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
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.

The following is the description of the item when it was for sale a few years back.
A binder containing the production budget from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Housed in a blue plastic three-ring binder, this binder consists of 140 mimeographed typescript pages of accounting information from the production. Each typed page outlines the production expenses across a grid with columns for account number (recipient), their rates, the amounts per location (Elstree Studios, ILM, etc.) and the total amounts at the far right. At the back of the binder is a single page memo outlining the computer key codes attributed to the film production accounts. The pages show minor wear due to production use and age; however the item remains in fine condition. Dimensions: 25 cm x 30 cm x 4 cm (10” x 11 ¾” x 1 ½”)

My favourite page being the wardrobe budget. IRG's instead of ERG's, Scooter Troopers, Pig Guard and only 3 of them.

Vintage 12 inch C-3PO Rusted non vac hand painted and sprayed first shot Prototype. The paint job on this is really outstanding, it can only truly be appreciated in person.
Second one is a first shot prototype. The designer who made this was tasked to see if it was possible to articulate the limbs just the The vintage Action man figures. It has been cut at the wrists and elbows and both hands are missing. There’s some tape on the arms also helping to hold them together. It’s in a custom display case but you can take the Arms off as you can see in the pictures.
I also have a first shot that was never fully assembled and painted like the final released version. This came direct from one the head designers who was involved in the Toys right from the start.
