Item Description
AFA graded and encapsulated blister card contains 3.75" tall action figure of Blue Stars, a all blue version of the iconic Hoth Snowtrooper, released in Turkey in 1988 by SB Products. These unlicensed Star Wars figures have attained cult status among collectors, as some feature wonderfully bizarre modifications and unique (and oftentimes humorous) card art. Blue Stars are among the rarest and most desirable bootleg/unlicensed vintage Star Wars figures. Comes with AFA "Qualified Scale" COA stating "This Item Has Been Closely Examined By A Collectible Toy Professional At Action Figure Authority, Inc., And Has Been Found To Be Authentic. Because This Is An Item With Properties Which Differ From The Properties Of Most Standard Production Items, AFA Has Assigned A Grade Under Our Qualified Grading Scale." Of note, the COA states that this piece has "Hand-Glued Blister," which has some hairline cracks as noted by blister subgrade. Card is unpunched. AFA-graded 60 Q-VG (Archival case). AFA subgrades are as follows - C80 B40 F85. Very rare as carded. Nearly every Uzay piece graded by AFA has received a Qualified grade. Comes w/notarized Collectible Investment Brokerage (CIB) LOA.
