Auction #237 - Session II
Offered here are two carbalon prototype pieces for Kenner's 12-Inch C-3PO. Carbalon is a casting agent (very similar to Dynacast), a two-part urethane compound that when mixed, would harden inside a silicone mold to produce a hard positive hardcopy. The carbalon hardcopy could then be painted to be used as a paint master, or remain unpainted and used for tooling as a tooling master. While Dynacast was used primarily for pieces produced in 1981 and beyond, carbalon was the former compound of choice for hardcopies. Complete C-3PO head stands 4.5" tall including casting stem, the front of which has been carved away. Front of C-3PO's face is gray carbalon while back and stem are tan in color. 4.75" tall front portion of C-3PO's torso has brownish finish while grayish color appears on flat back. This gray color appears surrounding chest ports and at one hip as sanded. VF overall. Comes with notarized Collectible Investment Brokerage (CIB) LOA. Gus Lopez Collection.
