A bootleg of a Droids 3PO, just love the green hue of this Goldenrod.
Always reminds me of Talos from Jason and the Argonauts :mrgreen:

Here's my C-3PO I picked up years ago. I do really like the 2 droids from this series so picked up both of them and also have a loss droids R2 but no loose C-3PO. It's amazing how much the loose C-3PO goes for now, it's almost the same as a moc last time I looked.

Excellent stuff, Ian! Although I don't collect the Droids line myself, I still enjoy seeing other people's collections, and this C-3PO is a beauty!

Thanks for sharing :-)

Thanks for showing your C3PO’s, I am shocked how much these go for now loose and carded!
I remember when they were looked down upon and no one wanted them, wish I had bought every one that was going!
The droids are great from this series of figures, such a shame that the bubbles go so yellow on all these, and I like the different US and Canadian card backs.

Nice Canadian card back and figure Lars, as mentioned earlier these were pretty cheap to pick up for years on both cards but now seem to cost a lot more (like everything vintage). I also have a Kenner Droids R2 and used to have an 85 one but the bellow was more yellow so I kept hold of the ungraded one and sold the graded. I'm pretty sure the R2 I have would grade 85 and it's nice to have the bubbles matching up somewhat. Also as mentioned the bubbles on these do tend to yellow which is a shame. I must admit that I've never really been into yellow bubbles but beggars can't be choosers I guess.
