The Best and Worst of Bootleg Star Wars Toys

We all know Star Wars, but have you ever heard of the Stars War? That subtle spelling difference allowed companies like Turkey’s Uzay to make bootleg toys that latched onto the popularity of Star Wars. Steve Sansweet of Rancho Obi-Wan shows off a few of his favorite bootlegs here.

  1. I love that behind the legitimate toy collecting hobby is the seedy underbelly of bootleg collecting, but it is TEN TIMES more amusing.

  2. I start this video, and the first thing I see is my Star Wars lunchbox (X-Wing) right behind Norm, which I still have from when I was a kid!

  3. I love this guy.

    I love how casual he is with bootlegs that are potentially worth upwards of $5,000. Not afraid to grab them and show them off. An interesting look into a specific subculture of Star Wars Merch!
