Star Wars Droid: C-3PO Protocol Droid (The Phantom Menace) 

       
 
C-3PO

I liked the "endoskeleton" C-3PO, but there were a couple of things on the figure that I thought could have been done better. The biggest thing was the eyes; the "real" C-3PO has yellow eyes that light up when the droid is active. I realize this is hard to reproduce on a vinyl figure, but I still don't understand why the eyes were painted white. To fix this, I covered the eyes with bare-metal, and painted the holes black and the surfaces turn signal amber. This gives and appearance closer to that of older 3PO toys. I also repainted some of the wires and hoses, mostly those around his head and chest.
