Compare this Destroyer Droid figure
This Droideka was released in a Target exclusive 2-pack in Fall 2010 together with Anakin Skywalker. The set was part of the Geonosis Arena Showdown series - which started in 2009 during The Legacy Collection - and by Fall of 2010 consisted of twelve 2-packs totaling 24 figures. The figure is based on the appearance of Destroyer Droids during the conflict in the Geonosis arena seen in Attack Of The Clones.
The figure is a re-release - but repaint of the 1999 Destroyer Droid from the Episode 1 toy line. It even still features the 1998 copyright on the back of the figure. Despite its age - the figure holds up remarkably well with modern figures and still fits right in. The figure has eleven joints - including a swivel neck - 2 swivel shoulders - 2 swivel elbows - 3 swivel legs and 3 swivel knee joints. The 3-legged position balances the figure out very well. The only accessories included were two red blast-effects - which can be attached to the front of each laser cannon. They add some weight to the front of the figure - but work overall OK.
The paint application on the Droideka feels a little simple without any kind of "Geonosis" dirt on the legs. However - it's cleanly painted and looks slightly - but noticeably different from the Geonosis Droideka from the same series - which was released together with Master Yoda. The Droideka is an overall good figure - but there is nothing really ne - which would make you raise your eyebrows.
The Jedi Knights rush to Geonosis to rescue Obi-Wan - Anakin and Padme from execution. The Jedi brandish their lightsabers against the Geonosian warriors and the massive army of battle droids - super battle droids and droidekas. All hope seems lost that any Jedi will survive this battle - then Yoda arrives with an army of clone troopers. Although many Jedi are lost that day - others survive this climatic battle that ushers in the Clone Wars.
