Uzay is the name of the most popular line of vintage bootleg toys. Produced and sold in Turkey during the mid-to-late 1980s, the line consisted of several mini-rig vehicles and some 14 action figures. The most famous of the figures is definitely Blue Stars, a bright blue Hoth Stormtrooper. The rarest, however, is probably Head Man, a variation on the Emperor's Royal Guard figure. Renowned for their ultra-cheesy packaging art, the figures are quite sought-after, and their values have continually escalated over the last 10 years. As is the case with most bootleg toys, all of the Uzay products were made from molds created using actual Kenner toys as their masters.
