In 1985, everyone’s favorite protocol droid and astromech droid starred in their very own animated TV series. Star Wars: Droids featured R2-D2 and C-3PO on their early adventures that took place before Episode IV: A New Hope. As a kid, The Blot was a huge fan of the Droids cartoon and its corresponding toy line. So you know I’m pumped to learn Gentle Giant will be releasing a “Droids” Animated Edition C-3PO 12” Jumbo Vintage Kenner Star Wars Action Figure exclusively at Star Wars Celebration VII to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Droids animated series.
Digitally scanned from mint 3 ¾” Kenner originals and reproduced to a whopping 12” tall, the “Droids” Animated C-3PO Jumbo Vintage Kenner Star Wars action figure by Gentle Giant is an exact replica of the classic Droids toy! Injection molded and made of durable plastics, this jumbo figure includes a jumbo replica of the coin that came with the original figure, features original articulation, and comes packaged on a Star Wars Droids inspired blister card (featuring original photos and artwork) with a plastic outer clam shell to help protect and display this awesome action figure.
The Star Wars Celebration 2015 Jumbo Vintage Kenner Droids Animated C-3PO 12 inch action figure will retail for $100 and can be purchased exclusively at Gentle Giant’s Star Wars Celebration VII booth in Anaheim, California April 16-19.
