This C-3PO figure (which sold at auction) appears to be from the Comics Spain line (no visible markings in this image though), but it looks to be made with a different type of plastic / rubber, as its very shiny. Its also possible that this figure was sprayed or dipped in an substance that would cause the same result. Its one of a few paint error C-3PO figures known.

Over the years, a few Teebo key rings have surfaced at auction, this year a few more appeared - making this collectible a bit more common to find. We also have confirmation from a Spanish seller that these were indeed produced as a novelty item. The various Ewoks were most often produced as key rings, though a Dulok sample has also been found. Teebo is the most common, followed by Latara.

This is the first unpainted C-3PO I've seen from the Comics Spain line - it sold at auction with no details about its origin. Is it an error? An unpainted prototype? Its also possible that this item was customized, by having the paint stripped. There are unfortunately no details yet to shed light on this items history. With it coming from Spain via auction, my guess is that it was simply a production piece that was never painted.

A couple more paint errors for the Comics Spain Kneesaa figure have surfaced at auction. They sport the same error as previously discussed - the flower stem is painted brown instead of green. The error has only been seen with the yellow flower - but the first sample with a purple flower and the error stem has surfaced.

Most C-3PO bootleg figures (based on the Comics Spain sculpt) are considered uncommon, but this picture, sent in by a viewer is truly rare. The dark green (hard as opposed to rubber) plastic and silver paint combination on this German bootleg is not often seen or available at auction.
