thanks for the link bro , see it before already , i was wondering if the biker scouts came in those flashy colors aswell , but with the looks and size of his collection and only two biker scouts pic both black/white
i guess they are pretty rare and dont come in flashy colors

hey joe, i was wondering is there a link or a site that focusses on these mx/sa bootlegs

iam interrested in learning more , as for now ive only read the pages , john a made

and that's mostley if not all (if i do recall correct) about polisch and hungarian

i'd like to know what biker scout bootlegs are out there

also do you believe the ones in the pic ( yak and boba ) are 90's bootlegs like your talkin about

I've been working on building a bootleg site, problem being that I know nothing about web design and have
the URL,Domain etc, but can't design a frame to save my life. SO until one of my friends with too much time
on thier hands wants to do the grunt work(or I figure it out on my own, I'm sitting here with 2000+ photos and
files full of text ready to go.

As for the Yak and Boba, NEITHER are actual bootlegs. BOTH are very recently made. What I was refering to as
90's bootlegs, are the majority of the Mex/SA figures that are on the current market. The line started in the 80s
and was still being made into the mid/late 90's The color and plastic variants are what can be used to date them.
Info that both myself and Steven have on that specific line will make a great article once I get some framework
together and can upload it all properly.

As for what's out there for vintage Biker Scout bootlegs (not meaning to hijack the thread) here are some pics from
my collection

Mexican (2Mex/SA and one from undetermined vintage line)
http://www.flickr.com/photos/coffin_joe/1487659265/in/set-72157602267424684/

Polish unarticulated (I know I have more now,this is an old pic, and I haven't uploaded the new ones yet)

loose Polish articulated (I don't have any close ups on this computer)

I'm sure if John A were on this forum he'd chime in with quite a few examples and color variants that I've missed.

Cheers
Joe

Joe
I hope you get that site up and running some time. I don't collect bootlegs yet, but they do pique my interest. I really enjoy looking at the other guys collections and I like reading about the history of them. I think this would make a great site even for those of us that don't have a collection(YET!).
Good luck with it and hopefully we'll see it sooner than later
Brad

Some are listed as pre-production and prototypes. Thats what gets alot of buyers who don't know what they are looking at. Heres one of the threads on RS I was talking about about these things.
