How do you prove you’re truly a hardcore Star Wars fan? I would say that spending $5,950 for a life-size C-3PO figure, and $5,450 for his astromech sidekick R2-D2 would be more than adequate. Sideshow Collectibles now has both of these droids available for pre-order and they’ll actually ship sometime in the third quarter of this year.
Besides being incredibly accurate reproductions, both figures are made from fiberglass and feature lights and sounds powered by a set of AA batteries. They each come with their own display base as well as a magnetically attached restraining bolt to keep them in check. I can only assume that both droids will be available in limited quantities, so if you’d like to pre-order either one you’ll need to cough up a $950, non-refundable deposit.
