Different Takes on Threepio

c-3po_droidJust playing around with the most famous goldenrod of all; a vintage C-3PO from Kenner Toys, circa 1978. While today’s collectors demand minute details and multiple points of articulation, this charming fellow actually has a lot more detail than you would think at first glance. Add to that, his golden glow that you won’t find in today’s action figures, which is truly a shame. To note, when shooting these little snippets I got a tiny taste of the nightmare it had to have been for Lucas and the crew to actually shoot the real Threepio on set. It would take a lot of effort to “stay out of the shot”. Such a fantastic toy and memories in this one.

Now, Go Play!
