This Samurai Inspired C-3P0 Figure Is The Greatest Golden Rod Figure Ever Produced

Bandai Tamashii Nations has released product photos for an upcoming C-3P0 action figure, and quite frankly it’s the greatest looking C-3P0 figure to have ever been produced. If you’re familiar with the Star Wars Meisho Movie Realization line from Bandai Tamashii Nations, then you’ll understand why this version of Golden Rod is so awesome and unique.

You see, this line portrays Star Wars characters with a style that reflects those of the Samurai culture in ancient Japan, so their style is quite different from any other Star Wars action figure. I’m a huge fan of the line and own every Star Wars figure in it, and this new C-3P0 samurai figure will certainly be joining them. I just love how odd it looks, yet it still manages to capture the essence of the galaxy’s most iconic protocol droid. At the same time he looks like a badass, but also a wuss, which to me perfectly embodies the spirit of the character.

At this time a firm release date hasn’t been released, but it should drop sometime during the first quarter of 2019. Pricing isn’t available either, but it will more than likely fall in the $80-$100 range, which is what most of the other entries have gone for. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
