Compare this Battle Droid figure
This Battle Droid was released in a 2-pack during the Clone Wars Collection as a Target exclusive in February/March 2011. The figure was packed-in together with ARF Trooper Waxer and is based on the Weapons Factory episode from the second season of The Clone Wars.
The figure is a repaint of the very first Battle Droid released in the Clone Wars Collection in 2008. This means the figure has a total of eight joints- including a ball-jointed neck- 2 ball-jointed shoulders- 2 swivel elbows- a swivel waist and two swivel legs. The knees and ankles are not articulated- and the droid can't be placed in a "sleeping" position. The droid stands quite shaky overall and will require the included stand for more balance. The included basic Battle Droid blaster is a decent fit for both hands- and the included backpack can be plugged into the figure's back very well.
The paint job on the droid is cleanly applied- but feels very simple with only red and yellow colors. Unfortunately- there is no dirt or any battle markings on the droid to make it more interesting- and the red feels too light compared with the Battle Droids seen in the Weapons Factory episode. Aesthetically- the Battle Droid looks nice- but with so many Clone Wars figures having 14 points of articulation- it feels as if there is quite a bit of room left for improvement.
Clone troopers fight battle droids to destroy a Separatist weapons factory. ARF Trooper Waxer scouts
ahead to gather information about the enemy. He runs into a squad of battle droids- and stops these robotic
warriors before they reveal his position.
