MORE INFORMATION

  • This Black Series C-3PO figure was released single carded in late May, early June 2022 in the United States
  • The figure is a re-pack of the Black Series C-3PO figure from 2016
  • 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 (he's a little shorter than a regular figure)
  • Unfortunately Hasbro decided to give C-3PO a dull golden paint application instead of a shiny, vac-metallized one
  • The paint application reflects the light, but not to the degree it should to make 3PO the shiny figure it should be
  • 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
  • It should also be noted that Hasbro has a better Black Series C-3PO with more arm articulation (biceps and elbows) and accurate eyes which could have been re-released
