The Christmas shopping starts here - with Spader Man figures!

4 May 2010

There’s Batman on a pink-maned pony (he’s now renamed SilverBat) or there’s the steel-eyed star of the 1980s hit movie, Robert Cop.

Customs officers in the EU seized 178 million counterfeit goods in 2008, with counterfeited toys increasing by 136%. Last week, authorities in Xiamen smashed up more than one million fake items that had been seized when they drove a steamroller over them.

Hopefully it was driven by SilverBat.

    From the Spaderman packaging: "specifications, colours, and contents may vary from illustrations" So, everything then?

    Robert Cop for PM. My only question is who the funk the toy is aimed at as surely kids today are a little out of touch with 80s icons?
