The way that licensed products are remixed and reworked in China is endlessly fascinating. Thanks to lax laws (laws that are increasingly less lax), Chinese businesses can get away with things they never could in other countries.
Increasingly, more and more Chinese are turning their noses up at knock-offs, demanding the real deal. Still, I dunno about you, but I’d love to drink Star F**ks coffee while eating Borio cookies and playing the Nintendo PolyStation from Namco in digital stereo.
Have a look at some Chinese knock-offs from the last five (or so) years, including everybody’s favourite Chinese Gundam.
