FX-7 (Medical Droid)

General Analysis

FX-7 (Medical Droid) was a favorite Star Wars figure for my brother and me. We both hadn’t seen the film at the time we had the figure, and we used to do the operations of various Star Wars figures not genuinely knowing what role this character had in the movie. I remember liking the telescoping head feature and the nine hinge-jointed arms which ultimately were used for medical use. But I remember over time that the telescoping head feature became worn and lost the ability to stay in the “up” position, unfortunately. 2-1B, the actual surgeon, would come in the fourth series of the Kenner line, but we still had fun with FX-7 (Medical Droid) and utilized him like this character did the heavy medical lifting. Hasbro would eventually make a definitive version right out of the gate in 2001’s POWER OF THE JEDI line, and although they repainted the figure for THE VINTAGE COLLECTION, it remains perfect to date. Hasbro only needs to slap the figure on a vintage Kenner card back and call it a day. I hope that’s not too far away for us. We have been waiting a long time for this to happen.
