Black C-3PO

29 10 2011

Found this on Funny or Die, thought I would share it with you.

During the re-release of the original Star Wars movies to Blu-Ray, George Lucas had been toying with the idea of having a “more modern, urban sounding” C-3PO. This was the result.

C-3PO Backpack (revisited) Makes for World’s Most Obnoxious iPad Case

12 05 2010

I was surfing around, and I was impressed to see the popularity of the plush C-3PO backpack increasing significantly. I was also impressed to see it written about in the same conversation holding a negative note towards apple’s ipad. Here is a direct copy of the article found at: http://gizmodo.com/5537022/c+3po-backpack-makes-for-worlds-most-obnoxious-ipad-case

The best moment of the Star Wars trilogy was when C-3PO was nearly destroyed. Now you can commemorate that moment with the pleather C-3PO backpack.

Just like in the film, the robot isn’t all that useful—he comes with a mesh bag that’s basically only good for carrying himself along with any of his loose appendages. However, you can stuff his cavity with small objects—the iPad appears to be about the max payload—in a manner I like to imagine to be quite painful. When you’re done with the backpack, C-3PO can be reassembled in full as a 3-foot plush toy.


I still think it is a cool backpack, and I strongly suggest you get one. Especially if you have $500 to throw away on an over sized ipod touch, I think you should have this great collectors item to carry it in.

Description:
C-3PO Portrait Plate
Modern Portrait Plate
Altered Antique Plate

This is a super sweet antique, hand painted, porcelain plate. It has a wonderful pink and purple floral design with a light blue watercolor wash background. It appears to be old (40’s?) but there are no markings.

This is a small plate with a diameter of 6.5″.

I have used a transfer and heat technique to seal the image into the plate.

This can be used as a decorative modern portrait wall hanging or as a super cool desk accessory. This plate is for decorative purposes and not made to be eaten off.

Check out my other altered antique plates!

Discounts available if you are interested in multiple plates.

Let me know if you want to purchase a wire hanger to hang the plate on the wall. This is a flat rate addition of $4.00.

This is the most amazing addition to the C-3PO fashion category, and an exciting addition to school day fashion. I want one for sure, and I think you should force your kids to rock it as well, if they don’t like C-3PO… tell them this is as close to being Chewbacca as they can get before college. HA!

C-3PO’s Vegetable Vacation Photos

24 04 2010

Here I am surfing around for some new C-3PO devoted sites and materials for you, when I came across a very interesting web page devoted to C-3PO. It is a display of fan art, the purpose of this page is unknown, outside of the obvious region. This web page is a collection of photos of C-3PO on his vacation to a planet that is made of large vegetables. You can view the original page here: http://www.aq.org/~kevin/c3po/

I want to thank this Kevin for this. Below is a reproduction of the web page found on aq.org

Since Lucasfilm Ltd. refused to let C-3PO put these up on his official site, I agreed to put them up on my site.
C-3PO went on a vacation to the planet of the giant vegetables. Yes, there really is a planet of giant vegetables. There is a planet that is all ice. There is a planet that is all desert. There is a planet that is all swamp. So there is a planet that is all giant vegetables.

C-3PO’s first stop was at the green peppers. He wanted to show off that he could climb them, but he got himself stuck, as you can see in the picture below. He did not want to go forwards or backwards for fear of falling. Moments after this picture was taken, he got distracted trying to converse with one of the native giant aphids, and fell anyway.

C-3PO signed up for a big-game hunt. Unfortunately, he didn’t catch anything. Here he is posing next to two giant eggplants that the guide caught.

Moments after this picture was taken, C-3PO was arrested for lewd conduct with vegetables. The next three days of his vacation were taken up bribing various officials to drop the charges.

The lettuce forests of the giant vegetable planet are difficult to pass through, being very dense. Luckily, C-3PO is even more dense, so it was no problem for him

Local legend tells of the Great Onion that will rise up out of the onion patch on All Onions’ Eve. None of the locals really believe it, but C-3PO waited in this onion patch for an entire day. Needless to say, the Great Onion did not appear.

Here is C-3PO “riding the squash”. The less said about this the better.

Here we see C-3PO with just a few of the many varieties of giant tomatoes that grow on the giant vegetable planet. One of the ranch hands started talking about Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, and C-3PO got out of there quickly.

Tired from a full day of bungee jumping, C-3PO rests among the autumn poem, a leafy plant from the eastern part of the giant vegetable planet.

C-3PO was really wiped out the last couple of days of his trip. He mostly just switched his napping position to different vegetable patches. Here he is with the carrots.

And here’s C-3PO napping on the very last day in the shade of this giant zucchini. It was a fun vacation, but he can’t wait to get home.
