It’s the only POTF proof card of any sort for this figure and not even a carded mock up exists.

Wow :shock:

In keeping with your '3PO theme :wink:

Can you tell us more about this, is it one of the Spanish comic figure prototypes?

Pulsar that 3po is great what’s the story behind it ? Prototype ?


I think Laurence has just owned this thread :P

That Tri Leia is ace too Darkest 8)

As for my green protocol droid, i picked this up years ago when i used to collect anything '3PO, R2 or droid related.
Wouldn't think it was a prototype though, more bootleg perhaps?


Ive prompted Vinny to come along.
He will tell you what it is pal.

Forgot about this little one and tbh don’t know overly to much about it but apparently it is very hard to find with the blue flower as is usually found with pink and yellow I think ? Can anyone share some knowledge on this ?

Now this is a Thread I am loving.

Laurence some great items you have, I thought you sold up your Amanaman run actually. Good to see you kept some of the items.

Love the Period POTF Sign off sheets from Tom, I got a 3PO one off his first lot he sold behind closed doors.

The Spanish Comic 3po show is a bootleg I believe, There is a rare white one known, only ever seen one of them, had a few of us stumped as no one had seen it before and sold on ebay I believe. You can track down most of them in various colours and are on ebay quite frequently.

Now where to start with rare items :D

How about a Rare C-3PO Conceptual Vintage Can holder. Its a one of a kind Piece. Diet Pepsi can use and one will notice it has Cincinnati Ohio location on it, the same area where the old Kenner address was.

C-3PO's Hands have been melted at the wrists and manipulated so they fit around the holder bit of the Can.

Yes, I do have hawk eye's in those situations, Its because who posted the video really, I know there was going to be some treasures in there. He has shown a few runs before but I know he has an amazing collection people haven't seen unless they have been to his house I believe.

You managed to locate any more of the 2D you are missing?

Yeah always lots of other gems tucked away in the background of his photos :D

Not picked up any more pieces for the run in a few years now. Just the ESB 48c and POTF cromalin left to find but have kind of given up on them. Not really buying pre production these days.
