One of the most famous robots in movie history, C-3PO was a little needy for our tastes. He was like the geeky friend who had no other friends, so he followed you around for company. After the Tantive IV ship goes down and R2-D2 is ordered to deliver a message Obi-Wan Kenobi, C-3 decides to tag along. He winds up serving his purpose as R2's translator, and even offers to give up some of his parts. That's pretty cool, we guess.
