The original C-3PO gets the hot seat this week. The fussy gold protocol droid who has 6 million forms of commutation was a must have if you had his counterpart (or vice-a-versa). Originally released in 1978 on a 12 back card C-3PO was available on all major card back types until his was replaced by C-3PO with removable limbs in 1982.
I like this figure a lot. Many of the small details are captured or come across well. The head, torso, arms and legs all look great with good details. And I'm happy with the color. Sure 3PO is all one color, gold, but he looks gold (rather than silver). I'm a little disappointed that the hands can't hold anything, but then again we never saw the droid pick up anything but a little commlink.
