Boba Fett (Bagged)
What we have here is the Boba Fett figure that some poor little Mexican kids had to play with. I guess the poor quality of the Lili Ledy line wasnít bad enough because a lot of enterprising individuals decided to make even crappier versions of the Star Wars line.

This Fett really is a cool piece though. It comes bagged with a header card. I really think the artwork on these Mexican header cards and cardbacks is what makes them. Check out the Ree-Yees pictured on this one. Who is he waving too? This thing is so goofy. The figure itself is shot in purple and is completely unarticulated, the bag even includes a bootleg weapon. The weapon is a small yellow plastic gun. It hasnít yet been identified but it does bear a very strong resemblance to Hanís blaster. Though I really have no idea what good a weapon is for a figure that canít even raise its arms. :^P

Hereís as best a close-up shot as I could get. The bag is really crumpled and obscures the figure a lot. Though I can tell you it is quite a good copy, well besides the color and lack of articulation that is.

It was thought at first that this might be a bagged version of another Mexican Fett featured in the bootleg section but after seeing the lack of articulation weíve concluded that itís a completely different figure.
