C-3PO Removable Limbs Unpainted (White) First Shot
This is an Early working prototype of Removable Limbs C3PO cast in white plastic.
A couple of cool things about this piece besides being all white, is even though he is the removable limbs C3PO, he is cast from the original C3PO molds bearing the date of 1977.

Also, the machined plastic pegs on his limbs that are inserted into the torso are made of a different color plastic and are glued on. The pegs are also quite a bit shorter than the production piece and the plastic sleeves in the torso that the pegs insert into are also made of a different material than the production piece. He is also held together by a screw in the back.
