Head Man (Loose)
No line of unlicensed Star Wars figures is as sought after as the Turkish Uzay figures. While the Blue Stars figure may be the most famous and well known unlicensed figure, it doesn't even begin to compare to the rarity of the mysterious Head Man. Uzay figures have become extremely popular with collectors, but only a handful of Head Man figures have turned up. This makes it nearly impossible to complete a loose or carded collection. For example, only one known carded example has surfaced despite the high demand and continuous search for this figure.

As you can see, this loose version is missing both accessories (a medieval style sword and shield,) which is too bad, because they are half the reason this figure is so unique. It may be difficult to tell from the pictures, but the figure has an all black torso and limbs, and the helmet is slightly gold in color. This figure appears similar to the Kenner Emperors Royal Guard, however, the arms and legs more closely resemble the limbs on either the AT-ST Driver or Imperial Gunner. The figure was probably designed this way due to the fact that the normal limbs on the Royal Guard appear very thin when the cape is removed.
