Thanks for the link Captain!

I like how it looks, that vac metal is the best finish by a long shot. I just don't know that I want to spend $50-60 to get my 4th OT threepio.

With no net, this may end up coming in a box set with Chewie at some point too.

I think the card looks great, but I too would have liked to see the figure in pieces on the card... along with the net.  Also, if this was supposed to be the ESB Bespin threepio, shouldn't it have been less shiny and have blaster scoring?  The vac-metal deco is fantastic, but it's out of place in terms of what part of the Trilogy it represents.

And to Dan's point, to go along with our fourth threepio, I'm sure we will be getting our fifth Chewbacca soon that will come with a net for goldenrod...

I'm happy about this figure.  I've wanted a shiny regular sized Threepio ever since I saw the 400%er.  But yeah, all the limbs on all my Kubs are already removable, this one's no different.   :)

So can we expect any new Star Wars kubrick info/pictures out of Wonderfest??? Does Medicom typically have a display/make announcements at this show???

So have I but having now seen it on the card I'm not that excited lol

It's still a nice addition to my carded collection though :)

Who did you guys order from and how much were they?

I ended up getting mine through Tokyo Hunter.  He charged me $70 shipped for EMS shipping.  Considering that it's a convention figure and it's the vac-metal version, I thought it was fair.  Who knows what the prices will look like in a few months though...

I went with Tokyo Hunter too. Mine was $58/£37 though because I chose SAL shipping. I got the WF carded Chewie from him too and it survived SAL so I thought I'd save a few pounds again.

I bought the Chewie from him last year but I forgot all about him and lost his info.

Just recieved my 3PO yesterday and I have to admit I'm really impressed. The vac metal finish is excellent. I'm really tempted to open this one but trying to resist.

If that happens, hopefully his bowcaster is a new mold.  Of all the excellent blaster molds, the bowcaster really looks silly.

Does anybody have a spare one of these they want to sell?  I was about to open my carded one today, but just couldn't do it.  Looking for an opener, so card condition does not matter...

Is this worth a try?

I see they go for about $90 on ebay these days, a far cry from what we paid initially and what the silver one is going for.
