several Chap Mei figures with cheap plastic and a really bad paint job. The video camera accessory is basically to pieces of plastic with 2 screws holding it together. The set also comes with a bush, props for sticking in a plant for added detail. The motorcycle is actually the nicest part of the set has a nice dinosaur expedition decal on each side. The motorcycle does have moving wheels and a turning front wheel action. The drivers seat is way to big for 3 3/4" figures and will likely split your figures crotch in half. Finally "sigh" the dinosaur. The "Raptor" appears to be the same mold as the CM Dino Quest Velociraptor and includes moving arms and legs but no action feature. It is alright for a bootleg and sure there are plenty of Chap Mei bootlegs out there, but hey, if Chap Mei refuses to sell there product to the U.S. then we are going to buy these bootlegs. If you are interested in purchasing this set you can buy them over at thedinosaurpark.com.
