What is your stance on the ITW figures?


Just as the title says, I know they are not official kenner figures, but are they considered bootlegs, customs, crap, or collectable? Does anybody on here collect them? I have been looking at customized figures and see there are quite a few on here that make customized figures. I just wondered since these ITW figures seem to be all over ebay (and at rather high prices for what they appear to be) if anybody here had much thoughts on them or if any of them are worth getting.

I can say I don't like most of them, but figures like the executioner and captain cold look cool. Some of course are jus ridiculous looking and don't even have the super powers look in my opinion.

After years of seeing these and reading up on them I would call them custom crap.

I'm not a fan of these either and consider them [sign in to see URL] offense to anyone who owns or enjoys collecting them of course!

Some of the character options are nice, but they seem lower quality and really overpriced for what they are, so I've never bought any.

Ken, it is funny you linked that action figure insider article as I found that while trying to research these. I saw how crappy that mirror master was made. I don't understand the prices on these things as they appear to be mass produced bootlegs since they are on eBay in multiples. I was trying to find out when they first began appearing as some of them are based on unproduced actual figures (though the ITW example looks nothing like the hardcopies that exist from what I can tell). I still think a few of them look decent, but most fall into the crap category. The executioner figure and captain cold where the two that looked he best out of what I have seen, but I haven't seen the entire line.

I'd say these first showed up via eBay around 4 to 5 years ago if memory serves me correctly.

I have purchased and sold a Cold. He was a nicer one. I didn't think it fit with my collection of other SP figures.

I agree and would lean closer to the 5 yr. mark.

Originally the character assortment was meh... And the sculpts were garbage, but I will admit through the years the sculpts have improved SOME and the assortment has grown by the dozens.
Also the asking price used to be $20 instead of $50 and they were being sold by one or two sellers. I don't know who or how many sellers there are now.
