I've been recently admiring the polish bootleg series made my electroplas(?!). There seems to be loads of sites showing the various colour variants for these figures but none of them specify which weapon belongs to which character.

Can anybody help?

Help is coming soon..... via www.theouterrealmsw.com lots of work still being done

BUT for the time being,common sense works for most, typically stormtrooper guns go w. stormtroopers and Fetts, Zuckuss rifles go w. Zuckuss etc.

Cheers

Thanks Joe, I'll keep an eye on your site. It seems old that there are so may bootleg g.i.joe guns mixed up with them alot of the time. I've also see the green weapon chests full of mixed guns which I think were sold separately to the figures.

It seems I need to investigate further before taking the plunge.

Typically it's only the Evanplast figures(2nd/3rd and later figures that have the Joe weapons as well as SW weapons.
The Elektrospóldzielnia figures(1st gen) typically came with the correct or fairly close to correct weapons.

Not familiar with the weapons chests,those may be something that was part of Evaplasts GI Joe bootleg line. but the SW weapons were definitely sold bagged on a card.


I'm in the middle of working on that section, as well as working on the early US section all at the same time.

Cheers
Joe

That's definitely something that went with the GI Joe line, they may have come with SW weapons in them at times, but the military stylings of it are more consistent with Joe than SW. Not saying that I wouldn't want one if it came up, but the SW weapons packs came more like this:

also the colored weapons that he shows lower on the same page are 1st gen weapons not 2nd or 3rd.
