With his prissy-manner and compulsive odds-quoting, C-3PO is one of the most famous droids in the galaxy! A Cybot Galactica 3PO Human Cyborg Relations Droid, Threepio was activated 112 years before his adventures with the Alliance.

Threepio is outfitted with a TranLang Communication module which allows him to be fluent in over 6 million galactic languages. They range from common dialects to more obscure and archaic languages from forgotten systems. Fitted with personality modules, this droid experiences emotions and feelings similar to those of a human who could very well lend to the fact that he takes unusual pleasure in worrying, complaining and whining!

Both he and R2-D2, the most famous droid duo this side of the galaxy, came into galactic prominence completely by mistake.

They were owned by the Royal House of Alderaan and ordered to restrict and protect all references to Princess Leia. During an attack by the Imperials, Leia places stolen Imperial data inside R2-D2 and then ordered him to find Obi-Wan Kenobi and bring him back to Alderaan. While laser fire was erupting around them, R2-D2 jumped into an escape pod and the fussy mother hen-like Threeepio hopped in alongside. Landing on the planet of Tatooine, they were sold to the Lars homestead. Soon after, they met their new master, young Luke Skywalker. From then on, the adventures were the most exciting both droids had ever experienced.

Because Threepio has never been through a memory wipe, he has acquired much wisdom and insight, and has become an integral part of the Alliance. He is a constant presence at the side of Princess Leia acting as an essential part in negotiations and truce-makings.

Authentically styled straight from Star Wars, this special edition, fully poseable, 12" C-3PO, available for the first time ever, is destined to become a classic collectible.


What Star Wars 12 Inch Figure collection would be complete without C-3PO? The droids of the Star Wars saga serve like bookends to the stories. They are present at all of the major events of the Star Wars saga, and fans love their antics and involvement with the Rebel Alliance. C-3PO was one of the original 12 Large Size Action Figures Kenner produced in the late seventies and early eighties. Now, C-3PO has been redeveloped by Kenner/Hasbro for the modern Star Wars line under the Collector Series banner. The C-3PO Collector Series figure isn’t terrible, but we wish that they would have added a few features to make the figure a little more interesting. Something like an added accessory, like the commlink he used in A New Hope, would have made this C-3PO figure all the more interesting. Kenner/Hasbro designed a fair likeness to the on-screen protocol droid. The figure lacks articulation. It’s frustrating trying to pose the figure in any other way that generically. But you can’t do much when the articulation system is this wonky. C-3PO features a beautiful vac-metalized finish, and although he doesn’t come with any accessories, Kenner/Hasbro added enough detail in the paint job, like black paint, to accent the character’s features. C-3PO isn’t a fantastic release, but they did an admirable job with the figure. We’d like to see them add a little bit more to the next version of the character or a completely different repaint of another.
