Okay, here is an odd Star Wars
EP1 bootleg toy. I only have one of these figures in this series. But it
appears to me that there may be at least six different figures. Take a
Okay, it looks like a typical
EP1 card right? But on the top right corner is an item and a packing number.
The item & packing numbers are actually hand written in. Just looking
at the pic, you can all ready see that something is wrong with the bubble.
Below, is the toy. What's this?
Qui-Gonn is riding a Sith Speeder? No way Jose! Well, the picture doesn't
Below is a close up of Qui-Gonn.
This pic really doesn't do the figure justice. The paint job on this guy
is actually pretty bad. The figure would stand about five inches tall more
or less. The speeder is about four inches high and five and a half inches
This thing is located in the bottom
right corner of the bubble. What is it? It's the bottom half of Qui-Gonn's
jedi vest. I've looked this thing over and over and I just cannot figure
out how to attach this to Qui-Gonn.
Now get a load of the card back.
It is completely original. The bootleggers changed the logo around a little
bit. The star burst is now a nice yellow color instead of the red we are
Get a load of all the other figures
that I think were produced in this bootleg series. All the figures are
shown riding a different colored speeder. Now I doubt if the speeders were
actually produced in this color. After all, the Qui-Gonn figure I have
is riding a brown Sith Speeder. The Qui-Gonn pictured on the card back
is shown atop a yellow Sith Speeder.
What characters may have been
produced? Obi-Wan, Qui-Gonn, Anakin, Queen Amidala, Darth Maul and C3PO.
For some reason, the bootleggers have labeled C3PO as a Battle Droid.
Quite frankly, I wouldn't be
surprised if all of the wave one figures pictured on the bottom of the
card were produced in this bootleg toy series.
And if anybody has these, I would
love to trade for them. You can email me by clicking HERE.
Here are a couple more Sith Speeder
bootleg toys. These were sent to me by one VERY COOL toy collector named
Alan Munguia. Alan just gave them to me! Didn't ask for anything in return.
He just gave them to me! And Wait'll you see the other toys he hooked me
FYI, this particular bootleg
toy line is showing up in the Phillippine Islands. I wouldn't be surprised
if they are also showing up in Brazil and other South American countries.
I don't think I need to ID them
for ya. But the figure on the left is Anakin Skywalker. On the right is
C3PO. The only difference between these two toys and the Qui-Gonn pictured
above is the Star Wars sticker that is on the back of the speeder.
