Over 100 color photographs, movie stills, and previously unpublished conceptual sketches -- plus a comprehensive list of C-3PO collectible merchandise -- make this the ultimate in-depth look at everyone's favorite harried, reluctantly heroic droid. This deluxe illustrated history recounts the story of C-3PO, including Episode I of the prequel and the classic Star Wars trilogy. Reflections by George Lucas, artist Ralph McQuarrie, and other members of the Star Wars creative team reveal behind-the-scenes details of Threepio's creation. From the outset, it was clear that C-3PO was no ordinary droid. Alternatively smug, compassionate, terrified, and stoic Threepiohas won over movie audiences with his mincing steps, short temper, and dismal outlook. "We're doomed," he moans at the most harrowing moments and yet, despite his eternal pessimism and cold feet, he seems constantly caught up in the action -- berating, cajoling, and pleading his way out of danger. You can always count on him -- once out of harm's way -- to claim he knew all along that everything would turn out fine.
