PostSubject: POTF2 Fett bootleg   The modern bootleg thread. - Page 2 I_icon_minitimeThu Oct 04, 2012 1:27 pm

Just received this today from a friend of mine. A good condition I must say.
Got couple of this version but no harm having an extra to my Fett bootleg collection Very Happy

POTF2 OC Boba Fett with Luke Dagobah pic.

For the front it comes with a unpunched peg hole and Chinese lettering on top of SW logo.
This also comes with Han Solo blaster and a jet pack both in black.
And for the back Luke Dagobah pic with a Spanish distribution/warning sticker on the bottom left.

Discovered this today while doing some clean up.

Galaxy Empire Boba Fett card variation. Gun on card to right of figure, no barcode on card.
With extra bonus, unpainted left knee pad. Guess it's a factory error pirat

If there is one line of bootlegs that I have spent as much time collecting and researching than the Mexican/SA's it's the POTF2 line of 3 3/4" figures. Unfortunately, I haven't had the luck with finding information on the companies and factories which made them other than there were multiple companies and a couple of them got raided and shut down but I have been finding many variants that were released of the same character and cards. After receiving one of these variants today in the mail I figured I'd show you an example.

The modern bootleg thread. - Page 2 Picture


The above pic is of some Obi-Wan bootleg figures on Luke Jedi cards. Same character, same "type" of card. However, there are differences in all four.

Top left: most common, common figure and basic Luke Jedi card.
Top right: exact same figure and card, however, there is an item number printed on the bottom right (no. 96112), sorry but the picture doesn't do it justice very much.
Bottom left: exact same figure, same card, however it's on a "Space Star" card and the font size of "Power of the Force" is different size, same with the wording below the pic of Luke on the left.
Bottom right: The card is the exact same as the two on top, but the Obi Wan figure is not only a different color but also a different sculpt, not to mention different light saber.

There are differences like these on almost every character, every style card. I've been logging all this information and I plan on shedding some light of these early 2013 as I'm still waiting on some information from a couple sources.

Comments are always appreciated about these strongly overlooked line of bootlegs and , of course, I'm always looking for more Wink

Nice Obi-Wan bootleg figures variant Steven...love the Space Star version. How's the back look like. Any pics for it.
Also any luck of finding that version for Fett or the rest of the other figures. Do update me if you find what I want Twisted Evil

As far as the Space Star card, this Obi Wan is the only one I've seen. If I had to guess there is no Fett since he is not found on any Luke Jedi card but you never know.

Daren-- thanks for the kudos, there are actually a lot of minor to major differences, just takes a long time to find them. The more variants I find the more confusing I get :scratch: .

Steven think you need this Obi-Wan with silver light saber for your variation.

The modern bootleg thread. - Page 2 Benlukebootlegs

You guys can check out this seller over at POTF2 forum. He got bunch of POTF2 bootlegs for sale.
The only thing that caught my eye is a bootleg POTF2 Tie Fighter Pilot on C-3PO card. Which look very neat.

Spotted this GC POTF2 version which the figure is much bigger size than a normal SW figure.
There's Boba Fett version too which I'm still hunting.
This guy got Death Star Gunner, Luke Stormtrooper disguise, Sandtrooper, Hoth Trooper bearded & Han Solo Hoth.
Among the lot the Death Star Gunner looks awesome.

You guys can check out this seller over at RS forum. Just to let you guys know the Death Star Gunner & Sandtrooper are already sold.

I follow this modern topic all the time, so figured I'd finally chime in.

I have a Vader on that Space Star card.

Sweet Vader, Jaxx! Another one for me to hunt down.

I've seen the larger figures on the green cards, I have a Yoda. There are also larger versions of some of the Episode 1 figures as well. Some other ones I'm looking for are POTF2 figures on Episode 1 cards, these are pretty hard to find, too.

I hate when people try to sell my shit behind my back!!

I was a little slow on this one cause I took this picture several years ago but this douchbag was trying to sell a set of "Star Warrior" bootlegs using a picture of my collection. Probably from my photobucket, limelight or somewhere on the internet. Fortunately, no one bid on it which is a good thing cause I couldn't tell you if he really has these figures or not. IF he does then he needs to take his own damn photo.

If I see this auction up again I'll let you guys know. This one ended on Sept. 30. If you do see it again, do NOT bid on it cause my collection is permanently locked up.

This is the pic from my photobucket, look familiar?

It sucks to see people used other people's photo for thier own usage. Luckily no one bid for it. Will definitely be on a look out and update you if I see the same picture surface on the internet again.

Thanks Crealkilla. I did write to the seller to find out whats up with using my pic but haven't heard back yet. I probably won't report anything to Ebay unless he puts up the auction again.

Just an upadate, I have been in contact with the seller of the "Star Warrior" auction and everything is taken care of. I'll take back the premature douchbag comment, lol.
