Medicom MAFEX C-3PO and R2-D2 Slated for May 2016 Release

Medicom MAFEX C-3PO and R2-D2

Medicom has announced their  MAFEX C-3PO and R2-D2, revealed at the Summer Wonder Festival in July, are coming in May 2016.

The 6-inch-scale droid duo include a roundup of accessories from the original trilogy Star Wars movies and feature weathered paint applications indicative of the adventures they’ve been on together. The gold-plated C-3PO is fully articulated and has interchangeable hands including one with a commlink, while Artoo sports a third leg, the serving tray seen in Return of the Jedi and a holographic Princess Leia. Unfortunately, the measuring stick for these figures, Medicom’s Darth Vader and Stormtrooper figures, have been delayed numerous times and have yet to be released.

The MAFEX C-3PO and R2-D2 are being sold as a pair, with pre-orders now being taken in Japan for ¥10,584 or about $87.
