Bootleg V- Italian Visitor Figure

bootleg V - Visitors

As follow-up to our video about bootleg V items (see it here) I took some photos of the Italian Visitor figure I recently picked up. I have to tell you that it’s one of my favourite additions in a while. That is mainly because my V collection is somewhat small.

Unlike many bootleg/knock-off toys, this isn’t repurposed. This company sculpted this specifically for this purpose, and it is really well done. It looks like how a Visitor would be depicted on a book cover or misleading poster.
