This is a set of bootleg Star
Wars toys that were located in the Philippine Islands. The toy line is
called Star Fighter. This set features twelve Star Wars characters in six
different two packs. Now I gotta tell ya. It's pretty easy to tell who
some of the figures are supposed to be. While a few ya gotta take a close
look at and decide if they are the character that they vaguely resemble.
Well as you can see from the card,
there is a definite Star Wars theme going on here. The Star Fighters logo
has a Star Wars font. And that is definitely a light saber battle going
on with the silhouetted figures.
|Of the twelve figures in this
bootleg toy series, I am only posting the eight that are definitely recognizable
as Star Wars characters.
You have all ready seen Senator Palpatine and Darth Sidious. Here is Darth Vader (Black Criminal Gangster of 2050) and Watto (Law Enforcer).
|I don't think I need to id these
two characters for ya.
R2D2 is listed on the card back as a Security Guard. C3PO is a Terminator. I'm not kidding! He is really listed as a Terminator!
|These two figures show ya just
how vague the figures can be in their resemblance to an actual Star Wars
I am pretty sure that the figure on the left is based on a Gamorrean Guard ( identified as a Humanoid Rhinoceras (sic)). While the Chewbacca-like figure is identified as a Crocodile Duck. Come on, that figure just has to be Chewie. Look at the bandolier.
|What about the other figures?
Well, there is definitely a Mace Windu (Kung Fu Instructor), Ric Olie (Pilot),
and maybe a Luke (Fighter) and Leia (Princess). Both Luke and Leia are
blonde haired figures.
I really like this neat series of bootleg figures. They are certainly recognizable enough to be Star Wars bootlegs. But they are also cheesy enough to be a neat addition to my collection.
