Protocol Droid C-3PO was released in a Target exclusive 2-pack in Fall 2010 together with astromech droid R2-D2. The set was part of the Geonosis Arena Showdown series - which started in 2009 during The Legacy Collection - and by Fall of 2010 consisted of twelve 2-packs totaling 24 figures. C-3PO is based on his appearance in Attack Of The Clones - where he got lost in the Geonosis droid factory - and accidentally ended up with a Battle Droid head on his torso.
3-PO has 14 points of articulation - including ball-joints in the neck - shoulders - elbows - the waist - knees and ankles. The only swivel joints are in both wrists and legs. The figure stands very well on its own - without any balancing problems. The head can easily be pulled off the socket - and be replaced with the Battle Droid head. Both heads plug-in very well and stay firmly attached. Hasbro also included a basic Battle Droid blaster - which unfortunately is a little too big for C-3PO's hands. He can hold it - but just barely and it's likely to fall out after a while.
The paint application on the Geonosis C-3PO is fantastic. There is lots of "dirt" on the figure - giving it a nice used appearance. The cables in the middle of the torso are painted in various colors and look nice as well. Even the knee joints are painted well - and match the rest of the figure's color quite well. The sculpt itself turned out brilliantly and captures C-3PO's likeness perfectly. All in all - this super articulated C-3PO can easily be recommended - and makes a fine addition to the line-up of Attack Of The Clones figures.
The Jedi Knights rush to Geonosis to rescue Obi-Wan - Anakin and Padme from execution. The Jedi brandish their lightsabers against the Geonosian warriors and the massive army of battle droids - super battle droids and droidekas. All hope seems lost that any Jedi will survive this battle - then Yoda arrives with an army of clone troopers. Although many Jedi are lost that day - others survive this climatic battle that ushers in the Clone Wars.
