Guerra De Las Galaxias
The War Of The Stars. That's roughly
what the above translates to. What does this have to do with this particular
toy? Well, I finally found a Mexican Star Wars bootleg toy. It's about
time if ya ask me.
Here. Take a look.
Okay. Lessee, ya got the Star
Wars logo on this poor, cheap cardboard backer card. The card artwork
features characters from the original Star Wars trilogy. But as ya can
see, the figures aren't based on the original Star Wars trilogy. NosireeBob!
That's Darth Maul and a Battle Droid under the bubble. Heh. The bubble
isn't even glued to the card. The bootleggers actually stapled the bubble
to the card.
The Battle Droid stands just
a shade under four inches tall. It's actually about half as thick as
the "real" Battle Droid figure. As far as Darth Maul goes, well, let
just let the picture speak for itself. Wait. What's the pic saying????
How about "Bwah! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!"
Old DM stands about 2.3/4 inches
tall. No light saber for this figure. Yes, that's actually plastic under
DM's left arm. The bootleggers didn't take the time to clean the figure
up before packaging it. Oh. One final thing. Neither of these figures
sports any articulation.
To tell ya the truth, I've been
keeping an eye out for any bootleg Star Wars figures every time I go
to Mexico. Well, I finally found a street vendor who had one. And one
was all he had. So I scooped it up and headed on back to the states
with it. Okay, Okay. Me and my buddies also made a side stop for a few
shots of Tequila before heading back to the states.
