This concept C-3PO figure was released individually carded, but packed-in together with a concept R2-D2, as part of The Anniversary Collection in 2007. The set was a Celebration IV convention exclusive in the United States. C-3PO is based on concept art created by Ralph McQuarrie for the original Star Wars movie.

C-3PO has a total of 12 joints, lacking articulated knees. Because of that, it might take some time to get the figure to stand on its own without using a stand. There were no accessories packed-in with the figure, and there are no removable parts or other kind of gimmicks on the droid.

The paint application on the McQuarrie C-3PO is well done with a dirty and rusty look to it, but it still feels a little plain and boring. However, Hasbro did captured the aesthetics and the overall look and feel from the McQuarrie paintings very well, and if you are a fan of Ralph McQuarrie (and who isn't?), you won't regret adding this version of C-3PO to your collection.


Ralph McQuarrie was commissioned by George Lucas to create several paintings. This scene depicts R2-D2 and C-3PO in a desert landscape. Even in this early rendering, Threepio already has a somewhat startled look, and Artoo reveals traces of his spunky nature.


Take your figure and find the date stamp on it (look on the back of the thighs, bottom of the feet etc...)
If you can't find a year printed on the figure check if it has a 5 digit number printed on it, enter it below and we'll pull up all the figures in the database which has the same number.
