Finally, the six inch scale Artoo gets a C-3PO to go with him, although for whatever reason the main retail version is the Force Awakens version. There is a classic trilogy version with silver leg, but that's a Walgreens exclusive. But I'm glad to finally get Goldenrod himself in this scale. It's a good looking Threepio, but the articulation really bugs me. For the most part, it's good. But the arms. The arms! They're sculpted with the pistons, so bonus points for accuracy, but that means that there is no elbow articulation at all. So the arms are stuck kind of awkwardly hanging no matter how you position them. While I suppose that the actual costume was pretty stiff, it would have been nice to have at least some elbow movement.
