Solid Gold C-3PO & Sterling Silver R2-D2 Anniversary Figurines

Time goes by so fast, and before you know it, you will have memories from a time which you thought were never going to become the past. A day can turn into a week and a week to a month in a way that will almost scare the socks off your feet. An interesting thought though is that if you keep thinking about it, time will seemingly travel faster. I think I am not alone when I say that we can all remember the first time we ever saw the first Star Wars movie. It’s a memory that I am sure will always stay fond to you, and it will most likely become fresh every time Lucasfilm decides it’s time for another re-release, edition or reboot. It’s a phenomenon that few movie franchises have had the honor to experience.

It so happens that Star Wars celebrates its 35th anniversary of the very first Star Wars movie soon, and that of course has to be commemorated. I don’t know if Lucasfilm commissioned this or if it’s yet another “under the table” black market item, but a company in Japan, Imperial Enterprises Inc., created the ultimate celebratory figurines of the most memorable characters in the Star Wars galaxy, R2-D2 and C-3PO. They are not just ordinary figurines either. C-3PO stand 3.94″ above the ground and R2-D2 stands 1.41,” but there is something about these that will have you drool.

C-3PO is made out of solid gold while R2-D2 is made out of pure Sterling silver. They are available now if you are interested, but be sure you’ll have to empty that wallet of yours since they are quite expensive. C-3PO will set you back a cool $6,000 while R2-D2 will push your budget to about $1,800. No doubt will these figurines become hot collector’s items once they are out of stock, so you better hurry if you have a few bucks left over after paying your bills. These have to be the ultimate collector’s dream items, right? The only thing is, where would you put them? I mean, if you were to have your home burglarized, you wouldn’t be able to live with yourself I am sure.
