Whether you like the deformed proportions that have become popular with companies like Funko and Herocross, you can’t deny that the Herocross Metal Figuration figures are pretty damned awesome. I’ve got a couple of the early ones (Mickey, Batman, and Darth Vader) and am just as impressed with them as when I got them. What amazes me most, other than the sculpt is that they joints on such heavy metal parts are just as tight as they were a few years ago. I would have expected them to be like rag dolls by now.
Anyways, they’ve now just released all the pics for the upcoming C-3PO and R2-D2 metal figuration set. They look pretty great. Check out the info and pics below.
HEROCROSS – HMF#024 R2-D2 and C-3PO
R2-D2 and C-3PO are the most iconic droids in the Star Wars movie universe.
R2-D2 is an excellent starship mechanic and computer interface specialist. He is a brave, intelligent, bold and decisive navigation mechanic droid. Its body is very small, standing in at only 0.96 meters, filled with a variety of tools and mechanics inside, which is used to service aircraft and carry out covert missions. R2-D2 has three legs, left and right whilst idle, whilst the third center leg deploys when he’s moving. In our product, the center leg can be removed when it is not in use.
C-3PO is a droid which is made of recyclables components, he speaks more than 600 alien languages languages, he’s a smart and loyal droid built by Anakin Skywalker. HEROCROSS has given threepio with a high proportion of die-cast metal parts, and also features a fully poseable body with over 20 points of articulation. This gives the figure great mobility!
C-3PO has also built in LED light in his eyes.
