Los Guerreros Transformados are a new series of bootlegs from BigManToys. These pay homage to the randomly colored Mexican Masters Of The Universe bootlegs of yore. They've been cast in flexible rubber and are of the same scale as MOTU figures...meaning you can use and swap accessories. Each figure includes a sword, an axe, or a lazer pistol. You can pick one up now for $44.00 a pop.
