  • This C-3PO 6" figure was released individually carded in May 2017 in Kenner vintage-inspired packaging
  • The figure is a straight re-relase of the Walgreens exclusive Black Series 6" C-3PO figure from November 2016
  • If you need to differentiate both releases have a look at the feet, the left one in the picture is the Walgreens exclusive, the right one is the Black Series 40th Anniversary C-3PO
  • Here is a picture of both side-by-side: Walgreens exclusive Black Series C-3PO left - Black Series 40th Anniversary C-3PO right
  • There were no accessories included with the figure and there are no panels on the droid which can be opened
  • The two tools (?) on the outside of C-3PO's knees are movable 360 degrees
  • 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
