Definitely an interesting piece ya' found there Bob!  I suppose if it was cheap enough (cost-wise), I'd pick one up just for the bizarre novelty factor of it.  Certainly nothing like anything else in my collection!  Nice find there...   8)

There is a whole series of those...

Check it out here:

You might be able to turn a tidy profit as the website owner seems to be interested in adding to his collection.

Just don't tell him you got it for $1 ;)

Very cool pickup there Bob!  If I saw that somewhere I'd buy it in a heartbeat.  I don't own any bootlegs, but I'd love to start a collection of bootlegs though.

Well I must say going to the dollar store is interesting, so interesting that I found the complete set of these weird bootlegs!  8)

All come with Speederbike & accessories. Anakin, Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, Amidala, Darth Maul & what they label as a Battle Droid! Ha, is a very blackish silver color C-3PO.

Yes Sir, they are cheap!   ;D

I do agree that the novelty of these bootlegs makes them cool. especially if you have a full set. Nice find Dale and Bob. Would love to run into those myself.

Cool.  I doubt I'd get these for myself, but for trading...

I'd like to see them close up first though.  I think I collect enough random odds and ends that restraint would be advisable.  Unlikely, but advisable.

Sweet!

I love the bootlegs, hadn't seen that one before.

I have a handful of the POTF2 bootlegs (love the paint jobs)

Kind of a neat area of SW collecting if you ask me.  
also am piecing together an Empire Galaxy collection right now-have a ways to go on that part of the collection.
Star Wars and toy Collector since 1978(age 7).  currently over 6,500 SW items in my personal collection. Collect modern/vintage and everything in-between ;^)
