Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Mission Series R2-D2 and C-3PO.

I actually like the Threepio for what he is and this is the very first 3.75" Threepio action figure that's ever replicated the three little dots of light in each of his photoreceptor eyes. Pretty cool. Even the premium-quality, collector-focused and shiny vac-metallized versions never include this detail.

The Artoo is alright, but they left off some of the important paint details on his trunk and that's glaring (just a few extra, tiny silver paint apps wouldn't have forced them to jack up the price). Still getting two figures for $9.99 isn't a bad value in this day and age when even the cheapest premium-quality R2-D2 figure runs ten bucks. For cheap, good display fodder or some simple kid's playthings they're more than adequate.
