More Information

  • Articulation Count: 15
  • Articulation Details: 1 Ball-jointed neck, 1 lower swivel neck (up and down movement), 2 ball-jointed shoulders, 2 ball-jointed wrists, 1 ball-jointed upper body, 2 ball-jointed hips, 2 swivel thighs (well hidden!), 2 swivel knees, 2 ball-jointed ankles;
  • Accessory Count: 0
  • Accessory Details: None
  • C-3PO was released individually boxed in November 2016 as a Walgreens exclusive
  • There were no accessories included with the figure and there are no panels on the droid which can be opened
  • The two side cannons on the outside of C-3PO's knees are movable 360 degrees
  • C-3PO seems to have about the correct height
  • Unfortunately Hasbro decided to give C-3PO a dull golden paint application instead of a shiny, vac-metallized one (a detail which Hasbro has done right in the 3 3/4 inch line many times since 1995)
  • The paint app does reflect the light, but not to the degree to make this figure work the way it should
  • C-3PO also appeared quite dirty in most of the original trilogy, a detail not reflected on the figure
  • 3PO was sculpted nicely and the figure captures the likeness of our favorite Protocol Droid very well, but the lack of accessories (commlink? restraining bolt?) and a mediocre paint application make this a lackluster release
