I found these 2 carded action figures in a toy store in my town. They look like the regular action figures but are a little bigger, the cards are printed only on the front part, the back cover is white blank. Please tellm me what are these!! Help.

These are known as bootlegs.

Here are the biggest giveaways:

1. The figures look like they are very poor quality.

2. No printing on the backs.

3. Notice the images from Return of the Jedi and Episode 1 on the same package.

Hasbro definatly did not do these, and remember, Hasbro bought the exclusive rights to produce SW toys!

If I had to guess, I'd say these look like a few Mexico bootlegs I've seen.

I've seen these in the Philippines. They're nothing but immitation Star Wars figures. They measure about 7-8 inches tall.

They are from China. So at least that's written on the card. Butthe quality isn't so low. My cousin has Plaptine and could make a comparison.

That Valorum is actually kinda cool... :D

Definitely bootlegs of course, I'd like to see'em try at a Stormtrooper :crazed:
