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.

What Would C-3PO Do?

12 07 2010

A new blog added to the universe of C-3PO, titled “What Would C-3PO Do?”

The purpose of this blog is to set up some hypothetical situations, and place C-3PO in that situation, and to discuss how he would react in the given situation.

This blog has a good premise and is showing some promise, we will see where it goes from there. I am excited to see where it goes, and sheds some more of the spotlight on the golden protocol droid!

You can view the blog at the following address:

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.

c-3po plush back pack

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!

A post I found at:

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.





C-3PO Sneakers: Nike Blazer ‘C3PO’ Customs Always Wired

10 02 2010

With Adiddas’ latest fashion movement embracing Star Wars themed foot wear and apperal, I was surprised that I haven’t seen a C-3PO version leaked onto the Internet yet. Being that C-3PO fashion seems to be making it’s way into the mainstream, a venture of research was undertaken to located a C-3PO shoe. What was found was not that produced by Adiddas, but by rival Nike found on widefashion.com

The article read as follows:
Opulence can be measured in the quantity of gold you have in your possession. It goes without saying that wearing this sneaker will give you the looks of opulence beyond doubt.

The Nike Blazer ‘C3PO’ Customs sneaker is without doubt an attractive footwear that will make you proud. If you’re a Star Wars fan then the name would definitely ring a bell. C3PO is surely one of the lovable characters in the series which got the fancy of movie freaks.

The sneaker comes in a gold foil material making it a real C3PO look-alike, except that it doesn’t talk like a robot. It does have all the shine and charisma of C3PO which has captivated fans of all ages the world over. The silver strip on the midsole is reminiscent of C3PO’s silver right leg in the movie.

You have to get the Nike Blazer ‘C3PO’ Customs sneaker if only for the translucent Nike swoosh with different colored wires inside. The wires are just right to keep C3PO always wired and reconfigured.
