Model Trem (Brazilian) Bootleg Robot Boba Fett

This rare lead figure sold for $110.00US on July 2, 2008.

Here's another one that sold for $50.00US on October 19, 2008. Here is some info the seller provided:
This is an extremely rare lead figure made by the company Model Trem in Brazil. This company made lead versions of the famous Star Wars characters until they were forced to stop by licensing laws. So, instead they invented their own space story and used their molds, equipment and spare parts to make this "SERIES 2" set of figures. This figure is figure #64 - the Robot WU-Z1. He is in fantastic condition. Please note the head of Boba Fett was the base for this figures design. To date - no Boba Fett Series 1 figures have been discovered."
