Movie Realization Star Wars C-3PO

Tamashii Nations have released promotional images and details of their next Star Wars Movie Realization figure, C-3PO.

Like all Realization releases, Threepio has been re-imagined as though he was from Feudal Japan. While this works really well for Stormtrooper and Darth Vader, the look doesn't quite work for me for Goldenrod. The sculpt includes poseable eyes and mouth, although these do look quite comical in some of the promo images - as does the "butt" armour piece. The release will include swap out hand options and a rebel insignia fan accessory.

C-3PO is scheduled for a January 2019 release and is priced in Japan at 9,504 yen. That will equate to circa £60-£70 when the UK pre-orders go up through the UK importers.

Arrangement of Mr. Takayuki Takeya, one of Japan's leading figurators, creates one unique existence. Star Wars's popular character C-3PO appeared as "translation fun". Eyes and mouth are mobile.
