Polish/German C-3POs (Droids/Star Tours)
What we have here is a bootleg of the unarticulated Droids/Star Tours C-3PO figure. This particular one came to me from a collector in Poland. This is only the second one I've ever seen.

The second image is of another bootleg based on the same sculpt. This figure hails from Germany though. This was the first one that surfaced and is slightly different than the one that surfaced later. This is much more of a flexible rubber whereas the other feels like a hard plastic. Both lack any copyright information.

Finally, here is a shot of all of the European Star Tours/Droids variations of this figure side by side with the bootlegs. Thanks to Bill Cable for supplying the comparison shot.
