If there had been a prize, you, sir, would have won it. :)
Aargh, Spongebob, I have something to say!
It's better to burn patties, than fade away!
There can be only ONE... secret recipe.
shared an interesting piece of news he received from a LEGO designer while at
the LEGO WORLD event earlier this year; there is a new chrome-gold C-3PO promotional
minifigure coming! Here is his post about their visit to LEGO WORLD and the details:
I thought to share it with you guys, in case any of you are sitting on the old
ones and planning to sell them for high-prices - those prices may not last with
the new version coming out shortly. Or perhaps they will go up - you never know,
but at least you have some time to plan your strategy. (The reader said the new
ones will be available in the summer.) I'm not clear on how they are planning
to do the colored wires part. Maybe in color? Or just black? Anyhow, just wanted
to give you guys a heads up....(c:
And there was I hoping for a chromed General Grievous :p
I'm sure he has some EU name but as I regard the EU as crap I haven't bothered to learn it. I just remember the old Kenner action figure which was called Pruneface.
For anyone else like me, he means he regards the (Star Wars) Extended Universe as crap, not the European Union!
You can all thank me later :o)
Doh! Ninja'd by Si.
@andhe see thats why we need him as the next chrome figure
No confirmation about how the minifig will be released, so doesn't seem to be a foregone conclusion yet that it's the May 4th promo item.
As for the European Union, I like those chaps!
@princedraven but how do we know it is the May 4th Promo. Aside from this whole disscussion and @Flumps6523 hinting and your telling. How do we know that :-D
Very interesting, I wouldn't be too happy if I'd recently paid the going rate for a chrome C-3PO.

Both mini figs look awesome :)
Considering how different it is from the old original Chrome C-3PO, I'm almost convinced enough to say that it won't make much of an impact on the original. I mean, both figures look so different, and it doesn't seem like the "exclusivity" of this figure is as much as the 1/10,000.
