Hot Wheels: C-3PO

C-3POf
I am not a Star Wars fan. (I’m more of an ST:TNG guy.) I also seldom buy non-mainline Hot Wheels. But this Hot Wheels Star Wars Character Car: C-3PO is so stunning that my wife and daughter let me buy it.

At 600 pesos, this is the most expensive scale model I’ve ever bought. (But it’s not the most expensive scale model that I have.)

The Chewbacca truck looks really nice. (Click on some of the pictures to see higher-resolution versions of them.)

I suspect the body and the base are made of plastic, making this model a little overpriced.

I always assumed that C-3PO‘s name ends in the number 0 because the name of his partner (R2-D2) is composed of two letter-number pairs. I just learned that his name ends in a letter O.

This single pack has a bright gold color, but the 2-pack (with R2-D2) has a dirty gold color.
