A T3 web comber was a device that was silver in color and consisted of a conical body with a long tube coming out of the tip. Anakin Skywalker, a slave who lived in the city of Mos Espa on the planet Tatooine, kept a T3 web comber on the workbench in his bedroom. Skywalker used the workbench for building the protocol droid C-3PO, and the comber sat next to the droid when Skywalker showed his creation off to Queen Padmé Amidala and the astromech droid R2-D2 in 32 BBY. When Skywalker later left Tatooine to join the Jedi Order, the T3 web comber was not amongst the possessions he packed to take with him.
