I've previously mentioned the genuine variant of Paploo that was painted at another workshop, which featured pink hands, feet, etc. All of those samples included necklaces painted solid grey, instead of giving them the correct black band. We now have a couple samples of the variant Paploo with a brownish burgundy necklace as well. A slight change, but they're always added to the archive!

Last year, a few samples of a Dulok paint variation made it to market, all with the same features. The paint for the eyebrows and nose are light brown and match the club in his hand. The nails on his feet and hands are also painted grey. These deco changes from another workshop, apparently produced the figure in a more vibrant shade of green pvc.

We've seen a C-3PO paint error figure from the Comics Spain line before, including the unpainted pelvic region, and a blue mouth - but never in this hilarious shape. This figure is actually frowning, as if in shock at what he's looking at. One eye is also significantly larger, making the figure all the more uniquely special. Being hand painted really allowed a few comical errors to slip onto the market!

I've yet to discuss any paint variants / errors for Paploo - but we now have images from several sources of a genuine variant that was painted at another workshop. The standard figure has tan / beige features, including the eyes, mouth, hands and feet - the variant has those same features painted in pink. Its interesting to note, that this other workshop also painted the necklaces solid grey, instead of giving them the correct black band.

Originally thought to possibly be one of a kind, another Dulok keychain has surfaced at auction in Spain. The size of the figure would seem to preclude a sensible use for a keychain, yet here it is. Based on the excellent condition, it was likely never used as such. Interestingly, this version is molded in the brighter green rubber, compared to the original sample found in 2015.

The Comics Spain Latara will often have slight paint variations when it comes to the ears or feather, but you wont often find a figure with the stomach painted grey. This is the second sample we've seen, and its an error to boot. The necklace has also been painted over with grey paint.

The arguably most popular Ewok, Wicket, has yet to have a key ring from the Comics Spain line surface - until now. An auction out of Japan is the first sample of the Wicket key ring I have seen to date. The asking price - over $1,000 USD. Comics Spain figures, as well as their key ring incarnations have never achieved such a sum that I am aware of. Considering Wicket is the main character of the series, this is surely not a one of a kind piece.
