(Engineering Pilot) C3PO



This E.P. C3PO originally came from a former Kenner Employee. The ex-Kenner employee's job was checking EPs for quality after they came back from the orient. This figure came in a large collection of nothing but EPs. None of them were marked, however many of them differed from production in various ways. As you can see, he is missing his screw in his back. Thank you Tracey Hamilton for the extra provenance, I appreciate it : )

It's severely discoloured / degraded as you can still see some of the original blue. I've no idea why the eye paint was removed. At least it wasn't being sold as a pre-production piece. $25.00 USD  affraid I'd better list my degraded one quick! :cool laugh:

I have to admit mine, & others I've seen have been paler, but we don't know what conditions that one was exposed too (most likely long term UV exposure).

:Drool: Lee, I am super jealous. Is this the one that went on ebay not long ago? I was a bidder in that, but nowhere near the final price. For sure fett and wicket are the only characters who I would consider buying a proof of.

Dang I must have missed this one sell.  I don't often look for proofs and it was just coincidence I even saw that graded one.  That is fantastic to get one in ungraded condition and it grade an 80 off of ebay.

Just had a look and I think you got that for a bargain.  Must have gone under radar or maybe the low feedback seller, but whatever the cause you got a great deal in my opinion.  Also you were right the graded one was an afa 85.

Page 1 has been updated with the recent additions from the thread.

Feel free to post up your latest prototypes and preprod here and I'll add them to page 1.

Have been meaning to add for ages my Luke X-Wing Pilot / Jedi Knight Prototype coin.

That is a cool coin Paul. I hope one of our members comes up and shows his new r5d4 stuff as he has a great focus and I don't think much preproduction wise has surfaced for the little bot who couldn't.
