Today was time for another Star Wars Power of the Force action figure for my son. C3-PO (phonetically spelled See-Threepio, and called Threepio for short) is the new one I gave him. Now this wasn't his first C3-PO figure but robots are always cool and he actually told me "Je l'aime", which is french for "I love him".
C-3PO is a protocol droid designed to serve humans, and boasts that he is fluent "in over six million forms of communication." C-3PO is generally seen with his long-time counterpart, R2-D2, a small, quirky astromech droid. Threepio's main function as a protocol droid is to assist with etiquette, customs, and translation so that meetings of different cultures run smoothly. Along side of the astromech droid R2-D2, Threepio played a vital and pivotal role in the Galaxy's history.
And for those wondering, the laminated poster on the back is for the South Korean horror film THE HOST signed by the director Bong Joon-ho.
