C-3PO & R2-D2 Regular edition C-3PO And R2-D2 Premium Format Figure Set from Sideshow Collectibles Premium Format Figures Regular Edition
Sideshow Collectibles always said they would be willing to explore articulation if and when they produced a Premium Format Figure based on a Droid, and when the work-in-progress image of the C-3PO portion of this set was revealed in a collecting panel at the 2009 San Diego Comic-Con, all in attendance saw that they were going to pull it off. When the set was fully revealed During SSC's 2012 May The Fourth event. The Droids went up for pre-order on June 26, 2012, and collectors not too busy shooting pictures of Sideshow Collectibles statues and figures were able to get in on the exclusive edition, which was limited to only 200 pieces. Everyone else got this set pictured here. The set began shipping at the end of July, 2013.
