What do you consider the best C3PO that represents ANH
and what R2D2 do think represents ANH best

I would have to say flashback c3po and commtech r2d2

i agree.

Is the flashback 3PO the one with the removable limbs?

Nope. The Flashback 3-PO only has a removable arm. The one you are refering to is the POTF2 Freeze Frame.C-3PO w/Removable Limbs & Cargo Net.

My favs:
- POTF2 C-3PO w/Removable Limbs & Cargo Net.
- POTF2 CommTech R2-D2 w/Holo Leia.

I agree on commtech R2.

My favorite 3PO, though, is the deluxe TRU exclusive that came with the coin, and has the silver leg.

I like the commtech R2, and the flashback 3po

R2-D2 with Leia and it's a tie for me between C-3PO with Cargo Net and removeable limbs and the 3PO that came with the coin.

MMC C-3PO is my favorite version of this character.

I don't have one favorite R2-D2 figure in this scale (in 12"-scale, it's R2 w/ tools), but the Ep 1 version and the CTC version are up near the top of my list (though I also like the POTJ figure, the one with tools, and now the Ep 2 version). To be honest though, while each embodies something great about one of the best SW characters, none of them really are as close to the real mccoy - yet compared to the 12"-scale one.

Compared to the 12", none of the 3 3/4" have any chance.

The fx r2 and the removable limbs C3P0 are mine.

I would have to go with the Removable Limbs 3PO as I have never saw the MMC one in any stores (they were TRU exclusives, weren't they? That's maybe why I never saw too many of those things. I got an Endor Luke on clearance from there, but that's was all they had).
And for R2, I don't know. I like the New Features one, but the eye piece is messed up, kinda warped. And I like the Ep2 one, but his head doesn't move and the noises get old after a little bit. I might say the CommTech version, but I don't own (nor have I ever seen in person) it. And the only other one I own is the Episode 1 version. I guess I'll go with the Ep1 version. I believe it has a retractable leg; it has a gimmick but can be hidden, and it's good for a neutral posing of R2.
If I ever get the CommTech version (it'll be a cold day in H....er..:evil:.), maybe I'll change my mind.

End :).

I like the POTF2 C-3PO...not sure about the R2. Never found the ComTech one or any of the later R2s, just the POTF2 one, which was okay, but not great.

Commtech R2 and Red Card POTF C3PO cause he's so shiny,

MMC (Millenium Minted Coin) C-3PO and CommTech R2-D2 are HANDS DOWN the best sculpts/versions of the characters.

They both fit for ANH too as the shiney new looking SILVER leg 3PO is seen at the END of ANH.

As for R2, what better than the infamous holo Leia?

I'll have to go with the MMC version of C-3PO.

For Artoo.. I'd say the best one I have is the Ep1 version with booster rockets. It's not great, but I feel it's better than my 1st POTF2 Artoo.
