Star Wars Mini Figures

Well, we have seen the Star Wars bootleg toys show up in the five inch size that you can find in your local toy store. Now the figures have shown up in a much smaller form.  
The following figures are sold loose. They do not come in any kind of Star Wars packaging. 
How small are these bootleg toys? Well, Yoda stands just over one inch tall. The tallest of these figures only stands an inch and a half tall.  
With the size of these figures being so small, you can expect that the paint jobs will be extremely poor. And the paint jobs ARE extremely poor.  
The figures themselves are made up of a ceramic like material. There is absolutely no articulation on any of these figures. If you are looking for accessories, you can just forget about it. These figures do not come with any. 

Here are Qui-Gonn Jinn, Obi Wan Kenobi, Slave Leia and Jar Jar Binks. Behind Jar Jar is Anakin Skywalker.  
That's Slave Leia's arm left arm laying between Obi Wan Kenobi's legs.
Pictured here are Watto, Yoda, Coruscant Queen Amidala and Nute Gunray. 
This picture features a Tusken Raider, Obi Wan Kenobi as seen in the original Star Wars trilogy and R2D2. 

Boss Nass, a Battle Droid, another Queen Amidala and Anakin Skywalker in his pilot's outfit.  
The Battle Droid doesn't stand too well. If you look at the previous picture, you will see part of the Battle Droid in his usual position.


Here is Naboo Queen Amidala, along with Senator Palpatine, Sebulba and the Jedi Knight Ki-Adi-Mundi. 

Now as you can see in all of the above pictures, the quality of the paint job is very poor. Many of these figure's eyes are just black dots. The molds obviously are from the Hasbro five inch figures. Why the bootleggers mixed the original series characters with the Episode One characters is a mystery that probably will never be solved.  
Here is another thought. These figures are based on the actual molds (sorta) that Hasbro used to produce the "real" toys. Some of these have all ready been bootlegged on Ep 1 cards. Should we expect some of these new figures (Nute Gunray, Naboo and Coruscant Queen Amidala....) to turn up soon as five inch bootleg figures? I hope so.
