As we rev up to the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens later this year, many toy companies have revealed some new products in anticipation for the film. The latest to do so is Medicom with the reveals of the MAFEX C3-PO and R2-D2.
As the images show, C3-PO and R2 are based on their appearance in the original trilogy. As to be expected from the MAFEX line, the detail is phenomenal, especially on the R2 figure. The gold paint on C3 looks beautiful with just the right amount of dirt on him. The detail in R2 is just as stunning to say the least. What’s really funny is these are in the same scale as Hasbro’s Star Wars Black Series and they completely blow them out of the water (even though we don’t quite have C3-PO in the Black Series line just yet).
Accessory wise C3 comes with interchangeable hands, the communicator from the Death Star Scene in New Hope and a figure stand. R2 will come will come with an interchangeable third leg, the serving tray from Jabba’s Barge and a holographic Princess Lea.
These figures are only sold in a set for $105 and will be released next May. You can pre-order them here.
