Found this picture Bootlegs or something else? Snowtr10

Bootlegs or something else? Custom10

Bootlegs or something else? Polish10

And am not sure what I'm looking at... I see the different colored troopers, but how would I go about identifying them & I think the Polish "brand" was Uzay (was it written somewhere on the card or figure???), but not clear on other types...

Has anyone written something up before? I'm coming up short on finding much so far, but I've decided to focus most on the troopers right now, & am trying to compile as complete a list as I've not seen...

Yet...

Hey ki4gsz,
I know very little about bootlegs mate, but Uzay was Turkish
Like this Polish bootleg black stormtrooper in Hoth battle gear cheers
(if that's what it is?)

Umm, huh??? So this Polish figure was sold in Turkey? Or maybe I misunderstood.

Not sure where it was sold mate, all I know is Uzay is a Turkish brand of bootleg.

Oh!!! OK, that makes more sense. LOL, maybe it's time for more coffee (for me)

Thanks Nico

Hi there,

The carded one in your 3rd picture is the only known one and in the collection of JoeY (who else Smile ) It is Polish just like the figures in the top row from your first picture. (First 3 are frm the articulated Polish series, 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation, 2 unarticulated Polish Snowtroopers and the last one from the 1st row is from this particular series)
The 2nd row shows 4 Mexican variants, 1 loose Turkish Uzay and 1 overstock Polish figure. (former JohnG Snowtrooper focus picture)
The middle picture shows a custom figure.

Hope this helps.

Awesome! That does help. Guess the only question now is JoeY?

That would probably be Joseph Yglesias
I believe Joseph is considered THE authority on Uzay bootlegs (among others) and still the owner of possible the most complete & comprehensive bootleg collection in the world.

But it's just a wild guess Very Happy  , and why I'm even raking up 2 months old threads is a mystery to myself also.
Perhaps because my next 'want'is a loose Uzay stormtrooper and i ended up here looking for pics..
