David, do you by any chance have the Vintage Land of the Jawas playset, and if so - I was wondering if they used the same Escape Pod mold as the Vintage one... I'm sure I've read before what the deal is, but don't seem to recall anymore.
If not David, does anyone else know?
I picked this set up last week, and really like it as well. Even though the Pod is essentially 3 seperate pieces, it fits together very tightly and snug. I'd obviously have preferred for it to be more to scale, but it's still nice at it's smaller size.
3PO doesn't have the "shiny" finish we're accustomed to seeing, but perhaps the lack of it is somewhat appropriate for his dusty Tatooine version... I like the hodge podge of 3PO parts they put into this to come up with a different looking C-3PO. Pretty sure I read somewhere that they mixed and matched several 3PO's figure's parts to come up with this one.
I didn't even realize you could pull him apart though. Thanks for the tip David! Very cool...
