Character's First Appearance:  Star Wars (1977) (Episode IV: A New Hope)
Toy Based on Appearance in: Star Wars (1977)
Style: Modern Action Figure

One of the first characters to appear onscreen in the original 1977 movie.
You had to buy several figures (six to be exact) to get the parts needed to assemble a complete U-3PO.

This is the first silver version.  There was also a champagne colored version as well.  Sometimes it is difficult to tell which version is which, if it's a bad photo, or in poor light.

This series of figures is starting to become pretty expensive online, and difficult to find.

This body is in my mind the best "protocol droid" style body they've done.  Why haven't they made a C-3PO with this body?
