I sit and gripe about the lack of good, clean Threepio sculpts pretty much everyday (no, not really). I just got the Millennium Minted Coin C-3P0 and think this was the best "Clean" Threepio to date. There are still a few things I would like to see improved, but this is the best so far. I love the colouring compared to the original POTF2 sculpt... not to mention the overall pose, build (no longer a "Gold's" gym 'droid ;) ) and his silver shin! Nice touch! I think the best have been this version, the Purchase of the Droids version and then the removable limbs version...

Still... I'd love to see a new REALSCAN sculpt of him and Artoo!
:D

...for those wondering why it took so long for me to get this dude, the TRUs only had the Emperor, Luke and Snowtrooper 'round these parts!!:mad:

Round these parts? Bunch O' danged Emperors.

I must agree with you though. I'd really like to see a new Threepio sometime in the future though...

I agree, the Millennium C-3PO is the best so far. But an updated one should be done too.

Of all my Threepios, I like the vintage ones the best. The removable limbs one looks a lot better than the POTF2 version and the net is sturdier. I think it would be good to have one with clickable limbs than won't move unless you move them. The problem with these figures is that the limbs go loose easily.

I gotta agree, the Millenium Minted Coin C-3PO is the best figure of him to date. I picked up like 4 of these sets a few months ago for cheap custom fodder. Again, why is it always the very last things in a cancelled line that are the best.

Cinema Scenes:
Mynock Hunt, Jabba's Skiff Guards, Rebel Pilots

Millenium Minted Coin:
C-3PO, Emporer Palpatine

Expanded Universe:
Darktrooper, Spacetrooper

POTF2:
R2-D2 w/Holo Leia, Admiral Motti

E1:
Jar Jar: Naboo Swamp, Pit Droids, Sio Bibble, TC-14, R2-B1

Hopefully the end of the POTJ line won't leave us all searching high and low for Bo Shek, Teboo, and R4-M9's. Since that appears to be the last wave that will appear in the POTJ line.

MTFBWY and HH!!
