Turkish Uzay Chewbacca: Goofy! That's the only way to describe some of these foreign bootlegs. The Turkish Uzay line, in paritcular, is famous for its incredibly tacky blister cards, each of which seems to be in competition with its counterparts for the honor of being the wackiest. This Chewbacca's blister card, for instance, depicts the figure standing among what appear to be some gords and other odd-looking edible plants, and back-dropped by a painted sky of swirling celestial bodies. Oddly enough, when it comes to bootlegs, this is high-concept stuff, the Uzay figures being highly prized by collectors precisely because their designs are so innovative.
