This isn't really a true action figure,only the arms move. And he is hollow. However,it looks like someone was trying to cash in on Star Wars's success. I'm guessing this item is from the late 70s,it has no markings. I bought him at a flea market for a quarter,I think.

I would so buy that Darth Maul fake! Some of those Polish boots are just sad, like Mexican bootlegs. I feel bad for Mexican and Polish kids that had to play with that junk. Argentinian kids, however, I am very jealous of!
Why the heck is Spockoda a guest? I just PM'ed him a few days ago....
He's hardly an 'Action' figure, being a solid cast in some hard rubbery plastic, but what the Hey, he's so bad he's nearly good!
My carded Bootlegs are up in the loft, so I'll post pics once I've retrieved them. (Sorry if the photo's are not up to snuff, still trying to work out the camera. It's a GOOD camera, but I bought it from a pawn shop with no software or user manual, so I'm still trying to figure it out!)

I recently got an unarticulated Polish bootleg bounty hunter- Zuckuss or 4-LOM, take your pick lol. I never know what people identify him as, but I sure love this figure! It will probably be the only bootleg I'll end up buying in my life, but he fits in with the rest of my rough looking bounty hunters. I've always had a lot of respect for the rebellion in these Polish figures, and out of all the various countries that produced bootlegs, they're my favorite, so I'm glad to host a little part of their history. Even if he's made out of rubber, his head leans to the side, and he can't stand up. Also, you can PERFECTLY read the copyright marks on the back of his legs- sorry George.

Nice. Your contributions to the site are pretty cool, plasticproblem. Regarding the Zuckuss/4-LOM naming debacle (maybe I shouldn't get started) I always felt that 4-LOM was a droid name & only one of those two looks like a droid to me
His "horns" reminded me of Peaches from Rocko's Modern Life.
I have the entire set of these ones. Apparently they all come with names. This Darth Maul one is called "Dennis" for some reason. Presumably even the bootleggers didnt even know what the real name was let alone the real likeness. Other favourites are R3P0 and TobyOne Kenobi.
I'd upload photos but dont know how to (new to the forum)
