Guys has anybody noticed ebay has cracked down on SW bootlegs? affraid 
For the last month or so ive been putting in what i usually put in google search ''star wars bootleg ebay'' nothing at all is showing up, usually i would get a page with 40+ items, but noting the last month.

Ive been searching 'mexican star wars bootleg ebay' same with polish, hardly anything is coming up, seems even the modern stuff has gone missing too.

Has anybody else noticed this? or has somehow my google search crashed?

What do you guys type in to find ebay bootlegs?

Anybody have any good tips?

Cheers and thanks

I've recently started collecting Hungarian & Polish bootlegs in the last 6 months and the pickings on ebay are slim and far between.

Then again I'm finding the pickings slim for all aspects of variant collecting, maybe due to the 'Disney effect' and collectors are keeping items hold up in black hole collections? Maybe nearer the release of Episode VII the market will become saturated with people trying to cash in?

I dont really have the problem when I search on ebay.com but next to nothing shows up when I search from the ebay-page of my country and put in "worldwide".

I usually do a search for "bootleg star wars figures" on Ebay. Right now there are a lot there but not so much vintage, perhaps it may just be a slow time in the market which happens from time to time. There are a lot of more modern pieces (POTF2, Ep1, 2) and such on there though. I usually do a search for Mexican bootlegs quite often and there have not been too many of those there as well.

I never really noticed as I don't really collect bootleg ones but I just gave it a try by typing "vintage star wars bootlegs" and I came up with this for worldwide

http://www.ebay.ca/sch/i.html?_odkw=star+wars+bootlegs&_dcat=220&_osacat=220&_from=R40&LH_PrefLoc=2&Character%2520Family=Star%2520Wars&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xvintage+star+wars+bootlegs&_nkw=vintage+star+wars+bootlegs&_sacat=0

Hope this helps you bootleg guys out a bit.
