Toyguide Update: 6″ TBS C-3PO (Walgreens Exclusive)

c3po_walgreens_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates continue with our next entry in the 6″ Black Series assortment with the Walgreens Exclusive C-3PO.

PROS:  Now this is a droid you recognize! We finally have 6″ version of C-3PO to pair with our favorite astromech, R2-D2. Like the C-3PO (Resistance Base) that came before, the sculpt on this version is fantastic and painted very well, even without the vac-metal finish. What is also surprising is that (despite what you may have read elsewhere) this figure is not just a repaint of the Resistance Base version. The Walgreens C-3PO features a distinctly painted AND SCULPTED wired abdomen section. Huge kudos to Hasbro for not just phoning it in and giving us something truly unique.

CONS: For as in-demand as an Original Trilogy version of C-3PO has been (and rumored), it is surprising that this version is a retailer exclusive. Again, no accessories are included with Threepio which seems like a bit of a slight considering the possibilities.

Head to the toyguide for our detailed image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
