Hi,

Just got a vintage bootleg, bought in east Germany in the eighties. To me it looks like one of the smaller Dutch bootlegs but I'm feeling unsure. Maybe you guys can enlighten me further. Got some pics of him here: https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=7188B9E4FCAFB059!785&authkey=!AJtTRlulKiJEVOw

Looks like its molded in a red rubbery plastic and then painted in some metalized/bronze color...
What do you think if it? Is it worth anything?

Thanks!

/Johan

I think you're right about it being a Dutch bootleg, it certainly seems to match the one on the archive.  Obviously the size is different, but there was a mini version of the Vader too.

I´ve also seen a small version of R2D2, on the left in the picture below:

I still need that illusive small R2... and a small Chewie if it exists.
