    Review: Chogokin C-3PO

    I had the great fortune of being able to check out the upcoming Tamashii Nations Perfect Model Chogokin C-3PO at Toy Fair. I wanted to share my review:

    Thanks for the review, BillCable. I was on the fence for a long time with this figure, but once I saw how well it scales with SSC and HT (in addition to the incredible quality, of course), I was sold. Have a long wait until it's in-hand (5 month flex ), but really looking forward to getting the definitive 3PO.

    I too was sold after watching the review videos. I'm getting mine in July on the Flexpay also, it's the only way I can afford it!

    As far as him fitting in with scale compaired to SSC... where did you see pics of them together? I ask because I too am on the fence with this one because I would display him with the Jabba Dio.. standing on his throne to be exact. LMK

    I'm curious....Do his fingers move too? For something that big, that detailed, and that expensive, I would wonder if they went to that extreme of gimmicks

    Either way, this figure I can only admire from afar. For $400+ just isn't something I want to happily throw around

    That's how he's been advertised from the beginning, in perfect 1:6 scale. But I personally haven't seen any comparison pics with SSC figures.

    Check this thread, over as SSF - Lots of great pics there that I think will push a few people off the fence.

    There's no comparison with SS figures. This shouldn't even be on the same shelf as a SS human figure. The quality of SS figures pales in comparison which is why he'll be going next to my HT Luke. SS will never top this figure, just look at their Boba Fett. Here's some amazing pics of it:

    I can't wait to get this in next month.
