I know that this should just be in the bootleg thread, but I like to show off new ugly figures. Here we have some Mexi/SA bootlegs I got in the mail today. Ugly huh? My favorite is the grey unpainted 3PO.

Funny story to go along too. I live in Canada but have packages from the US shipped to my US P.O. Box. I live really close to the US border with Canada. Anyway on my way back into Canada the border guard at the gate noticed the box the figures came in in the passenger seat. She asked what was in the box. I've delt with this lady many times. I said toys. She asked to see the box. She looks in the box and says "What the hell are these??" I tell her Star Wars figures. She says, "I thought Leia was dressed in white?" I just thought it was cool she knew who Leia was even in her purple bootleg state. Before i pulled away she said her ids old SW toys may be at her house somewhere. She said if she found any she'd stop into work and see me. Here's hoping Smile

Thanks Rebojazz. These are really cool.

Got some additions today in the mail for my loose collection. Thanks Wouter.

The dust in the Wequays face makes him look like Jabba had him on extended guard duty.

Nice buys everyone (I'd have to go about 40 back to give you all the praise you deserve, sorry guys).

Here's one of mine. Not recently purchased (December), but recently photographed. It's a Palitoy Dagobah playset. It's really cool because it has no box insert like the Kenner version.

Congrats Marco, good thing you managed to ignore the alarm bells. Luke Jedi's a right greedy beggar with all his accessories & variations - and now we learn he's also added a green cape, black gun and pinched a Madine staff too!
lol!

LUKE: 'Ah, I'm just trying to picture Madine's face when he realises I've stolen his staff and replaced it with a giant stick of celery.'


Adolfo - congrats on the two LL mocs! Very nice.
Emiel - great work on that minty Pal Dagobah set Cool

Ok let's go through this week's newest stuff. I wonder how many bootlegs I will encounter this time. Very Happy

@merlin wrote:


I don´t recall that, but I´m sure that there is a great possibility of happening, LL stories are crazy, but most of them are true!!!!

Great finding..... even if it´s a madine staff , is very rare to get it!!

Adolfo: I agree, Ledy stories are always interesting, I hope to tell you guys another one in a few weeks.

@ratherchildish wrote:
Great story Marco. And to answer the question -- the electronics only half work. The bulb lights up but the chin guns fail to move. I'm fairly sure I can turn that around by just opening up the AT-ATs head and giving that tiny motor some manual rotations.

Speaking of vehicle repairs, anyone experienced with fixing the wings of the Imperial Shuttle? I have all of the gears and guts assembled to replace the broken pieces currently inside, but I'd love to consult with someone before going into surgery! PM me if you've been down this road.

Pete: Thanks! Here and here you can find some info about repairing a vintage AT AT and modern shuttle. All modern releases of the shuttle are based on the vintage model, so the tips and tricks might work for you too.

Dallas: Nice Klaatu and Leia bootleg. From where?

Paul: Sweet Mexican bootlegs and a great background story with the sympatric border patrol. The purple Leia is my favorite this time, purple can make a woman look so elegantly.

Your latest Vintage Purchases! Volume 4!!! - Page 37 Purple-lady

Adolfo: You managed to pick up some great Ledy MOCs lately: Zuckuss, Lando, Leia poncho, Rebel Commander, Chief Chirpa. Congrats! Do you aim to get a complete Ledy run in the end?

Paul: Some nice figures thanks to Wouter. Looking at the picture I suddenly realized Weequay might be the only vintage figure which was designed to hold a weapon with both hands, giving him a natural pose. Anyone?

Emiel: Great Dagobah playset! Without an insert how did Palitoy prevent Yoda's home from flying through the box during shipment?
BTW: Didn't find an Emiel grade Taun Taun in Utrecht today.

Paul: lol! , seriously man, what a great joke!!

I spent some time at a collector's fair in Utrecht today. Unfortunately there was not that much vintage SW (mostly modern). Nevertheless I managed to pick up a few small things. I will make a pic tomorrow.

Nice weekend!

As always, cool finds guys!

Really cool bootlegs, and I totally dig the Lili Ledy MOC!! Laughing

That Luke Jedi with Madine staff is just a totally cool story, too.

Keep 'em coming; I love checking out this thread!

Thanks guys. And thanks Marco for looking out for me in Utrecht. I will try to join you there in November this year.

About the Dagobah set: it doesn't need an insert as it fits the box perfectly. I guess the shape of the box is different.

Here's what I picked up at the post office yesterday. Got stung with customs fees, but I knew that was going to happen & it was worth it:

Great pick ups everyone! Some great looking items!

Dr. D - the bootlegs are Mexican.

Here's an update to my Polish gems, mostly unarts with a 1st gen snoowtrooper, a 2nd gen Gunner (the black one), 3rd gen AT AT Driver, and Delux AT AT Driver (the lime green one).
