Electronic Talking C-3PO Figure / Vintage Star Wars Protocol Droid

Rare vintage Electronic Talking C-3PO toy figure review and demonstration. In this video I showcase my C3PO toy, the infamous Star Wars protocol droid. This C-3PO action figure doesn’t have his usual golden shell, as seen in Star Wars Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace, where Anakin Skywalker has yet to fully assemble him. This video also features a short stop-motion animation sequence of C-3PO being repaired. Enjoy!

My Toy Robot Collection // 2018 UPDATE

Here’s an updated video of the toy robots that are currently in my collection. I have a mixture of both old vintage robots as well as modern tin plate reproductions. This is mainly because original tin toy robots from the golden era go for ridiculously high amounts of money. Most ordinary folks, me included, just cannot justify spending that much! Early on in my collecting journey I came to the conclusion that I’d rather have several reproductions that work, rather than one rusty shelf queen that doesn’t. It’s the magic of these toy robots coming alive and moving that is the fun part!
