I think I just felt a chill come up through the floor. That must mean hell just froze over.

I don't like his neck, and how come he's solid gold?

JK ;)

Nice job! :D

The neck on the cardback picture is a little odd, but the one on the card is MUCH better. And... Threepio IS all gold in this one. He doesn't have the silver shin. :)

Did you not know this??!!!!! ;)

I am really impressed by this figure. It actually does C3PO justice here.
You are right JEDIpartnr, this is a great sculpt that has been long overdue!!

Did anyone else see the Obi-Wan picture that was with this 3PO? He looks just as good if not better than the 3PO figure. The paint apps look amazing.

Dang! This totally blows that VOTC piece of crap out of the water.

Very nice. It looks as if the head is on a ball joint. Now only if the knees bent.:rolleyes:

Yeah, would it be that hard to have knee joints?

To bad they couldn't come up with a sculpt that was half this decent when they were charging us $10!

One thing though, all I want is C-390 to have bendable knees!!! Would it hurt?!!!! Just once please?!!!!!

The Hasbro reps at last years Comic Con seem to think so. When I asked them they said the vac metal process is too expensive to add more articulation and besides that the metal would flake off at the joint.

I don't think so. If done right it would work.

They also said the only way we would see knee articulation is if they used a paint app like on the Saga deluxe 3PO with pod.

Well, forget Obi-Wan's saying "Your eyes can deceive you. Don't trust them." --Which is how I felt with the VOTC 3PO (the proto looked good, but...need I type more? :rolleyes: )
Anyways, I'm glad to see 'ol 'goldenrod' sculpted right (I think the last good one was the POTF2 freeze frame one). The eyes finally look right, with the yellow added to them. Here's hoping the final product will look as good as this :D :crazed:

Looks good, Just wish he bent at the knees.

I'm thinking that he's gonna be great because the version in the package is a production piece and not a prototype like the loose one.

So what do you expect? ;) He's either new or one of the troublemakers back to plague us with their presence.

Very nice - being a huge C-3p0 fan (he was the very first fig I bought as a child - ever), it is nice to see a pretty darn good version of him finally hitting....much better than the horrid Votc version - I wish the arms were as detailed as the R-3p0 version, though.

This is definitely the first of the ROTS figs that has me pumped...

Are you all trying to say that C-3PO is all gold in ROTS? :eek:

I was trying to stay spoiler free! ;)

This is what should have been in the VOTC line! But I'm glad we're finally getting a really great one. :)
