Bootleg metal Yak Face

Postby Iglomat » Tue Aug 23, 2011 8:49 am

I found a bootleg metal Yakface in a charity shop the other day, does anyone have any info on these? It's stamped with a a number 5 on the back and the only one I can find online is Ron Salvatores's which is number 3.

Can read more here - http://theswca.com/index.php?action=dis ... m_id=48031

I have never seen any for sale, I think they were definitely custom made from a production figure, limited run of god knows how many! Cool find though :)

Here's a couple of pics witha close up of the number stamp. The small copper pipes in the feet that must have held it in the mould are still attached.

Are they the same thing? I've seen the one on the Archive but didn't realise it was supposed to be on a plinth.

For some reason I can't see the pics in this thread, they just show up as P1020683.JPG

Just like Buses, wait and age for one and two show up at the same time.

I didn't even notice :lol: someone sent me a link this morning and I didn't even check the date. That's why the pics don't show up!
