Get your own C-3PO on eBay

eBay goodies from Bayraider, Robots

He’s everyone’s favourite camp movie droid, and now C-3PO is available to stand in the corner of your living room. At least, he is if you have $2,500 to spend on a life-size replica that’s for sale on eBay. He’s grey, as based on the Episode II C-3PO before he went in to a droid garage for his golden respray, and has brand-new LEDs in his eyes. Sounds like a bargain.

Also today on Bayraider: a tribal torch prop from the original 1933 King Kong movie, and a man trying to flog a Steve Irwin doll for six million dollars, yet can’t spell ‘crikey’.
