C-3PO and R2D2 2-Pack
« on: July 23, 2009, 12:48 PM »
Hmmm, guess we really didn't start a new thread on these guys. Mostly mixed in the Parco Show thread.





Now the Medicom update:

So it sells for around $33 US. I bet we are looking at $150 on ebay.

I don't think it will get that high ($150).  It is a standard release (No.255), meaning it is an open order item and not an exclusive.

In theory, many etailers should be able to carry it beacuse of that, possibly even BBTS who usually has good luck on the open-order items like these.

It would be nice if BBTS got them for sure.

I would probably buy this as a "open order" item.    I wouldn't want to spend more than $50 for it.   My local connection in Japan has dried up so if it was a Medicom Collectors Club item, I wouldn't be getting it.

I wonder if places like NCSX would be getting it.

Excellent, if this is available to US retailers like the Kubrick/Be@rbrick 2-packs have been, then I'll definitely pick it up.  If it was a Japan only exclusive then there's no way I would spend eBay-inflated prices to get it.

I saw the other day that the Vader/Stormtrooper Be@rbrick 2-pack was up for pre-order at BBTS, so maybe that's a sign that they will be trying to get this set too.

Have these guys only ever come out in the Early bird set or were they re-released at some point?

R2D2 was in the early bird C3PO was in series 3. There have also been droids versions of both, R2D2 was carded in this style and C3PO was part of the 2007 boxset.

Then there are these, which use the same molds, but are, of course, different droids.   ;D

Found a slightly better picture on amiami. R2 is different with only two legs, but C-3PO seems to be identical to the one from S3. Or am I missing something?

btw. Speaking of which, why the cough with the white version...  ???

I think this new C-3PO is more of a yellow gold color versus series 3's green/gold color.

That's good news on these.  I'd love to have C-3PO and R2 in my collection without paying a ton of money.  I may have to look into this pack.

Just me and Sir Real talking about the different versions of C3PO and R2D2 he had forgotten K3PO in his post. He's now added it ;)
