View Full Version : Super Deformed C3PO Problem

06-23-2004, 03:57 PM
In going through my collection, I noticed that my Deformed C3PO (still in the package), had purple liquid on the body that has discolored it...has anyone else run into this problem. I also noticed that one of my 12" Anakin (from Episode 1) had a white mold growing on his brown robe (but nowhere else). He's never been out of his original package, stored in a box, in a climate controlled area since I got him in '99, so I'm not sure whats up with that...any clues as to what is going on? Thanks!

There were 2 different Super Deformed C-3PO's released for the POTJ line. One variation had a thin layer of sticky goo one him to simulate slime or some silly thing, the other was a "clean" variation. It sounds like you got the gooey one.

I hadn't heard of the "slimy" C3P0, but did hear that some of the C3P0's had a paint problem that kind of "melted" off the plastic.:confused:

Mine had green "goo" on it, kinda like the one R2dee2 shows, but it was liquidy and runny so I wiped it off and now he's got the green tint :confused:

Mine had the same problem. It was actually greenish to begin with. :( I wiped mine off... it was like a green oil.
