It takes an uncompromising approach to the format, drawing out every bit of the characters’ appeal. High-end models created by TAMASHII NATIONS for a worldwide audience.
This action ﬁgure C-3P0 from the globally merchandized Star Wars was made possible via collaboration with the American ﬁgure manufacturer SIDESHOW COLLECTIBLES. The metallic image has been faithfully replicated via Bandai’s world renowned “Chogokin” know-how,and features never-before-attempted “global ﬁrst” features to realize the “World‘s ﬁrst and foremost accurate” C-3PO!
This articulated diecast ﬁgure meticulously replicates C-3PO as the character appeared in the “ 1977 STARWARS: EPISODE IV A NEW HOPE” via extensive research with goal of creating a perfectly scaled model of the prop used in the ﬁlm. This ﬁgure is a precise 1:6 scale replication of the suit worn by 175cm tall actor Anthony Daniels and reﬂects slightly larger size than ﬁgure portrayals that depict C-3PO as the officially announced 167cm!
The ﬁgure itself, which weighs in at over 900grams (about 2 pounds), includes a sense of presence and realism that was achieved under the thorough prop analysis and supervision of Japan’s foremost Star Wars scholar, Seiji Takahashi!
