    i had Hercules, is he a KO, even though he was advertised in Comic books and made by Remco? he was clearly in the same style as MOTU
    I wish I didn't wait so long to get into Video Games...they are so AWESOME! catching up with Xbox 360 and getting onboard with Xbox One.

    Yes, I think those figures would be knock offs rather than bootlegs.

    that's from Lost World of the Warlord by remco, which isn't really a KO.
    There was a court case where Mattel went after Remco on Copyright and trademark violations and lost.

    They decided that you can't trademark the muscled body and stance, so as long as it isn't a direct copy you're ok.

    Not really interested in bootlegs, but I love the old knock-off lines, especially the various Remco ones (court cases aside, they were knock-offs). Once MOTUC ends it run, I may turn my attention towards building a collection of those guys.
    MOTUC Wishlist: Songster, Evil Robot, Tuvar and Badra, Game Master, Grayskull Robot, Andros, Monstroid, the new villains from He-Ro/Dare

    Other 5.5" compatible lines?

    I've recently become fascinated with this topic.

    I'm aware of Remco's Conan, Warlord, Warrior Beasts, and wrestlers lines, as well as the Galaxy Warriors/Heroes/Fighters range. Anyone know of others, and can you point me to links where I can learn more?
    Please check out my custom figures. The first few stink but I get better.

    I also wrote a fanfic. See the fanfic board. At least four people like it.

    I always liked the Defenders of the Planets line and collected all of them, they fit in perfectly with MOTU imo…
