“We’re doomed!”

Well, not really, because hey, who doesn’t like C-3PO? He is “created” in Episode 1 by Anakin… and frankly looks rather weird and out of place. Sort of like Pepsi One, which is the can this character is parked on… #22 C-3PO

During the 1999 promotion, there were 4 different Pepsi One cans represented (not including bonus versions). We’ve already seen the first one, #21 Chancellor Valorum. Quite the odd combination… the head of the Republic and a protocol droid!

Here’s the official bio on this can:

C-3PO

Constructed with spare parts and odd pieces of junk, this talkative protocol droid – even in an unfinished state – is always eager to please.

The secret word found on the can was The.

The metallic finish on the Pepsi One can is actually the perfect combination for the robot appearance of C-3PO. This is one sharp looking can!

“Hello, I am C-3PO, human cyborg relations. How might I serve you a Pepsi One?”
