Clearly the only option in Artoo.

Threepio is just annoying, which is exactly how he is supposed to be, i guess, but Artoo is much more a hero and actually does a lot of useful stuff.

R2 sucks without 3P0. 3P0 is not a great character without R2. They need to be judged as a pair. That is the only time they can be considered good...

I really think 3PO was almost made a fool of in Episode 2, which was a real shame, cos he's a great character. R2 will be great no matter what though:)

My vote goes to R2, he's just cooler, plus 3P0 can get really annoying.

who do i like better? or like r2 vs. 3po gladiator round or something (this'd be funny as #%^&!) ? I like r2 btter, he's always saving the day, always going (ala energizer bunny). 3po- he's sometimes fdunny, but he's always falling apart, whining, and doesn't save a thing.

I like both. Golden Rod is cool. :D

I like R2 alot. But like Katarn07 said they have to be together. They don't work very well with out each other. Imagine R2 without C3PO? There would be nothing funny to hear except you can understand what R2 is saying in his beeps.

Goldenrod is pretty funny as well and does have his times. I dont find him annoying at all. He is the one that always comes up with something funny to say or does something funny too. But I guess I am going to have to go with C3PO. He's the one that makes R2 what he is. He is also funny as hell but does get annoying a little but it doesn't ruin it for me.

Easy to pic mine, just look at my av <--------

They have been seperated before, mianly in ROTJ, where they seemed to act well. I think the deciding factor is

R2 has a DVD, C-3PO doesn't!!!!

:wstupid: Artoo has 3PO beat in nearly every category. Lucas prefers Artoo, and the fact that Artoo has "Beneath The Dome" out on DVD( I got my copy :p ) puts him over the edge! Besides, if you watch any of the films, how many times does Artoo save the day? Really! :D

R2 can pilot an xwing.

01-30-2003, 03:48 PM
My vote goes to R2-D2......I can only take so much 3po.

3po would get pwn3d by R2 so fast it wouldn't be funney

all R2 needs is the little arc-welder/lightning-shooter-thingy and he'd be able to dismantle 3po

mine will always be artoo he is so stubborn and kool and he does for himself and his friends he is always there to help when his friends need him

R2 because it was funny to see Yoda and R2 fight over a flashlight in one of the original movies. rotj?

$am, it was TESB, not long after Luke had done his nice three point landing.....

whilst i have no problem with homosexuality, i just don't find many heroic traits in a robot that acts like a Fairy.

umm ill go against the majority here and point out why i think 3po would win: he can hold and shoot a blaster, r2d2 cannot.

02-02-2003, 02:12 AM
Im sure artoo could have a heavy blaster installed if he wanted. :D

I'm sure he could hold one, but why bother when he has more gadgets than a Swiss Army Knife?

R2 is the greatest! Golden Rod is just way to prisy for my liking. For a small droid R2 has certainly got a lot of courage. May he never rust...

Without R2, the galaxy would be a very different place - no Leia, no Han, no Luke Skywalker - no (good) Jedi. Of course, without 3PO, all 3 of them would have gotten squashed in the trash bin in Ep IV (along with Chewie), since R2 couldn't have used the communicator to find out that they needed help.

Still, I have to go with R2 on this one. :)

Without Han and 3PO there wouldn't be more than 1 movie b/c they would have been boring with no comic relief :rhett:
