Please help me cause havenīt found any clue about this little C-3PO - what is it?.
It heights 2 inches and has moving arm and turning upper body.
Lucasfilm has been printed in his left calf.

Urr...that almost appears to be a micro-machines C-3PO really...you say it's 2 inches? Hm. The only other thin I can thing of is a line, whose name escapes my mind right now. They had several characters all on little bases like that one.
Though I still think it's actually a MM C-3PO...

What's he made of? That might help a bit. There's no date on him? He might be Japanese,maybe?

Thats what I was thinking mabudon.
Possibly it is from a board game?I don't really know though,
for some reason the C-3P0 looks familar to me.

...made of plastic.. I think... at least not metallic.
No date - just ĐLucasfilm
Not so yellowish than photo shows
...and yes Iīm from Finland - sorry my lousy English ;)

Could it be from Kenner's Action Masters line that came out in 1993 or 1994? They made several small (around 1.5-2") die-cast metal figures. I know I saw a Stormtrooper, Vader and Fett (released along with Terminator, Aliens, etc.) around that time.

It could be some kind of "cake-topper".

Is it A PVC figure made by Applause? That's what it looks like to me.

I don't know much about it. I can tell you that it is neither of the Action Masters C-3POs as previously suggested. The arms are posed differently than your C-3PO's pic, plus the Action Master C-3POs have no articulation.

Could this be one more of Hasbro's latest oferings? An exciting new direction toward crapness?
"...Now with a new level of innaccuracy and lack of detail!"
I don't know what it is I just saw an opportunity to carp. :D

It's either a PVC figure, or a scaled up mold from an MM figure (a bootleg). To me, it actually looks like a vintage die-cast 3PO MM figure. I think it could be from the Action Masters line, those were about 2" tall but I think it had a different base, not sure though. It's base looks like a base that Galoob would put on a figure...

It's from a board game where C-3PO and R2-D2 have to escape from some...thing. The R2 was an electronic thingie in the middle of the board and their were little cards and stuff. It was released in Europe a while back but never made it to the states...ahh who am I kiddin'? I have no idea...

this applause is very close...
...but donīt match... that board game sounds believable

Rollo Tomasi: I think this is what you suggested:
ESCAPE FROM THE DEATH STAR GAME
The Exciting New STAR WARS Game
A new game of strategy featuring the Stars of STAR WARS:
LUKE SKYWALKER, PRINCESS LEIA, HAN SOLO and CHEWBACCA.
Game includes 17 3/4" x 17 3/4" Death Star playing board,
"Force" cards, four sets of playing pieces and R2-D2 spinner.
Two to four players.
...but ...C-3PO didnīt come with it

Here is a suggestion. It could be the Mail Away Action Master's C-3PO. They did have some sort of mail away thing going on. I never did send for it. Possible?

I dont think its a C-3po cake Topper cause I have the C-3po cake topper and he is on a round base. Id say its the C-3po that was meant to go with R2 from the Hasbro Line (I think as people said "Action Masters" line) and came with a card or sticker :)

Its not the Action Masters C-3POs. I compared the pics and they are posed differently than his and they have none of the articulation as he had mentioned. See for yourself.
Normal Action Masters C-3PO:
Gold Mail-away Action Masters C-3PO:

They're obviously identical Lord Malakite, why can't you just admit it?;) :D
Actually now that I see him, I own the Action Masters Threepio, I just never knew it.:stupid:
