Cartoon C3PO R2D2 variations help

Postby Pulsar » Thu Jul 05, 2018 10:26 pm

Hi guys

I used to collect anything droid related back in the day including paint variations so trivial i needed locking up.
I was having a look at these a while back and was wondering if someone more knowledgeable than myself could shed a light on some of these please?
Only one R2 (the smallest) has markings (LFL made in China) while the others are not stamped.

Some of the bronze 3PO's are stamped and some are not. Some great variations though 8)
I understand the yellow Threepios are the Star Tours issues?
Haven't a clue about the green one, no markings.

Any help appreciated.

Regards
Paul

I have a vague recollection of two 'runs' of Spanish ones as well ( yep '86 and early 90s were marked CE )
