This Mustafar Panning Droid action figure was released in
2008 in The Anniversary Collection.
Hasbro gave the figure eight joints and included
three accessories (2-piece floating mustafar base, lava bucket, stand).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the Droid:
- The Mustafar Panning Droid was released individually carded
- With the purchase of this figure, it was possible to recreate the duel between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader while they were floating on the lava
- The base included with the Panning Droid can hold Obi-Wan Kenobi
- The Panning Droid itself is a repulsor lift platform and can hold Anakin Skywalker
- The "floating base" consists of two parts, the lava and the actual base, both plug together nicely
- There are two holes in the base where the Panning Droid's legs/arms can be plugged in (this is great because now the droid can be displayed without falling over!)
- The Panning Droid doesn't have any hidden panels or removable gadgets built in
- If you want to recreate the duel between Obi-Wan and Vader while on the lava, then this is a great figure to get, because you get the droid where Vader stood on, plus the extra base for Obi-Wan!
The articulation details are as follows: 4 swivel arms, 4 swivel elbows
Obi-Wan and Anakin engage in their penultimate battle on Mustafar. During the lightsaber duel, they must quickly avoid falling into the burning lava when the collection arms collapse. Obi-Wan jumps onto a replusorlift platform, while Anakin leaps onto a panning droid.
