Stormtrooper and Luke X-Wing on Stormtrooper Cardback

These are interesting bootleg items. The figures themselves look just like the standard type of articulated Polish bootleg: they're made of rubber and have AT-AT Driver limbs. But the cards they're on differ considerably from those that are most commonly associated with these figures. The more common card type is much more bland, featuring a Y-Wing illustration that's printed in about three colors (for examples, see here and here). The cards you see here, however, feature a proper Return of the Jedi logo and a photographic image of a Stormtrooper. In fact, it's the same image that was used on the blister cards of licensed Stormtrooper figures. Additionally, the figures are packed with weapons (the other type of carded Polish figure did not come with accessories).

I'm not sure when these pieces were made, but they certainly have many of the features associated with vintage Polish figures.
