New COO discovery??

Have I discovered a new COO variation here?.. I picked up this C-3PO ( fixed limbs ) the other day and noticed how dark and rich the gold looked on it, so checked out the COO against all the known ones on a website ( picture attached ). If you look at the COO on my one in the single image it doesn't match one on this guide, it looks like an almost exact match to #7 accept the word 'Hong' on mine is closer to the word Kong.

Iv'e emailed the website and am still waiting for them to get back to me with a request for the photo of mine, so just thought i'd see if any COO experts on here can confirm my finding or not.

Thanks!

Maybe you have found a coo that is not any guide. There is a few guides and I guess not any of them is complete. I also sometimes find a coo that I cannot find in any guides :wink:

Not a coo variant that I have in my collection.

Thanks for the input, I did think maybe this guide isn't fully updated?

But would be exciting if I have a rare never before seen COO 8)

No guide is fully updated :(

I am sure it is more rare than most of the c-3po coo that is in the guides since it is not there. But I am also sure about that it is not so rare so it is more rare than the Takara :wink:

Nope it's still not on that guide either :shock:

And it's also not one of these 13 variants on this guide...
