12" Droids C-3PO - Proto or No?
submitted by:Bill Cable 07.23.03 at 12:01am
Aw crap... it looks like there are some people out there questioning the legitimacy of the 12" C-3PO proto I posted images of last week. I've seen statements like "that's not a real prototype" and "because everything posted on CC.com is true" from some very respected collectors. Well I'm here to answer all the questions and remove any doubts. I assure you that the figure is 100%...

Oh wait a minute... one of my staffers just alerted me to the fact that some "new" photos of this Droids C-3PO have popped up on the Internet. Let's take a looksie...

Aw, come on now... that doesn't mean nothing! Just some guy cleaning out the joints of his favorite figure. Nothing newsworthy there. Now, back to my point... I assure you that the figure is 100%...

What's that? More photos? Probably just more junk with mister clean-freak. Let's see what these ones look like...

Aw... now that's just not right! Time for some damage control... Ignore those photos! They're obviously doctored or something! The 3PO proto I posted was real... REAL I TELL YOU!!!

It was... I say it... I just can't do it anymore... I cannot perpetuate this ruse any longer! The 3PO I posted photos of last week - I MADE IT!!! It's not a prototype!! It's my custom!!! And you guys fell for it hook, line and sinker!!! SUCKERS!!! HAHahahahaha!!! Look at you guys... Calling Eddie A??? (BTW, sorry about that Eddie) Giving me kudos in the chat room and the RS forums?? (I really love how the chat room guys fell for it, despite the fact that I never explicitly said it was real... classic!!) E-mailing me for more information??? Man, it was great!

Do you honestly think that if I actually picked up what would have been the HOLY GRAIL of all C-3PO prototypes that I would post the news on my comedy/satire site??? I'd litter the forums with photos if it was real! I'm amazed that anybody fell for this at all! I won't mention any names of anybody I fooled or anything *cough*EdLee*cough*... that would just be mean-spirited. But I guess I take the most comfort in the fact that my customizing skills are solid enough to fool even the elite prototype collectors in this hobby. Score one for the Billster!!

Tune in next week when I'll show off some of my super-rare ROTJ/POTF transition pieces and my DROIDS SKIFF!!!
