Target Black Series 6" C-3PO with Babu Frik
« on: November 1, 2019, 12:14 PM »
Does anyone know where this figure is an exclusive? I guess his eyes turn red if put in fridge and the back of head comes off.

I picked this up today and itís awesome! Be wary though, only about 1 out of 3 I examined had Babuís belt buckle painted on properly. (Most were missing the silver) YMMV.

Anyone know if this is the "new" 3PO that uses the 4-LOM sculpt, or is it a repack of the Walgreens/40th/TFA 3PO? Trying to decide if I need to drop $20 on the Babu Frick, but if it's the new sculpt it's an easy buy.

You can listen to Hasbro talk about this figure at NYCC here

It uses the 0-0-0 sculpt (which had the 4-LOM arms with new longer/taller legs than 4-LOM) with a brand new head sculpt (to accomodate the eye color change feature).

I picked this figure up earlier this week after coming across several at a local Target.  Itís an interesting variation on C3PO for sure, given that heís armed and all.

Awesome, thanks for the info Siddy and Jeff. I somehow missed the parts about the back of the head coming off and the eyes changing color. Looks like I'll shell out for this one, hopefully on sale.
