Long time, no post. Its been over a month since my last on. When I found this at the local store and decided I just had to put it up.
Here is a knock off of a Bandai robot from the 90’s. Its the Jet Icarus from the tv show Chojin Sentai Jetman in 1991. The Hawk Overlord Polyfect Toys figure is only $7.99 at your local Tuesday Morning if they have them. It’s the cheapest way to pickup a Jet Icarus figure aside from getting a Soul of Hyper Figuration figure on Ebay. Otherwise a 8″ plastic 1990’s version will run you $140 – $200.
If you don’t mind a cheap plastic robot that does not have the quality of Bandai made product, it’s not bad. The store also had a “Change Robot” that was of even lesser quality. Now that was an ugly robot. I should probably put it up with the other bootlegs I have posted. Sometimes the uglier it is , the better it is to gawk at. Anyway, the Hawk Overlord looks pretty decent for what it is. Polyfect puts out a decent looking bootleg. It looks like one of the nicer robots from this line, like the Voltron and Constructicon knock offs they put out. Based on the instructions on the back, it looks like it actually transforms! I am tempted to pick one up for fun. I am curious to see how well they transform and get a closer look at the finish and quality.
