    I couldn't care less about the 1,309th Jedi Starfighter repaint, but I am getting that Battle Droid-- he's cool beans. He likes big butts and he cannot lie.

    I'd like that droid if not for the fact that he looks like he's wearing a pretty blue dress in robot mode.


    Regardless, I'm not getting suckered into buying another of these turds again. SWTF are dead to me now.

    Don't know how that starfighter mold has made it this far.

    Sold on the droid though, hope these hit the shelves when the movie stuff does.

    A big fat mabye on that battle droid.

    Maybe I would buy more of these if they put more effort into them. That starfighter mold has been used over and over again.

    Kit Fisto, one of my favorite characters from SW, in one of my least favorite TF lines. :(

    I never see them on clearance. I don't like Star Wars but the Darth Vader Death Star looked pretty cool but not for 60 bucks. They are shelf warmers eating up my Animated/Universe space.

    I thought that the Powers-that-be said they wouldn't do droids because they were robots already. Glad to see that's no longer the case.

    (The other issue I remember with droids like C3P0 and R2D2 is that there's no vehicle specifically associated with them. We still need to work on that one....)

    Maybe they could make rd-d2 as a combiner type thing. He did have his little cubby hole in the back of an x-wing.

    It only took them like three years to make one of the million robot characters in SW into a transforming robot :p  (grievous semi-counts).

    It's the first figure that really makes sense, and it's awesome. The airbrushed blueish rounded parts are so Kobayashi.

    Wrong, they don't take away from Universe or Animated in terms of the planograms.


    In '07 they moved like hot cakes, riding off of the first movie's popularity, I wouldn't be surprised if the same thing happened again this summer.

    Kids love 'em. Pretty much whenever a kid sees my collection, they almost always end up fiddling with the SWTFs.
