I've seen a few as well, including Hurricanger rip off figures. I usually see them at dollar stores.

And I once saw a picture of a figure which had Kamen Rider Ryuki's head and limbs on a Gundam torso. Or maybe it was the other way around?

Ah, the beauty of Chinese knock-offs. I once bought a set of Gaoranger DVD with the cover being a photoshopped Ultraman.

You know, some Japanese actually made a book about bootlegs toys found in Asia

Here are some scans of the book:

And here's an interview with the author if you understand Japanese. Just ignore the female MC as she's just translating what he said to Mandarin.

One of my favorite is this. In the description it says it's based on Travellion from Magiranger.
A Thomas Travellion... it's just wrong on so many levels :P

And this looks like the henshin device G-Phone from Gaoranger

Those DecaDrivers actually look cooler than the original, which is quite a feat since bootlegs tend to have colorblind color schemes.
