A seamless robot (both in film and action figure form) is a bit of a curiosity, but they seem to reproducing the look of the thing accurately. Prepare for custom dioramas of C3-PO's wedding (to something other than R2-D2).

If this actually goes up for PO, I’m in. If you’ve never seen Metropolis, it’s worth a look. What they were able to achieve with in-camera tricks, as far as special effects, during the Silent Era is pretty remarkable. C-3PO owes a lot to the design of Maria, as Lucas himself admitted.

Yes!! I love Metropolis and the whole retro-sci fi influence in Star Wars -- both PT and OT eras -- and would be extremely interested in this figure.
I'm curious if it would be seamless or jointed -- I know you mentioned in the Lost in Space thread that sometimes tbleague makes jointed bodies for this company. While it would seem obvious that a 'robot' would be jointed, I guess I was just thinking that, hmm... wonder if the joints will be built in, or it would be approached more like armour on a seamless body... mimicking the concept of a real person being inside a costume, etc.
So yeah.... more than a little intrigued by this! : )
