Lighting my own limes

I picked up a few awesome C-3PO pieces at Celebration3. And what good is scoring awesome pieces if you don't brag about it? And what better place to brag about it than my own spiffy little site??

One of the coolest pieces I got was this little, metal, Japanese figure manufactured under the "Zetca" label. There were 5 Zetca toys produced. R2-D2, X-Wing fighter and TIE fighter are all relatively common. C-3PO is very rare. The Landspeeder... well... that one is just ridiculously rare. I'm talking "most dealers haven't seen one in person in their lives" rare.

Thank goodness I'm a 3PO focus collector so that I'll never feel the desire to complete a Zetca set. I'm more than happy just get my hands on the 3PO by itself. It's a really cool piece. The whole card is only 5.5" tall. The figure... less than half that. The card has really kitchy graphics. Gotta love the instructions on the back! Here... take a look!

Cool-looking. Rare. C-3PO centric. What more could you ask for?? How about a custom-built protective case?! That's right... I had that acrylic case built especially for this uniquely-sized collectible. I just sent the measurements to my buddy Oscar from Oscar's Cases. Gotta love that Oscar's Cases quality! And now I never have to worry about dusting the thing.

I guess that's all I have. Thanks for allowing me to share! Like you have a choice... is not affiliated with Lucasfilm Ltd. or any of its licensees... damn them to hell.
