The popular Star Wars MEISHO MOVIE REALIZATION Series, after releasing Cold District Ashizu Snowtrooper in April, finally announce the long-awaited new product. The first non-rebel/empire character is the series, "HONYAKU KARAKURI C-3PO."
C-3PO is a humanoid robot from the Star Wars franchise. C-3PO was made with scrap pieces in 32BBY by the 9-year-old Anakin Skywalker, who later became Darth Vader. C-3PO then followed both Anakin and Luke Skywalker on their legendary journey, went through many grand adventures throughout the galaxy and witnessing historical moments.
C-3PO is an etiquette robot, but unlike others of his kind he went through many modifications and upgrade, thus fluent in million forms communication and different cultures throughout the galaxy; Despite having its own independent and human-like consciousness, C-3PO will obey its master's command no matter what. Other than that, he has a fussy and worry-prone personality and constantly says things like "We're Doomed!", "Oh my goodness", and the recurring line "I have a bad feeling about this", that's super annoying sometimes. He and R2-D2 form a strong contrast.
For this piece, in order to fit "MEISHO MOVIE REALIZATION" Sengoku period setting, C-3PO is changed from a robot to a Karakuri puppet and infuse with many traditional elements in its design including Sakayaki, Padlock key, Calabash, and rebel emblemed fan. Takayuki Takeya has done it again with his amazing design, it's a must-have if you're a fan of the series!
