In case you don’t read too deeply in to our Toyguide Update for the Walgreens Exclusive 6″ Black Series C-3PO, we felt that a standalone post for this was warranted. It turns out that the Walgreens version has a distinct sculpt to its abdomen and is not a simple repaint of the Resistance Base version.
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.
