Detailed Visual Analysis

See-Threepio (C-3PO)

General Analysis

I distinctly remember getting the original See-Threepio (C-3PO) on a The Empire Strikes Back card back sometime in the early eighties for my birthday. As I missed much of the original Star Wars line in 1978, I quickly caught up with as many figures as I could beginning in 1979 and onward. I have always had an appreciation and affinity for See-Threepio (C-3PO). I don’t ever recall seeing an action figure as shiny, and the figure looked incredibly realistic (from my adolescent point of view). I usually paired him with Chewbacca in many adventures. But I had to make them all up in my mind. We weren’t a fortunate family to afford the Millennium Falcon back then. I had to make do with what I had, and I happily did. Droids didn’t become one of my favorite types of Star Wars characters until later in life. I don’t recall ever owning the Power Droid or Death Star Droid until later, well after the Original Trilogy films came and went. As an adult, I enjoy this version of See-Threepio (C-3PO) very much. I have wonderfully mint samples of him and that only makes my appreciation of him that much stronger.
