[Poll] Vader vs 3PO: the showdown of the chrome exclusives!

Postby Solo » Fri Feb 20, 2009 12:08 am

I don't remember which one is rarer, but I'm sure someone can fill in that stat for me... I was just wondering what the general population in here thought of the two. I know C3PO makes more sense chromed, but Vader gets my vote.

I reckon 3PO is much rarer now. It's distribution has long since past, and it's numbers were ~10,000 max. Vader is right now, ~10,000 to be distributed in the US, some have already been given out in Europe, and there are rumours that they'll be more on the way.
3PO seems more like an exclusive, but gosh darn it, Vader is cooler.

Well, 3PO is definitely shinier. The chrome on the Vader just doesn't reflect like ol' Goldenrod does.

I don't have a Vader personally, but my logical half thinks Threepio being chromed makes more sense of the two. he's supposed to be shiny; a sparkly Vader is fine but is more of a stretch.

...but it's still neat. ;)

Chrome 3PO get's my vote. What sets did the chrome 3PO and Vader come with anyway?

3po all the way. to me, chroming vader doesn't really make sense, but i am not complaining. any exclusive fig is a nice surprise.

i would venture to guess our next chrome fig, if they keep this up, would be a "white chrome" stormtrooper. :shock:

3-PO for me. I have them both, and I think Vader is really neat, but a bit "why?". Threepio is really really cool. I even built an all-LEGO display case for him: http://lego.zoomin.se/P1757647

Nice display case!

As for which is neater, I don't have either one, but I think C3PO looks coolest.
Vader is still cool, but as others have mentioned, C3PO makes more sense as a chromed figure.

Exactly Ace... exactly.

I hope they decide to give R2 a chrome job as well, because that would make me all kinds of giddy. Never mind the droid isn't chrome, this looks good enough to warrant a LEGOfied version.

Don: After making a chrome R2, the TLG should make a chrome WALL-E. ;)

Anyway, I like chrome Vader better. I love how he looks in Collin's picture.

I would have picked C-3PO, but there was a lego contest a while ago were you could win a 14k 3PO figure (which is like a chrome one).

i'm really surprised that threepio is winning this poll (as of the timestamp on this post). i thought for sure vader would be winning.

How did you all be so lucky and find these chrome figs?
Or did anyone of you pay the ridiculous Bricklink price?

i think some people are voting just based on pictures they've seen or conceptually what they think makes more sense as a chrome figure.

Same here, Vader looks far cooler.

The poll question wasn't "Who's cooler?" but rather "Who do you like better?"

So, me, even though I think a Chrome Vader minifig is pretty cool, I think the C-3PO one is more of a logical choice to be chromed, hence why I voted for it. And you gotta admit that all that shiny gold gives it a really classy look! :D
