    Crime Lime & Techno-Tiki (Vintage knock off / bootleg style)

    I have come to appreciate the “bootleg” and “knock off” toys both vintage and modern. I thought I’d try to make some of my own.

    Crime Lime – Leader of the Nefarious Fruit Punch Gang




    Techno-Tiki
    Real Name: Techno-Tiki
    There came a time when Tiki-Man grew tired of fighting evil. Though weary he knew he could not leave Hala Kahiki island unprotected. Tiki-Man used a combination of advanced technology and island magic to create a magnificent robot in his own image. The brave and heroic Techno-Tiki now defends Hala Kahiki and is much beloved by its people. Much like a watch he is powered by a complex system of gears and springs. It is said that he is wound up just long enough to last until Tiki-Man's return.

    Techno-Tiki is the best character ever made. Bar none.

    Haha, I love these guys!

    Does Crime Lime's head come from the Annoying Orange line?

    Awesome customs. Fantastic execution on the paint and fusion of the parts and style. They look truly bootleg (in a good way)! They remind me of the Mannix style bootlegs.

    Great work!

    Wow. I don't usually marvel over vintage customs, but these are perfect. Well made, well painted, and so clever and whimsical. Out of the park my friend.
