Thread: Was there C-3PO (w-Removable Limbs) on TESB45Bk ?

  1. #1

    Was there C-3PO (w-Removable Limbs) on TESB45Bk ?

    Hey C-3PO focus collectors over here,

    I have checked John Kellerman's Guide Book and seen the C-3PO (with Removable Limbs) FOTW thread but have yet to come across a specimen of this Vintage figure on the TESB 45 Back Card. I know this 2nd version of o' Golden Rod debuted on the TESB 45 Card Back together with R2-D2 (with Sensorscope) who existed on TESB 45 Card Back.

    So coming back to my question, did Kenner OMIT the release of C-3PO (with Removable Limbs) on TESB 45 Back and straight away released him on TESB 47 Backs?

    Thanks in advance guys for your answers!

    P.S. Bill Cable, I will certainly like to hear your inputs on this one.

    Not that this will shed any light on U.S. releases, but there was a Canadian 45 Back C3PO with Removable Limbs released if that helps.

    This one is a 45 back backer with transition stickers on the front and back.

    There are no known examples of an American ESB45 C-3PO w/ removable limbs, and there are A LOT of people looking for one. Right now, the concensus is that one was not produced.

    The closest thing we know of is the example from Peru, which appears to be a standard US cardback with a sticker for the foreign distributor.

    I ended up settling for an ESB45 3PO proof card. Thankfully, it's one of the easier proof cards to find.

    Firstly a Happy Birthday to you CanadianCollector!

    Thanks for sharing the info on the Canadian TESB 45 Card Back. Interesting to see the RETURN OF THE JEDI label attached over the original TESB logo on this C-3PO (with Removable Limbs) card. Is the ROTJ figure in this Offer - Admiral Ackbar or Nien Nunb?

    Would you mind posting a specimen picture of a Kenner Canada TESB 45 card back? I'm very curious to see how different it looks from the Kenner US TESB 45 Back cards.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for your timely response Bill. You're the MAN (oh yes there's Tracey Hamilton too) when it comes to O'Golden Rod !

    Looks like I have to scratch C-3PO (with Removable Limbs) from my list should I ever want to start a TESB 45 Back Production carded figures focus...

    Thanks for the URL link to the SWCA. This Peruvian specimen looked like a U.S. Kenner TESB 45 Back C-3PO (with Removable Limbs) Proof Card with the small Basa Sticker on the top left corner.

    Hope you don't mind providing a ballpark view of what the U.S. Kenner TESB 45 Back C-3PO (with Removable Limbs) Proof Card will cost?

    Thanks again,

    Somewhere between $100 & $150 for the proof card... unless you were lucky enough to get one at the C2 sale.

    C-3P0 can be found on the UK equivalent card, a 45A, but it's a super tough one to track down - There's only one sealed example I'm aware of, though probably a few more held by more private collectors.

    I remember having the 3P0 w/removable limbs as a kid! The thing that sticks out the most was the darn thing kept falling apart on me
