Weapon Tree (Bagged)
Here's what every kid needs to... arm his bootlegs?! This weapon bag is the first I've seen of this sort and I was quite excited to find out it existed. According to Sergio it is extremely rare even in Mexico. The more I find out about bootlegs from other countries the more I find out just how similar they really were. Mexico and Poland have exhibited some amazing similarities in not only diversity but in the styles that have surfaced. For example, Mexico has a line of hard rubber unarticulated bootlegs that bear a striking resemblance to those from Poland. This weapon bag also has a strong resemblance to a Polish weapon bag that recently surfaced. It's amazing how many similarites have turned up around the world pertaining to unlicensed product.

The following shot is a clear view of what came in the bag.

Attached to the tree are bootlegs of Lili Ledy weapons. The weapons are Logray's staff, Ree-Yees' weapon, Lando Skiff's force pike, Chief Chirpa's staff, Han Solo (in Trench Coat's)/ Luke Skywalker (Bespin fatigues') blaster, Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight Outfits') blaster, Squid Head's blaster, and Cloud Car Plot's/TIE Fighter Pilot's/Nien Numb's blaster. This is one cool find and I'm glad Sergio was kind enough to share with us.
