Christmas Haul 2016: C-3PO from Star Wars: The Black Series Phase III by Hasbro
Height: 5 5/8ths
Articulation: Swivel/hinge ankles, hinged knees, swivel thighs, balljointed hips, balljointed mid-torso, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel shoulder covers, swivel/hinge wrists, hinged neck, and a balljointed head.
Non-Scalper Price: $20 dollars
* Here's a side by side picture of the two C-3PO figures. Since they're so similar, my thoughts on the first Resistance Base version (Left) apply to the classic version. Here's a link to the Resistance Base version for your reading pleasure!
* Besides this version of C-3PO obviously having two gold arms, the second difference is that the wires on the midsection are completely different. This C-3PO actually has fewer wires than the Resistance Base version from The Force Awakens. Not really sure why this is (or how accurate it is; looking at a few pictures really didn't help) but it's still nice that there's something physically different between the two figures.
* The third difference between the two figures is that this C-3PO has the silver lower right leg and foot that many people seem to not remember. This definitely marks this C-3PO as an Original Trilogy version and not a Revenge of the Sith version. Hey, there's another repaint down the line!
For everyone's favorite protocol droid, I've also reviewed the Black Series Resistance Base version, my daughter's Hero Mashers C-3PO, and Galoob's Classic Characters (2nd Edition) set which he was included in.
