I bought some of those knock-off Lego Superheroes Big Figs from ebay. Are they safe?

this is specifically the one I got, simply because i wanted rhino. Anyone have any experience with these? even if they do use lead paint as long as im not eating it is it fine?

    No-one's using lead paint. It's not going to spontaneously combust or fly off the shelf into your face. And I wouldn't recommend eating actual lego either.

    If you wash your hands after playing with them and before handling food, don't pull them apart (except as intended), and don't use them for chew toys, I don't see a safety issue.

    Not a safety issue necessarily, just an ethical issue of knowingly buying a knock off that is likely not an authorized copy from Marvel or LEGO.
    Yeah exactly, I think it's perfectly safe; I'm pretty sure.  It's just not lego.... :(

    I guess I'm just paranoid as I haven't even opened the box they were shipped in. I have terrible luck when it comes to these things. I'd probably get sick of I opened it.

    The box may be filled with the breath of the fake Lego overlord.

    ^ Since the knockoffs are from Shanghai, China, he better hope that it is the breath of the fake Lego overlord in the box. Shanghai air probably could make someone sick.

    ^ Could?!?

    I'm pretty sure we would confuse a cubic foot of Shanghai air for a concrete parking pylon!  Air should not be chewy.

    You should probably open it. With their quality there are probably misprints, and when I had misprints they just refunded me 100% and let me keep the figures :D

    You'll live. I just wouldn't let kids play with them.
