Poor Dengar can't catch a break. Here's another oddity from Ebay:

This seems as good a place as any to put this photo. My collection of Chinese "BootLego" characters continues to grow slowly. As you can see, some are real winners (that Lego needs to make), but some just aren't. The large Lizard was a particular disappointment, and needs to be repainted.
