Bootlegs at the flea market
I helped T-Bear set up her booth at the Berkeley flea market this morning (she was selling some handmade greeting cards), but when I walked around to check out the other vendors I found one booth selling horrible, HORRIBLE bootlegs. And not even funny bootlegs--where Superman has a crooked "S" and is packaged as "Space Patrol"--these were just pure crapulence.
You probably can't tell from the photo above, but the Thing was just a repainted Hulk with an incorrect Fantastic Four logo on his chest--he wasn't even made of rocks, just smooth and orange...with ripped pants.
After I took that picture, the old chinese lady running the booth shot me a dirty look and I quickly walked away.
