History

This vintage C-3PO action figure was made for the release of Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back in 1978. General Mills Fun Group did release a different version a year prior, for the release of the first film, Star Wars (1977). This second incarnation is a little taller and has better proportions in my opinion. There are only five joints: the head, arms and legs. There are no elbow or knee joints.
