Thanks Andy! That yellow Fett was a big surprise. And to find him bagged on that rare header card is an even bigger surprise. He's definitely my biggest find in years. The older Mexican/SA figures include some of the rarest bootlegs out there today, some have yet to be discovered. As unpopular and untapped as this line of bootlegs is, it is by far the toughest line to complete! After 7 years I'm still struggling to complete a set of every character. Not even Uzays are that difficult. With this line it's not even the matter of having the money to buy them, it's finding some of these characters and variants that is the toughest challenge. I currently have almost 250 different variants and still have many more to go!

Thanks guys! Yea, Joe's room is getting kind of full, huh. As far as any new limelights, I have no plans yet. I've already made a couple promises to take updated pics of my POTF2 bootlegs first... then I need to find time to do that. The yellow Fett I believe was made the same time as the AtAt Driver, not only same color plastic but also same color paints were used.

never worry.....There's always room at Mos Yglesias for more bootlegs celebrate

Unfortunately too much room in my wallet lately making new acquisitions a bit harder. Sad

I've got some sales coming up, to pay down debts and get the wallet ready for battle in 2013. Looks like it's gonna be a good year to be a bootleg collector. cheers

Cheers

I'm pretty new here but i'm a huge Fett fan. Just now getting into bootlegs after getting interested in the hunt more than the acquisition. I just love the odd ball stuff - I used to collect error cards and factory defects but the bootlegs seem more interesting. I had no idea how many types there were until recently. I'd only heard of the Polish one until this past summer...

That yellow Fett is one of the coolest things I've ever seen...

Just ordered my first 15 mexicans for a great price, decided to concentrate on the polish unarts and mexicans, so i have the best of both worlds cheers 

LOL, I said a month ago i was only going to collect the unarts lol, now im collecting mexicans too, its a slippery slope, but at least the mexicans are not too bad on the wallet.

So hi all you fellow collectors in this thread :clap: celebrate

I only have 2 Mexican bootlegs at the moment.
I don't know anything about them really (honestly, I haven't researched them yet).
But here are my two semi-articulated Leia Bespins. Smile

I think these are the same I see that come in a 3-Pack Bag with the odd weapon/accessory tree inside, but it is hard to tell and if so, there appears to be many variations of paint apps.
Also, if she did come out of that pack, mine are missing the capes. I am still actively seeking a caped version, preferably a purple caped one.

Anyway.....
cheers!
Very Happy

Nice leia's, yep ive seen both in the 3 packs, not sure if they where ever on a card or how else they came.
Ive seen both without capes and the white one with a cape, perhaps an expert could chime in here?
Man, im lovin the mexicans, your purple leia looks sweet as.

Here are the Mexican/SA Leias that I currently have w/ capes.  There is also a blue cape that I haven't found yet that comes with a yellow Leia.  The white Leia w/ clear cape is the most common found but still kind of hard to get.

At one time I bought a few of these from Rebojazz. I lost the pm where he sent me a site that he has or that he contributed to but it was a good one with some information on these. I have a few of these and they are really neat. I was going to get into these a bit more but then lili ledy caught my eye and that is where all my funds have been going lately. Once I finish up with my ledy stuff I will be back for more of the semi articulated line.
