No knee articulation = no buy. Plus, wasn't the old SL SBD the TAC one? Why the step backwards? Because of the big gun? Should've found a way to slam that gun arm onto the better articulated one. Now THAT I would've bought.

Yes, it's a big leap backwards. They won't even get army builders to buy these. I wouldn't pay $3 for one, let alone $8.

Trying to make realistic TCW heavy SBD? So why not using SL sculpt. One time, I though: TVC's ending, however, I think they'll follow the try for perfect (at last articulation). Unfortunately, I was wrong.

Ah, but you forget: there's an even BETTER-articulated SBD.

From the 2nd batch of Geonosis Arena Showdown 2-packs at Target, packed with Obi-Wan (still not in the Photo Archives that I can see). They FINALLY gave the TAC SBD some BH ankles!!!!!

...and then turned around and released the no-ankle version on the Vintage card, with the BAD YVH-1's blaster pistol.

So, take the Wave 2 Arena Showdown SBD, figure out a way to swap between the regular arm and the rocket-firing arm, include BOTH arms, and repack THAT one to death in Movie Heroes.

Just got mine
Star Wars Movie Heroes Super Battle Droid

he has almost NO articulation, which would be fine if he wasn't posed dynamically...sigh. HATE Dynamic poses...but he does have switch-able arms
