    Check out my site at www.action-figures.ca. There are gallery sections on both Galaxy Warriors & Fighters. I still have a few other bootleg lines to add as well, in the near future. The forums also have a ton of info on allot of these lines.
    Visit The Action Figure Archive Forums to discuss, buy, sell & trade action figure lines of the 70s, 80s & 90s. Remember to checkout the action figure guide and online store on the site as well!

    oh man there are endless bootlegs of motu, not all are exact copies (like galaxy warriors)

    but you got, muscle warriors:

    rullers of the sun

    Guerreros del espacio

    these weirdos:

    galaxy fighters, which are galaxy warriors knock offs (LOL?)


    and i can think of about a couple more, but unfortunately i can't find the pics

    Galaxy fighters are not ko's of galaxy warriors they are more or less the successors to this line. They share some of the same characters and gf figures can be found on gw cards.

    I myself am always on the lookout for motu ko's (anything supporting a motu body) and sometimes have stuff to trade (will trade for other ko's)

    I think the company tried to make about 999 of the white & black version but only made 400-500 of each. The other colours are limited to about 99 . The line is featured in the bootleg section of the Org Link

    They are some awesome figures & look great next original carded figs

    I probably overpaid.... I spent $129. I've seen them for $30, $50, $65, $100. I saw one with a buy it now, and wanted it, so I bought it.

    Apparently the red ones are a little bit harder to get. I've personally always liked the ones mis-cast with the see-through.

    I got one of those combo fighters arriving in mail next week. Thanks to this thread I found out what it is :P its the one with a white chicken head and and white boots.
    I'ts in a lot with a few galaxy fighters and some strange indian which looks like a motu knock off.

    Anyone know what the indian is?

    It's the best pic I got since they have not arrived yet. I won the auction so cheap that I felt I had to at least give the seller 3dollar to go to the office and send it, poor girl.

    I was thinking about selling them but I don't know what the guy on the left is yet? Both of them have the exact same body, just painted different colors. The heads are solid and it looks like everything has been hand-painted. No markings anywhere.
