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.

Here is a custom vintage Comics Spain Season 2 Wicket (alternate hood). I've always wondered what Season 2 figures would have looked like, so I decided to make one - I was inspired by the upcoming comic Star Wars: Ewoks - Shadows of Endor.

Back in 2010, we found an interesting Latara figure with a keyring - we couldn't confirm that it was made by Comics Spain, but another has surfaced on Ebay. This time it's Teebo with a keyring. Are these the work of clever customizers, samples from Comics Spain employees, or something that was once available at retail? The Teebo keychain figure, like Latara - is coming out of Spain, so anything is possible.
