Hey everyone sorry for my lack of posting and being here been going through a lot lately. I do have a question on bootleg figure's which I only have a few of, I was wonder more about the star wars Galaxy Empire bootleg figures in particular, I tried looking up info but only get links to sale's.

One reason I was wanting info is there is a guy in Vancouver selling six carded ones for $150, to me that seems like a great deal but not knowing anything about them it's hard to tell. I also don't know if he will ship to Victoria but figured I would get info before asking.

Here are some photo's of the figure's he has with one showing the back of the card.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Great to see you post Larry cheers

I don't know anything about these figures but I looked them up on ebay and it seems they can be had for cheaper - I saw sets going for $50 to $80 .

Hey Larry, its good to hear from you mate  Smile

The Galaxy Empire figures are bootlegs of the late 90's POTF 2 figures, produced by Hasbro. It was when Hasbro made all of the figures look really muscular and broad (including princess Leia). The bootlegs are larger figures though, I believe.
The Galaxy Empire bootlegs were Produced around 1995/7.
I found this blog, that has a bit of info about them

Thank you Chris that was exactly what I was looking for, and knowing it's from the 90's it's not something I want to start collecting Smile.

And thanks to everyone else for the info on the pricing and that I could get a better deal.
