I sort of agree CHEWIE... I'd not turn it down anyway, espeically (again) with "wire" plugs for the limbs... Could be neat.The CW C-3PO was really well done, they packed a ton of articulation onto that little frame. I am sure they could scale that up a bit for a realistic version. Of course, vac-metalizing that many joints could be an issue...
But my bigger issue is 3PO is definitely "chromed" and so the dull sheen of the plastic used for the BAD figures would be a little downer. I like a chromey shiney 3PO even if they dirty him up with a dirty paintjob. I like seeing that shine underneath because that's how he is.
Now, do they have it in their power to make a more articulated 3PO? I think so. Even BAD style. I don't think they would though and he'd wind up as just a dull coated one using the current mold... I'm kind of ok with the removable panels one from the first vintage wave then... But I'd probably be happy to get a 3PO using the existing mold too. Not knowing what it's replacing and all. It's a very sharp sculpt for sure.
