I scored a brass cast TamashiI 1:6 C3-PO for less than $300 and then sold my Sideshow 3-PO for $200! Still can't believe this happen....The Tamashi piece is quite amazing, he's very heavy, his articulation is very tight for poses despite being heavy, eyes light up - a little too bright, the only thing I didn't love is that he was very clean like in the Yavin medal ceremony. I'm a Tatooine fan and he needed to be dirty like when he was on Tatooine. So here's my first go at it. I used Testors black and sand acrylic washes and a baby wipe to dap it off.

Never knew these existed but what a cool idea using brass. It looks amazing. Perfect weathering for that pre lubrication bath look, lol.

Thanks guys! For most of the weathering I do, I follow the ILM method that Cameron told me about - three to four colors of washes: black, sand, brown, & rust. I applied black pretty generously then dabbed it off with a baby wipe, let dry, then follow with tan on the feet and lower calves, then detailed the soles of feet with brown. The baby wipes are just damp enough to pull some of the paint off but not all of it. Do not wipe! Very the wipe in different “wads or folds” to very the texture. On 3-PO, I went over him the next day with a tiny brush with the black wash to simulate the drips and runs of oil & lubricant.

I have to admit, it took me several months to decide and build up the nerve to weather this guy. I got a smokin’ deal on this guy, but these Tamashii C3-POs are upwards of $750 these days. So a fat cocktail was consumed for added courage! I am happy with the out come, he’s very Tatooine now. Thanks again for the nice comments, it always feels good to have others that you like, respect, and trust compliment your work!

My buddy Russellsch sent me some amber colored transparency to change the eyes to the correct color, thanks Russ! This was very easy and makes the eyes the perfect screen accurate color!

Surgery - remove the face, remove the two silver phillip screws and black plastic retainers, remove the white LED diffuser piece, place colored slide between the brass eye panel and diffuser, and reassemble!

Besides weatherin, this is by far the best mod you could do! Thanks again Russ!
