I'm happy with my purchase. I've heard some having issues out of the box... mine arrived in perfect condition. The look is perfect... weathering is a little heavy handed but not over the top. You need to be careful with the connection joints and such as they are fragile. He looks the part and is great in my SW display!
Fragile but well worth it

It is a stunning figure. The detail is incredible, the weathering making it look like it was just shipped from Tatooine. The figure matches perfectly to the Star Wars Hot Toys range. The only downer is just how fragile the arm servos are. Take extra care how you pose it and you will be fine
Happy with my C3PO

I really was excited to get this figure! Proportions are good and he really looks good in person except for a couple areas. The weathering is a little iffy and over done… they could have went less in my opinion, and the thumbs are incorrect. As seen on a couple forums, Sideshow made the thumb posts inside the hand wrong and the thumb moves / act like a finger. Outside those 2 issues, I really like this guy. Especially paired with R2D2 from SS… they look killer on the shelf together!
Droid your looking for

Solid offering from Sideshow.

The long-awaited C-3PO 1/6 figure from Sideshow is a solid offering that appears far more screen accurate in hand than promotional materials might suggest. Although Sideshow falters on human likeness, their robots and creatures from the 'Star Wars' universe have all been terrific.
C-3PO's head sculpt here appears very accurate to his appearance in 'A New Hope', with the fine detail of the droid's features captured exceptionally well and with welcome attention to proportion and symmetry. This is a hard sculpt to accurately capture, as otherwise impressive previous 1/6 versions suggest: some overestimate the size of the eyes or give undue prominence to the mouth - giving Threepio either an insectoid look or a 'Metropolis' vibe that evokes the original Ralph McQuarrie character designs. Sideshow have captured the facial idiosyncrasies very well, conveying the softness of the design amid the sharper robotic lines.
The body appears very accurate too, with solid articulation within the confines of the design. Proportions feel right, albeit with slightly oversized hands. (Indeed the thumbs look unwieldy and misaligned, which can be fixed - according to fan talk via social media.) Slight weathering at stress points and faint speckling on the legs gives the figure a worn vibe, which is perfectly in keeping with C-3PO's appearance in 'A New Hope'.
But it must be emphasised that this is a fragile figure. Arm articulation, especially, must be done very gently, allowing the 'servomotors' to slide slowly in their respective grooves. And be careful with the batteries inside the figure's head, as the terminals are very flimsy. My suggestion is to leave the batteries alone, rather than try to extract them - as damage could very easily be done.
With these caveats in mind, this figure is likely the most screen accurate C3PO in the 1/6 range. Certainly one might favour other releases for their sturdy design or build, but I feel the Sideshow Threepio is the most accurate visually - and displays exceptionally well with Sideshow's companion figure, the 1/6 R2D2.
