Star Wars was released May 25th, 1977. Thirty Five freakin' years ago. In order to honor 35 years of backyard lightsaber battles, making out with your sister and pretending you are a wookie, Lucas Film is celebrating with a pure gold version of everyone's favorite android know-it-all... C-3PO. There will only be 35 of these figures made and will set you back a cool $6,000 space bucks to snag one.
Read on to see closeups and if you are a cheapskate, there is a sterling silver R2D2 ($1,800) up for sale as well.
