A forum user on Rebelscum posted a mystery C-3PO figure that he found in Germany, which appears to be based on the Disney pvc figure sculpt. The copyright was removed, and the figure was molded in white rubber. The figure has articulated arms, and the pegs appear to be part of the sculpt, so a mold was likely created to produce this figure. No information regarding its country of origin, year produced, or who it was created by is known at this time. If you have any details, please feel free to contact me.
This sample, found on Ebay last year - a C-3PO bootleg figure based on the Comics Spain sculpt. This copy is the more common circulated version that suffers from paint loss, but its still in good condition. Like most Polish / German C-3PO bootlegs, its made of a teal / green colored rubber, and sports gold and blue highlights. Like other bootlegs, it has no copyright markings.

In 2012, we found a Teebo key ring on Ebay, and another recently surfaced at auction coming out of Spain. I'm told that some of the original paint from the hood is on the key ring itself, which leads me to believe that these could have been produced at the Comics Spain factory.

Here is an example of a simple paint error on the Dulok figure - the fur on the top of its head is painted tan, like the highlights on its face and feet. Errors differ from variants, as they are not intentional and are the result of mistakes from an individual figure painter.

Another paint error for the Comics Spain Kneesaa figure has surfaced at auction. It sports the same error as previously discussed - the flower stem is painted brown instead of green. The deco appears to be slightly different than the error reported back in 2010 - so more than one copy is now known to exist.

A new addition to the collection - a C-3PO bootleg figure based on the Comics Spain / Disney sculpt. This copy, from a collector in Germany, was described as uncirculated due to its condition. Its been in the same collection since its release, and was never played with. Like most Polish / German C-3PO bootlegs, its made of a teal / green colored rubber, and sports gold and blue highlights. This is the first version I have seen with white pupils for eyes though. Like other bootlegs, it has no copyright markings.
