C-3PO: Mystery Bootleg?

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.

C-3PO: Circulated Bootleg

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.
