I love the Battle Droids, and am happy to have a new variant to add to the shelf! The paint on this looks pretty nice.

Including a DLT-19 with a battle droid seems weird, but I know Battlefront does cross-era weapons. Can the figure even hold it?

The rocket battle droids these ones stole the paint scheme of would have been more interesting, but that would have required new tooling.

Purchased a few of these, but not as many as the others from this wave.

This is the one my 6 year is most excited for. He gets a real kick out of the Battle Droids from Clone Wars and especially when he watches me play Battlefront II.

So we got the TPM Battle Droid reissue and now this repaint, so a third release overall.

And yet the animated Clone Wars version from a decade ago is still superior with the ball joint shoulder that lets you hold the rifle with two hands.

This is an instance where a re-sculpt would have been great, and I would have bought a bunch if they did.

So this is my first time EVER owning and buying a battle droid. All the others I have seen I personally think are silly and hideous. When I saw this one, I thought the figure and card back are very catchy and cool looking so I changed my mind and bought it.

^ the card art is definitely cool. And the figure looks good.

But like the Stormtrooper this is an entire trilogy's main army builder. I feel like it needs pimped out on articulation. Right now he can't even strike his signature movie pose.
