This K-3PO was released as part of the "Recon Patrol On Hoth" battle pack during The Legacy Collection in 2008. The set included K-3PO - Hoth Han Solo - astromech droid R5-M2 - Chewbacca and a probe droid. K-3PO can be seen in the command center in Echo Base in The Empire Strikes Back.
The droid has a total of 8 joints - with the neck - shoulders - legs and knees being swivel-jointed. The only ball-joint used in the droid is in the waist. The elbows - wrists and ankles are not articulated. Despite the lack of ankle joints - and the lack of ball-joints in the knees - the figure stand quite well on its own without the help of a stand. There were no accessories or weapons included with the droid.
The paint application on K-3PO is bright white and glossy - which looks quite different compared to either the 2000 POTJ K-3PO and the 2010 K-3PO. Unfortunately - the joints in the hip - together with the knee joints are painted yellow - which looks strange. Another detail which isn't very pleasing - are the visible screws on the inside of both thighs - plus the pins in the knees. All in all - this K-3PO makes for a nice background character in a Hoth inspired display - but if you are looking for a better articulated and aesthetically better looking version of this droid - you probably want to add the Shadow Of The Dark Side K-3PO to your collection instead of this one.
This protocol droid provides the Rebels with information on military tactics that he learned from his former owner Commander Narra.
