In a moisture farm in a desertic, hot, and arid world called Tatooine, a small astromech droid and his best friend and ally, an eloquent protocol droid, begin another adventure tied by destiny and the dynasty of the Skywalker family. In this remote place, dedicated to the production of water through the drawing of moisture from the dry air, property of the Lars family into which Luke Skywalker was adopted, both robotic partners were purchased by the owner of these lands, with the goal of delivering an extremely important message to an old Jedi Master. Gathering forces with the young Luke Skywalker, these unmistakable droids begin another adventure, joining the Rebel Alliance and helping to pave the way to victory of the heroes and the fall of the evil Galactic Empire. Always together, they are the only characters present in all the 9 movies of the saga, in the spin-off Rogue One, and much more. Among the most beloved characters from Star Wars, Iron Studios proudly bring the statue “C-3PO and R2-D2 Deluxe – Star Wars – Art Scale 1/10”, presenting these iconic symbols of Star Wars together for the first time in a statue by Iron Studios.
C-3PO is a protocol droid 3PO unit designed to interact with organics, programmed primarily for etiquette and protocol. He is fluent in over six million forms of communication and developed a fussy and worry-prone personality throughout his many decades of operation. Alongside his counterpart, the astromech droid R2-D2, C-3PO constantly found himself directly involved in pivotal moments in the timeline of the galactic history. C-3PO was build from spare parts by Anakin Skywalker, a human slave who lived in Mos Espa, a city on the Outer Rim world of Tatooine. C-3PO’s memory was erased, though R2-D2’s memory was not. C-3PO and R2-D2 were assigned to the Alderaan cruiser Tantive IV, where they served senator Bail Organa for 19 years. At some point during this time, C-3PO’s right leg was fitted with mismatched painting. The pair then became embroiled in the Galactic Civil War when Leia Organa of the Rebel Alliance entrusted them to bring a copy of the Death Star plans to the Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi on Tatooine. After meeting Luke Skywalker and the smuggler Han Solo, the droid helped rescue Princess Leia from the Empire’s Death Star. Soon they got involved with the three humans, helping the Rebellion to defeat the Empire and restore freedom to the galaxy.
