I have not seen either one but the 1st one sucks compared to the modified one, which b/c of it and variation hunters it will be a bitch to find.

The thing is about 3POs is I never found the AOTC version, who was supposed to be a warmer, but people seem to be having a hard time finding this. :P

I am beginning to think this wave is not going to show up at Target....

I've seen the latest "Re-pack of the Sith" waves but still no Endor..

Target is getting the wave, they're just getting it more slowly than WM at the moment.

Agree with Anton....relax..it will come. As I recall, Target got the last 3-4 waves before WM did..just to put a stake in that 'Target never gets anything' theory ;). Way I remember last year with ROTS it went back in forth but the later part of the year WM got the waves 2-3 weeks before Targets it seemed.

The only thing that matters is about WHEN the product hits and at what store. The fact remains that it will hit eventually..now,whether your at your store at that time or not...

A friend said he just found cases upon cases of these out in the Eastern half ot he state at WM, so maybe they're surfacing here too.  Time to hit the store I guess.

I finally found the corrected C-3PO the other day. There are only 2 versions, right? Do any of them actually have the same vac metal on the knees as on the figure? That's what I was expecting, but the 2nd version I found looks more like the knee joints are made of a plastic that's colored more metallic-looking as opposed to having vac metal on it. And the right knee is silver whereas the 1st one was not.

The knees are pliable PVC so they can't be vac-metalized...  I'm guessing this is just so they dont' go all loose on us over time as that's the usual reason for that type of plastic...  It's the only version I've seen so far, but looks pretty sharp actually...  I'm just wondering if 3PO's right foot is silver or gold in the films...  The toy's foot is silver like the shin but I thought just the shin was silver in the movie, while the foot was his "original" foot and still gold...

Oh well.

Judging by the pic on the cover of "The Story of Star Wars" LP, it's silver like the shin. But then, I never noticed any silver at all, and only heard about it in recent years.

It is official, I saw this wave at Target today.  Not DSG's...and it was the "corrected" C3PO.  FYI

Alright, it's official, Target is behind on this wave. Aside for the scan reports, this wave hasn't really hit Target and now the next wave is out at WM. I wonder what's going on.
