VOTC C-3PO
« on: November 29, 2004, 11:00:37 AM »

Easily the worst of the VOTC line and not really worth the money.  No articulation to speak of, lame paint job and odd pose.  AND, he's harder to find than a picture of Anthony Daniels with a woman.  Personally I prefer the OTC "golden droid" version.

I second that.....definitely the worst, could have done so much more with it.  
Head seems too small.  Previous versions have been better.  Disappointing...

Absolutly right.This kills me cause I had him in hand but I made the choice of getting Leia cause I had missed her in the first wave.And I thought that Lando looked much better.So I passed.Now he's the only one I'm missing and I can't find him anywhere now.I mean all the others look good enough so that the price seems reasonable but 3-PO just don't do it.

Just got him & im looking for a hammer to smash it to bits.
What a worthless piece of junk!! he is about the size of any new Leia, looks like he has old woman posture. This could possibly be the very reason I just stop bothering collection Star Wars toys altogether. The Lando VOTC isnt that hot either, Scanning Trooper. I havent bought Hoth Vader or ATST Han because they are absolutlely dumb too.  How come fans are so hardcore about collecting all the toys & dont divert their energy toward tracking down Hasbro executives & beating them to a bloody pulp?
Anyone searching for 3PO VOTC, stop it seriously isnt worth it. Buy another Vader of Stormtropper if you can.

I knew it would be crappy, I am not going to get one if they are free. Enough crappy C3po's already......... I would like to have had 1 with articulated knee's atleast for the ewok throne...

I passed on this the only time I saw it one the shelf, couldn't bring myself to spend $15 on it, and judging by this thread it seemed like a good idea.

Now the problem.

It just won't seem right to have only 11 VOTC figures

I'm torn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wonder if Dear Abby can help with this problem?

(ps i have bought duplicates of the Stromie!)

I'll take it off your hands for you.  I want a loose VOTC 3P0!  PM me!

I saw one tonight, I could have finished my VOTC collection then and there. I just couldn't do it, I could not and will not buy that c3po. It looks like ass... ::)
It's terrible, I hope that everyone that has theirs is happy.
