Hi!

On Brinklink thereīs an entry for a different colored C-3PO than usual:
Posted Imagecompared to Posted Image

Itīs been labeled as a Set 10144 production error but itīs a new official LEGO-color that was used intentionally - hereīs a discussion link   from BL *sweet*! It can be found in Sandcrawler sets produced after may 2007. The hands looks bad though as itīs the old ones >:-(.

Was that colour ever used in parts before ? Looks way darker than the bottom of the new droideka part  ;-)

This minifigure (SW161 - C-3P0 - Pearl Gold (Set 10144 production error)):

http://www.bricklink...tem.asp?M=sw161

Is currently labeled as a "(Set 10144 production error)" - to my knowledge,
and based on LEGO's response, this was not a "production error" but simply a
purposeful color substitution.

I saw the topic UB  ;-)  But the regular / normal C3-PO is Pearl Gold  ;-)  That still doesn't answer my question regarding the color of tha new C3-PO  ;-)

I almost went to buy one from BL :-D  instead though, I'll just buy another sandcrawler...

Those look absolutely amazing.  Very nice color change *wub*  I guess this is their reaction to all the people upset about not getting a chrome 3PO

Yes, edit: No, that's pearl light gold. I think this one is a beautiful new copper color.

Like the copper speckle color, except it's not mixed in with the metallic black.....

Wow, awesome news!  Thanks!  I am not a SW collector, (too expensive because I collect BIONICLE and City) but I love SW, and now there's a 4th 3PO I have to get this!!!!  Thanks!

*wub*  That really is a great fig
This makes me wonder,Will all the new sets have that color C3PO or only the sandcrawler?
Hehe,good thing I haven't purchased the sandcrawler yet  :-D
Or the jabbas barge or the new Slave 1 or the ISD
Why you ask?
Its a simple matter of logic
One day they will go on sale and I can get them at really low prices
The week or so before they get the new summer sets,every lego from last year will go on sale
Thats the day I pick up most of my Lego
(good thing hardly anyone visits the Lego Isle here or we'd be out in like a day  X-D)

Wow! That is nice. Shame about the $50.00 BrickLink price, but hopefully it will be in a new set soon. (The sandcrawler is too expensive for Australians.)

Aww Maaaannn!

Not another C3PO that I'm going to get fleeced for!

He looks ace, a possible alternative to the gold chrome one?

I hope they keep up production of this variety and ditch the old 'toffee' coloured one!

Hi

I got one of these C3POs in a Sandcrawler back in March - presumed they simply changed the figure. That would be too early for it to be a response to the "Golden" figures? Set was purchased from S@H.

Have only started reading the forums recently, hence never mentioning it before. First post  BTW.

Shame he's not in the UCS Millennium Falcon. Though for that money, I think it would be reasonable to expect a chrome gold one.

Haha, yeah, it would've been nice if they gave us the chrome gold one, but as they said all future c3po would be this new color, it's likely that the UCS MF will have them

I think the new C-3PO is way better than the old one. That colour is so beautiful!  *wub*  But the old hands look weird on the new torso... I hope TLC change that.  :-/  
But it's sad that there's no C-3PO in the sets from this year... I hope there will be one in one of the next year's sets.  I don't want to buy a second Sandcrawler, there are other sets I want to add to my collection!  X-D
