While details have still yet to pop up we know Hasbro has plans to bring the build a droits part to retail with figures once again. Is everyone happy that the Droid parts will be back or just more frustration trying to complete sets?
I think it could work. The new Power Droid in the Special Action Fig sets has---what?---4 parts (with the top piece able to open up) and could be inserted into 4 different figures' cards while taking the same pieces and adding them onto 2 other figures along the way. Power droids are desirable, so this wouldn't necessarily hurt Hasbro's ability to get consumers to make multiple purchases even if they had to spread the same 4 parts over, say, 6 different figs. wasn't this done with one of the HK BAD's in one of the later Legacy lines?-I don't think the power droid would work, but they do need to do more than just astromechs. I wonder if this line will include that red Federation droid that was canceled from Legacy.
Agreeing on all points with you there, especially the PK Droid being a good choice for BAD.I'm thinking we'll see the Vintage Battle Droid mold used for BAD. Hopefully for Geonosis, Commander, Security, and Pilot.
This has to be why they included the Commander Droid antennas with the vintage Battle Droid.
The PK Droid would be a good BAD as well.
They could do him. Am I the only one who'd like to see a proper ESB C3PO with torn wires and cargo net?I hope we see a C-3PO BAD because that's the best protocol droid sculpt out there.
Indeed, but we're already buying whole cases with PT crap, so we might as well get a free droid with them, right?This is going to be a massive pain in the behind for OT only collectors.....
Yes, they certainly used those bubbles / cardbacks to give us some larger accessories with some figures, as well as 2-packs - it would be great to see a return to that. I do however think Hasbro will cut back when and where they can, so we shouldnt get our hopes up too high.Yep, I liked the BAD line too. AS a loose collector it was great to get an additional figure after getting a wave. Hopeflly this will mean some big accessories again.
I am excited for the return of the BAD. Best pack in ever in my opinion. Here is what I think they could do/what I would like them to do
8D8-easy since they have most of the parts already.
BG-J38-give us a second shot.wider distribution this time
For long shots I would go with
R1 Unit-Mos Eisley
TT-8L-Jabba's Palace entry droid
Well YOU have one, but plenty of us are still lacking our favorite assassin droid. A second chance at him would be great, kinda like how HK-50 was given a second chance. I guess I should throw BG-J38 up on that list as well.Well I got an HK already, but I really like the idea of the other three. Sounds good to me
The only chance I see that of happening is if they new another round of those Walmart-exclusive two-packs. The Darktrooper pieces seem far too big for the single card figures and I assume a Purge Trooper would be of similar size.Maybe we'll get another crack at the Dark Trooper Build a Droid, or even a purge trooper!
Frustration trying to complete droids was why I didn't worry one bit about collecting them to get a droid, though I thought it was a neat idea. I was still able to get a couple of astromechs out of it, even if some of the pieces weren't technically the correct colour or whatever. Perfectly fine for the beat-up universe look I thought.While details have still yet to pop up we know Hasbro has plans to bring the build a droits part to retail with figures once again.
