View Full Version : New C-3P0

Shiny looking. Fully articulated- that includes ball jointed elbows, wrists, kness, ankles. Maybe even a ball jointed waist? Most of all- A SILVER LEG!

I definetly want a new one too
one with all the stuff you mentioned and maybe some cool accessory like the ewok chair

He would be successful if articulated like the Imperial Officer. There's really no need for knee articulation, because it would lessen the rigid/uptight feel of the character.

Besides the silver shin, I'd like the wrist articulation to be removeable pegs, and one accessory to be a pair of grasping hands, so that Threepio can pilot the Landspeeder.

Other accessories could include:

* removeable restraining bolt
* "Glowing eyes" effect

And of course...

I'd like to see him come with his Ewok throne. Of course, he would need articulated knees to sit in it properly.

I dunno, that throne is awfully narrow, enough that I was hoping that Hasbro would mold Threepio into it. Then include an Ewok with enough articulation to either fight or pray. It would be like the current Massiff - you're getting two figures, but the trade-off is that one is limited.

But it could be awhile for that one, as I don't see Hasbro releasing a Han or Luke (Endor Capture) anytime soon.

I could definatly use a new shiney C-3PO. The Ewok chair would be cool but we still need something else first, MORE Ewoks!

I think it'd be pretty tough to make a vac-metalized figure with a lot of articulation. Because the shiny coating would chip and flake off so easily. A few bends, and before you knew it, the area around the joints wouldn't be shiny anymore.

A all silver C-3PO will be cool.

Wouldn't an all silver C-3PO, not be C-3PO?? :confused:
And besides, we already got one. Her name was TC-14. :)

We still have some non-gold protocol droids. U-3PO, E-3PO, and so on. Won't be silver, but they'd have their place.

No like in episode 2. Without a perple.

07-24-2002, 07:31 PM
Perple? exqueeze me, perple did you spake? :confused:

Even I can't translate that Jargo. Anyone here know what the heck Perple is? And when C-3PO was whatever that is? Anyone, Anyone, Buehller? :confused:

He could be talking about the purple marks on K-3PO.

Is there a way for Sir Steve to add a spell checking feature to the forums?

Everyone play nice! We all make typos once in a while. :)

Since I'm withholding judgment on the Deluxe C-3PO until I have it in hand, I'll say I'd love a new C-3PO, especially an AOTC 3PO without the corny looking plating.

I apologize, El Chuxter.

We do need a new Classic Trilogy C-3PO, especially with artuculation. Hopefully next year.

I could see Hasbro making a C3PO w/ ewok chair in the basic assorment, especially with all the pack ins and double figures (Massifs anyone?) they have been doing lately.
