NEW: Polish Bootleg Figure Discussion Thread...

Postby Dublinjeff » Thu Apr 14, 2016 7:19 pm

Just thought that as some people had expressed an interest in these, I might start a thread dedicated to discussing all things Polish...Feel free to add photos and references to this thread. Would be cool to see what members have!

I for one have been bitten by the bug and intend on adding a few more RC variants to my collection.

Here's the 2 figures I picked up recently...both are series 6, unarticulated figures. They both have Standard No COO figure characteristics.

Here's a link to the Rebel commando reference guide where I've documented them in detail

Great article here outlines the background to these..

Here's the Luke Farmboy Figure I had when I compiled the LFB focus. As the article linked discusses, it would appear that these Series 6 figures were made from illegally obtained casts, giving reason for the COO stamping markings found on the figures...this particular figure has Raised Bar China COO markings.

I've not heard the term Series 6 before. What are the series of Polish figures?

Hi Pat

If you click on the link to the article above it has a good bit of information on these. I was just referencing it....I'm no expert at all, just saw the series on there.
Hope this helps
:D
