At first glance, the differences between the Comics Spain and Disney C-3PO figures should be very obvious. The Comics Spain figure is true to the animated cartoon colors, while the Disney figure falls short and looks nothing like the cartoon character. You'll also notice that while the mold may look the same, the Comics Spain version is slightly larger, and much more detailed - interestingly though, the Disney figure was sculpted based on the Comics Spain mold. Each figure is marked, which clearly designates its origin, the Comics Spain figures are marked " 86 Lucas Film Ltd. Comics Spain", while the Disney version is marked "1986 LFL. Made in China". Oddly enough, the 1986 copyright for the Disney figure is inaccurate, because it wasn't released until 1990.
