We are here to show you the best Star Wars gifts and merchandise from our favorite retailers. With the release of The Force Awakens and since Disney bought the Star Wars franchise it opened it up to a whole new generation of fans. Not just your diehard Star Wars fan who like us, saw the first movie in the 70s, but little kids, families and everything in between. Whether you cringe at the thought of going to Disneyland to see the Star Wars exhibit, or you live for it, there’s room for you here at The Gold Robot.
Now we want to share some C3PO love…the droid who is a loyal friend and hard worker with a sharp tongue (but at least he can talk!).
Like Chewbacca and Han, C3PO has a sidekick in R2D2 and a new friend in BB-8. He’s a trusty friend who will go with you anywhere! Plus he can actually talk using real words, which none of them can do! We think C3PO is funny and we like that he has a face. We named our site after him.
Not all sweet, C3PO is really good at insults too, they are very creative! Here are some of our favorite put downs from C3PO:
you overweight glob of grease!
nearsighted scrap pile
You flea-bitten furball!
No one calls C3PO an optimist but at least he calls it as he sees it!
Here is some C3PO trivia for our (and his) fans:
C3PO’s original costume he had for 40 years was fiberglass and it was terribly uncomfortable. He couldn’t sit down. It took 30 minutes to put the head together. The new version of the costume is 3-D printed which makes it so much easier and it can be customized!
C-3PO was friends with BB-8 from the minute they met.
The character C-3PO is a translator fluent in over 6 million forms of communication and acts as a go-between for other characters in the stories.
C3PO tries to do a good job and be useful. Except in this case. In Jabba’s palace C3POs job is to translate, which he didn’t like. He knew what had happened to the last droid who upset Jabba.
C-3PO gets blasted into pieces in Cloud City and then Chewbacca has to carry him and his head bangs against everything.
C-3PO calls Luke, Master Luke most of the time, except in one scene in ‘Star Wars A New Hope’. Luke is cleaning C3PO and R2D2, and at that point C3PO starts referring to Luke as Sir. Luke says to call him Luke. C3PO responds by saying, ‘I see, Sir Luke.’
R2-D2 and C-3PO were almost separated when they were sold by the Jawa’s. Luckily Luke’s uncle buys an R5 rather than R2-D2, keeping the friends together.
Han Solo’s nickname for C-3PO is Golden Rod.
Favorite exchanges between C3PO and other characters:
C-3PO: I beg your pardon, but what do you mean, “naked?”
C-3PO: My parts are showing? Oh, my goodness, oh!
C-3PO: His high exaltedness, the Great Jabba the Hutt, has decreed that you are to be terminated immediately.
Han Solo: Good, I hate long waits.
C-3PO: You will therefore be taken to the Dune Sea, and cast into the pit of Carkoon, the nesting place of the all-powerful Sarlaac.
Han Solo: Doesn’t sound so bad.
C-3PO: In his belly you will find a new definition of pain and suffering as you are slowly digested over a thousand years.
Han Solo: On second thought, let’s pass on that, huh?
C-3PO: I do believe they think I am some kind of god.
Han Solo: Well, why don’t you use your divine influence and get us out of this?
C-3PO: I beg your pardon General Solo, but that just wouldn’t be proper.
Han Solo: Proper?
C-3PO: It’s against my programming to impersonate a deity.
