Thumbs up Last installment of the ANA Star Wars planes coming soon...C3PO!!

I can't wait for this final plane to be made in 1/400 scale. Hoping to get one before others, who buy up 20 or more for there collection whilst others don't get a chance at one, buy them all up.

What do you all think???

Add me to the list for one and only one! Would be great if it were done on the Phoenix mold.

That's a no brainer. I can't have 3 of 4. C-3PO is my favorite of the 4. I really like the character. R2-D2 is close behind. Both the character and the plane.

I think it's the most hideous of the 4, but like Kitty Hawk said, can't have just 3 of 4 lol.

I would appreciate one to go with the other 3.

What is the comment 'I wonder if we'll see three versions of this one too" in reference to?

Compared to the layout of the R2D2 livery, this C3P0 livery really doesn't float my boat. The BB8 77W is ok imo, but the R2D2 definitely looks the best

Just an awkward mash of colors. Gold body, gray wings/engines and blue tail.

Mine arrived but sadly with a chip missing out of a landing gear door. Oh well, could have been worse.

I hope Phoenix goes back and remakes the BB8 version since they are now ~$70+ on ebay. Does Phoenix ever put out new releases of older models? I haven't been in the hobby long enough.

What's wrong with the original?

Hes saying the high demand and low supply for that specific model is driving the price higher, therefore we need more supply to lower the price and make that model more easily obtainable to people not wanting to spend a small fortune

Yep, the BB8 version is $104 with shipping on ebay, too pricy for me.
I think these are all unlicensed?
Why wouldn't they make/sell more is a mystery.
