Lego Gold C-3PO Number 1 of 5 has been located. This is the second one of these that I have come across in the past few years. See here for the first one. This is quite a rarity to see!

As many of you recall, 5 of these were given by Lego in 2007 – 2008. See here for Details! Lego was even kind enough to announce the winners in their Lego magazine in 2008. I have a copy of all of all the original pages that pertain to this contest in this post here and you can go through them to see the history of this contest.
I have heard that Lego also has two of these in its archives, but I have never been given proof of this. I also heard that they have two Silver and Bronze ones as well. In addition, we also have seen images of the 1 Lego Bronze c-3PO that was given away at 2007 San Diego Comic Con. See here . FInally, we have yet to see images of the Silver C-3PO that was also given away that same year. See here for that one.
This figure currently tops my Lego Top 100 Minifigure Price List at #2, but it is hard to tell if it should be #1 or #2. I also think that I am going to have to raise my estimated prices for these top 7 figures as I think I am a little low on these. I recently saw a Will.i.am figure go for 5K and if that is realistic, these are certainly worth a lot more. I do not know how much, but I would guesstimate 25-50K may be more realistic for these pieces.
It is Gold and it is Star Wars and it is rare! Probably one of the rarest Star Wars pieces in existence anywhere. It also has a pretty good pedigree as well since they can most likely be traced back to the original winners.
I would love to add one of these figures to my collection someday, but I do not think that this is going to happen. Even if it did happen, I would then need to hire a security guard! lol…..
I will post a video of this figure later this weekend as well and I will dream a little that maybe someday I can add one of these to my collection. But probably not in my case. 🙁
Thanks for looking
