I'd use a tiny bit of E6000 (the stuff likes to run) If you use a super glue it could haze the surface.

I don't know if your C3PO is a costume or for display unit?
But I would be worried of a lot of handling could put stress on the greeblies, as they are only glued to the thin layer of metal which is only sitting on the surface of your Droid,
a good knock could peal the vac metal off.
I'm not an expert but I have worked with vacuum plated parts, I would think by drilling a small hole into the plastic bellow would let the glue grip onto something more solid.
Hope this is of some help
Gary
