Alright, I just finished uncrating C-3PO this morning, so here's some pics! As you can see, I happened to grab my MR
LE dooku and my e-11 on the way out the door. Figured that would make for some good pictures.
So, there they are. The C-3PO is really amazing. It's the best of the bunch, hands down. It's absolutely beautiful in person. Best finish on a C-3PO that I have ever seen. C-3PO came from northern california, and r2-d2 came from london. R2 was purchased on the day that C-3PO was scheduled to be picked up, but he arrived about 2 full weeks sooner. The freight company was really slow about crating C-3PO. It also made me mad at one point when I found out that they were not crating up C-3PO at the seller's location, that they were just bringing it back to their wearhouse to crate it up there. At no point during the multiple phone calls to the shipping company did they mention bringing it back to their wearhouse before crating it up. I can understand why they did that, but it's unacceptable to me that they didn't tell me specifically that it would be handled that way. However, it arrived in one piece (well, 4 pieces actually) and undamaged, so in the end, we were successful.
