The 2009 Legacy Collection continues to provide us with a diverse array of characters from across the entire Star Wars saga. For those collectors that favor a certain film, it absolutely makes us all wait in anticipation until another of the same themed wave re-enters the line in succession. But the theme-specific waves effectively gives all “non-one-of-everything” collectors a fair chance until their favorite film or EU source is revisited and gets more love. And then it is just pure gravy when the wave contains a figure (or two) and checks off another “wished-for” character from a list and aids in completing a fan-favorite scene in the film. And lastly it is just a pure bonus when that wave is based off of a film in the Original Trilogy (especially A New Hope). Of course this is our own opinion here, but we tend to feel extra special when waves are based on the classic movies, especially the original film. Hasbro delivers some sweet affection with the manifestation of the A New Hope wave of the red phase Legacy Collection (wave 3). We are of the belief that you are (or will be) equally excited about these figures too. The wave is a great hybrid of characters from all over the film and they have been all done very well. Slowly but surely helping us to complete the beloved “purchase of the droids” scene, Hasbro delivers another new droid and a “half” new Jawa to us while continuing to revitalize the basic figure line. Well, consider the line revitalized. The Jawa & Security Droid are a lovely addition to your collections and while we have a mild case of 'contempt' for the Jawa (don't worry, we are half kidding here), the Security Droid, 2X-KPR (also known as "Tooex") to be exact, is quite an amazing little “accessory” (though we consider it the second figure in the two-pack). Packed with incredible detail and very good paint operations, this set is certainly going to be popular among collectors and we suspect quite a few kids too. But we still feel that some of the parts of the set may leave you wanting more.
As has been the pattern for a few years now, another A New Hope wave typically means another new Jawa. By default, another new Jawa means a two-pack (which may include a new second Jawa or a completely new droid). We get the later and it is overall a very good set. While two-packs are becoming less and less prevalent in the basic figure line, we personally feel very fortunate for any instance where Hasbro decides NOT to nix the second figure (and instead include it). This round gives us the Jawa & Security Droid, a wonderful duo for the most part, although we think the Security Droid has a funny name so being such a tiny little droid probably no bigger than a mouse droid. How will this little droid protect [anything] since almost everything is bigger than it? We assume that maybe this droid serves as a fancy alarm rather than a bad news battle droid (obviously). But we do know that despite its small and petite size, the Security Droid is actually a fantastic addition to this two-pack and to the action figure line. The droid has a green “dome” similar to an R2 unit (but on a much smaller scale) and a black center “body” with silver details and these parts sit atop an orangey bronze “plate”. While unable to be separated, these 'parts' fit via a plug into a gray square piece on wheels that looks a lot like what you would see on a standard Treadwell droid. The droid looks to be in perfect scale with the Jawa and we even dug out our R1-G4 action figure (from 2004’s SW line) and the two look perfect next to each other. We commend Hasbro on a job very well done! All of our previous droids are aging gracefully over the years (there are a few exceptions) and it is comforting to know that they are rarely becoming outdated. The Security Droid delivers extremely simple articulation (the twisting of its body) and comes with wheels that work quite effectively on multiple surfaces and adds simple but powerful mobility to the droid. The Security Droid is clearly the gem in this set and the main reason to purchase another Jawa that you may not want (even if you are a Jawa fan).
