Penzora, a site that sells minifigs, may be the source of some designs of bootleggers most notably, XINH. I am not saying that they work together, but it really apparent that these designs from XINH are also seen in Penzora.
At first, some may think that may Penzora is the one copying, yet I can't say that because Penzora has more designs. Though another possible thing is that Penzora simply has XINH products plus a couple of other 3rd party customs from other people/brands.
Honestly, that's not my point. I'm just here to show you guys some interesting minifigs!
This one is Nite Owl from the Watchmen series. We see this exact minifig from Penzora and from XINH. The other Watchmen minifigs are there as well at Penzora.
Another example of one of XINH's. Star-Lord from a certain XINH set.
There was also an Emma Frost minifig in Penzora that I think POGO used before. Though I am not completely sure, it is highly possible that POGO took the design from them/other conspiracy theory about bootleggers & third party customizers.
Now onto the ugly designs from the site. The picture says it all.. Looks like a Bucky Barnes Captain America who came out of a meme.
Well there are also some great designs. This one is Ronin, yes he's from Marvel as well, and I think his minifig looks great.
We also have a classic Vision. I really want this, though I think the face could have been done better..
Lastly, a very interesting design. Arnim Zola, Captain America's enemy. Yes that's how he really looks like but I do prefer his look in Lego Marvel games, but that variant seems too difficult to make for customizers. I'd be happy with this Arnim Zola.
In the end, when browsing for 3rd party minifigs, I still prefer looking at minifigure.co.uk rather than penzora.co.uk. I really hope that XINH, POGO, and other bootleggers choose better designs to copy. I mean, you're already copying designs so why not just copy the good ones already?
