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.

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...

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?

Leave us Aussies alone ;)

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.

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:
