MEXICO

Besides the licensed production through the Lili Ledy company, the bootleg production in Mexico was not in hand of larger factories. These were family businesses, small establishments, that made their own molds, their own machines to inject the plastic. Therefore there is no specific lines or producers known.

These blasters shown below were packed mainly with S/A (semi-articulated) figures in the 80s, 90s and 2000s. The colour can in some cases indicate if it is an only 80s production or if it has been produced way later. They came on sprue trees together with Vibro Axe, Rebel Blaster, Handheld Saber and Palace Blaster:

There seems to be an endless variety of colours on those. Shown below is a range of products:

  • orange: unique to the 80s
  • white: produced in 80s and 90s
  • green: only 90s
  • pink: only 90s

POLAND

This blaster was produced by Elektrospółdzielnia (EVANPLAST) for an unnamed line in Poland. The mould was used in the 80s, 90s and 2000s (1985-2003). These were packed in baggies probably stapled onto cardbacks and sold as accessory sets. They are nowadays mostly paired with the figures that came from the same factory in the so called “Polish 1st, 2nd and 3rd Gen” lines. All those weapons came in a huge variety of colours over the years. Here is two examples:

  • black
  • blue
