Cool, thanks for the link!  I guess it would only make sense that the weapon would be bootlegged too.

The company that made 2nd and 3rd Gens also made GI Joe bootlegs and many of the 3rd Gens have bootleg Joe weapons. There's also some very rare hybrids of Joe's with SW limbs which are thought to have been made at the tail end of the line just to get rid of parts laying around. Shane has been working on an article about Polish Joe's for a while now and when he's done I'll be updating mine and we'll be cross-linking.

Is it a solid mold?

That would be a yes. I also have an unarticulated Barada & Tusken in this thread.

The unarticulated, meaning that they were molded in one immovable hunk of hard rubber
