When we initially walked into the Bluefin Distribution booth, the items that were on display overwhelmed us. There were tons of awesome items for our eyes to race through, but the first item our team ran to was the Perfect Model C-3PO, and boy was this figure awesome.

Designed in the 12" scale, this C-3PO Perfect Model figure is based on the actual height of Anthony Daniels and features an immense amount of detail and stunning accuracy. As a matter of fact, Threepio was so neat, we were actually allowed to free him from behind the glass case and photograph the figure out in the elements to capture the true detailing.

As we were shooting the Perfect Model Threepio, the guys over at BlueFin ran through a list of specs for us (our jaws were to the floor, so we were catching flies, mind you). Threepio features interchangeable hands, light-up eyes, a super-neat Blockade Runner base, is constructed with metal die cast material (it weighs more than a brick...at least that's what I think), and the mid-section features actual wire.

The edition size has yet to be determined, but you can pre-order the Perfect model C-3PO here, straight from Sideshow Collectibles.

We can't stress enough how truly awesome this figure is until you have him in your hands. I know this piece will make a great addition to existing Sideshow collections, or imported toy collections.

Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
