C-3PO’s Cereal Box Masks

As a kid I was a very big fan of C-3PO’s cereal. I gobbled up the stuff during its way too short run and I collected each mask and carefully cut each one out. I then proceeded to wreck them by wearing them around the house for days on end. I might not own the masks anymore, but I can remember the magic of these Star Wars Collectibles, thanks to some wonderful uploads by the prolific Jason Liebig. He has posted not one or two, but four of the six collectible masks on his Flickr page. If you go to the largest file size, you can even print them, cut them out and eat your favorite non-droid theme cereal as your favorite Star Wars character.

I am C-3PO, Human-Cyborg Relations…and Awesome Halloween Costume!

C-3PO’s primary function as a protocol droid was to assist with etiquette, customs, and translation so that meetings of different cultures ran smoothly. What a perfect companion on Halloween night with so many potentially bungling communications between incongruous monsters, superheros, animals, pirates, ghosts, witches, zombies, and human adults! Continuing our Star Wars themed costume week, let’s check out these droids.


Sir, the possibility of successfully navigating the perfect Halloween costume is approximately 3,720 to 1. This one beats the odds. I just love this tinfoil looking outfit and moon boot style covers for the sneakers, which peek out at the bottom.

Artoo says that the chances of creating an awesome homemade costume are 725 to 1. Actually Artoo has been known to make mistakes…from time to time…this one’s nearly perfect. Click the WarPig link to read all about the making of this costume…including the gold painted skivvies.

There’s been some terrible mistake. I’m programmed for etiquette, not trick-or-treating!

What do you mean, “At least my creator wasn’t Darth Vader”? Darth, say it isn’t so! By the way, Darth, don’t kids usually wear shirts under these vinyl smocks?

Well, now, something’s not right, because now I can’t see! It must be this plastic mask.
