See-Threepio C-3PO (Droids 1985)

The Droids version of C-3PO does not come with any accessories (only the break-apart C-3PO did – a bag!), and is molded in yellow and brown instead of the golden color the original line figure had. He also has a blue neck and midriff, all in keeping with the colors of the cartoon version. His eyes are also now white with blue irises, a little creepy considering he is a robot.

Why should you get this figure? Five reasons:

1. Darn it, you just love yellow!

2. Again, only twelve figures in the line, you can get them all.

3. Again, another chance to get a knock-off looking C-3PO, without actually getting a knock-off.

4. Your last chance for a decade to get a Star Wars character from the movies.

5. Your mom thought you’d like it. “Ah, Mom!”


Everyone now knows that R2 and C-3PO were taken by Bail Organa at the end of Revenge of the Sith, and the Droids series takes place between that time and A New Hope. Supposedly the droids get accidentally jettisoned during a ship drill, and go through a series of masters before ending back up with Bail.
