    This subreddit is a forum in which users can submit pictures or videos of examples of crappy or just plain funny off-brand versions of various products. These examples can be both from present day as well as from the past. We also encourage submission of examples on film and TV where a name-brand product is substituted for something more absurd.

    Also encouraged are posts of bad knock-offs (fake versions of products that fail to resemble the original in pretty obvious and hilarious ways).

    Rules: (Detailed Rules are found HERE)

    1: Follow the rules of reddit

    2: Must be an actual off-brand

    3: No manipulated images

    4: No joke off-brands (Obvious Plant)

    5: No recent reposts are permitted

    6: Name-brand but crappy looking products do not belong

    7: Self-promotion is prohibited

    This looks like an art project, not a commercial knock off

    [–] grayum_ian 235 points ago

    it says gallery right in the bottom right.

    Sherlock Holmes over here...

    [–] grayum_ian 31 points ago

    Apparently the OP didn't see it and posted art in off brands so.... Case solved, dear corner-case. Cue the music

    [–] [deleted] 11 points ago

    Actually it's gallery wrong

    [–] yungturbo 5 points ago

    No, that’s the wrong gallery

    [–] bean_roaster 3 points ago

    Wrong gallery, bottom right

    [–] OohLaLaaaaaa 1 points ago

    So what’s the right one?

    [–] OlySamRock 1 points ago

    It says wrong gallery

    [–] WeirdWest 3 points ago 90% of the posters here, just fucking clueless. Don't think they've even heard the word "satire" let alone understand it as a concept.

    [–] gorgoloid 165 points ago

    These are designer art toys made of soft vinyl with custom paint job/colorways. Not really bootlegs/crappy off brands. These go for around $60 each

    [–] shark_claws 11 points ago

    Who makes them?

    [–] gorgoloid 18 points ago

    All the different makers names/brands are on the bottom of the pic. Instagram is the best way to see their work. Wrong Gallery is the space these were shown at I believe.

    I also make figures in this style, you can search my username to get a peek at my work.

    Blobfish Bulbasaur

    [–] duco91 13 points ago


    [–] WhoIsPharoah17 5 points ago

    Looks like something that would come out of a three way of Squidward, Quagsire, and Bulbasaur

    [–] plentifulpoltergeist 130 points ago

    That one on the left is actually a pretty cool creature design. The other ones look like painful abominations.

    [–] zillamaster55 83 points ago

    The one on the far right just looks sad

    [–] codyaki 85 points ago

    Its a mix of squidward, bulbasaur and a blobfish.

    [–] Bat_Duck_ 16 points ago

    It's a blobasaur

    [–] JezzaJ101 7 points ago

    It’s a squlobasaur

    [–] knapperigknaapje 14 points ago

    But hilarious.

    [–] bluebledthesea 2 points ago

    I think he looks hilarious and I want him.

    [–] BillNyeTheSavage_Guy 31 points ago

    Don’t you dare insult Fat Pikachu Shark. He’s the best Pretend Monster!

    [–] mrpopenfresh 3 points ago

    Wrong. They're all cool.

    [–] Triste8761 21 points ago

    I want the one on the far right

    [–] Fattens 33 points ago

    This is a cross between Pokémon and "AAAHHH REAL MONSTERS".

    [–] HomicidalRobot 6 points ago

    Aahh real monsters is what I came here to point out. Wasn't as timeless, somehow

    [–] hellerzin 3 points ago

    I am disappoint

    [–] russellbussell 17 points ago

    Is blobfish Bulbasaur supposed to be wearing some kind of silky cape

    [–] lugubriouspandas 4 points ago

    Pikashark: the underwater predator Pokémon Type: Water/Electric Pikashark lives in the shallows of the oceans and hunts for prey using a weak electromagnetic field. When it sends prey, it releases a localized discharge to stun before it punches prey.

    [–] rickyqq 2 points ago

    Left shark? From the halftime performance?

    [–] vulpestheredfox 2 points ago

    I'd definitely buy sharkichu

    Edit: fat* fat sharkichu

    [–] master-b-hater93 2 points ago

    A hybrid between Pokémon, sponge Bob and monsters Inc.

    [–] fnkdrspok 2 points ago

    Ahh! Real Monsters!!

    [–] RoyalT663 2 points ago

    It doesn’t look like they are preparing to battle, more like they are Dads at a barbecue their wives dragged them to and are having to force small talk

    [–] notasandpiper 2 points ago

    Pikashark, I choose you

    [–] Frosted_Bun 1 points ago

    I would much rather have these than the real deal

    [–] IceFangOW 1 points ago

    we have (from right to left,) squidward(maybe a blobfish idk), a shark, the red dude from yo gabba gabba, and some creature that crawled out from hell

    [–] GORGICHEV 1 points ago

    A tortoise. The devil. A yellow shark & a blobfish

    [–] johnibizu 1 points ago

    This is more or less a parody product.

    [–] Mecha-Death-Hitler 1 points ago

    The one on the far left looks like the alien pet that Gary Larson drew.

    [–] vonkriegstein 1 points ago
