Watto Unpainted First Shot
The Episode I Watto action figure shown above is classified as an unpainted first shot given its lack of copyright/country of origin markings. The figure is also cast in non-production colors. Both the figure and accessory exhibit numerical markings, which likely provided them with unique identities amongst a larger test batch. It's always important to purchase modern era first shots from reputable sources due to the prevalence of figures being intentionally fabricated during off-hours in the Orient for direct sale to collectors.
