3B6 was an golden RA-7 series protocol droid that traveled to the dessert planet of Tatooine before being kidnapped by the native Jawas. A few weeks after his capture 3B6 met C-3PO and R2-D2, who had also been captured by the hooded creatures after crash landing on the planet in a escape pod. He would later be put up for sale with all the other droids the Jawas captured in front of Owen Lar's moisture farm, hopping to be bought by the farmer but wasn't and forced to stay inside the Jawa's Sandcrawler for the next few weeks.
