C-3PO [FOTD #1,515]. Black protocol droids are nothing new, and some like I-5YQ [FOTD #1,382] had nifty things like a hidden compartment.
The figure is the same as C-3PO, minus colors, for good and for ill. This time around the removable face mask, back plate, and chest plate are somewhat loose. The back plate fell off as I was taking it out of the package, and the face flung off on the floor while I was examining it for the first time. Take care when opening the package and playing with it - it would not surprise me at all if you lose a piece in the carpet. A fourth panel on the thigh comes off without much fuss, but it doesn't seem to be as loose. 0-0-0 has over 20 points of articulation, can't sit very well, and looks superb. The eyes aren't as bright and as red as they frequently appeared in the comics, but it's a good representation of the skinny cybernetic psycho.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Hasbro as a sample, but it was sold at San Diego Comic-Con and also HasbroToyShop.com.
