1/12 C-3PO English Manual & Color Guide

1/12 C-3PO Construction Manual & Color Guide

Released by Bandai for the Starwars line was C-3PO as a 1/12 Model Kit. In the series C-3PO functioned as a protocol droid and universal translator.

It was only when I had the chance to come in contact with the land of politics that I learned that there was such a thing as a protocol officer. In case you are wondering, there's a great explanation about it here. You might say that they look like glorified party planners, but they ensure that no faux pas can happen between a visiting dignitary and the host country during official functions that could lead to one party being insulted by the unwitting actions of the party not familiar with the other's customs.

In case your wondering, Bandai also released a 1/12 version of C-3PO's hearty sidekick, R2-D2. Let me address the elephant in the room by saying that I also think that Bandai split these two up so that fans will have to end up buying both separately and in the process make them more money. *snicker*

The 1/12 C-3PO by Bandai is selling for $$ at Amazon.
