Star Wars: Battlefront II gathers together a galaxy of heroes, villains, droids, and vehicles for plenty of intense combat and epic battles. From the Clone Wars to the Galactic Civil Wars, Star Wars: Battlefront II gives you command of the action!

The battle heats up with a powerful squadron of droids, each with special combat skills to support their forces with ferocious firepower and technological skill!

When originally released in the 30 (77-07) line, the Previews exclusive Star Wars: Battlefront II sets were some of the most anticipated multipacks in recent memory. As much as gamers wanted action figure representations of the characters in the video game series, it was collectors that were perhaps a little more eager seeing them realized as action figures. Now it has been re-released as a Toys R Us exclusive in The Legacy Collection. Out of two separate packaged sets, the Droid Pack and the Clone Pack, Star Wars fans were treated to 13 individual action figures (seven for the Droid Pack and six for the Clone Pack) all of varying quality – some were excellent and some were, well, less than excellent. But overall most collectors were happy about them and the Clone Pack was the one that got the most attention. Instead of being sold as a set, collectors can now cherry pick the Clone Pack since you don't have to buy them together anymore. After all, everyone prefers the Clone Pack over the Droid Pack anyway. The Star Wars: Battlefront II Droid Pack does however do a fair job in picking some of the most popular characters in the video game, but we have noticed that many of the characters have exclusivity in the first Star Wars: Battlefront video game. So it reasons to believe that the name given to the Previews exclusive is slightly a misnomer.

First up is the Ammunition Droid, also called Ammo Droid. It’s simply a Power Droid with no accessories. For some reason Hasbro chose to use 2006’s TSC Power Droid (SAGA 014) figure, remove all of its parts and repaint it to become the video game's specific Ammunition Droid. This approach leaves gaping holes throughout its exterior which is a shame. But worse than that is the action feature Hasbro left in place still functions. The Ammunition Droid is very hard to stand up on two legs, but our sample managed to maintain this pose if we pressed its body all the way and let go. Hopefully Hasbro will manage to leave action features out of action figures going forward. The evidence is hard to cover up and old styles shouldn’t be used in significantly more modern lines. There are three Battle Droids in this set and they are all painted differently. Although they’re all designated simply as Battle Droids on the packaging, in the game they each have a different role. The Battle Droid with the orange markings is actually an Engineer Battle Droid, the Battle Droid with the brown camouflage markings is an Assassin Battle Droid and the Battle Droid with the red markings is an Assault Battle Droid (although this last Battle Droid receives no designation or bio on the box art). Each uses the Battle Droid sculpt from 2002’s SW [S - P1] C-3PO (Droid Factory Assembly Line) Deluxe set and as you can imagine suffer terribly as far as articulation is concerned.

The Super Battle Droid is a repaint of 2005’s ROTS Super Battle Droid (III 4) figure. It’s another figure that is severely limited in articulation but since they don’t have many sculpts under their belt, this is one option they can utilize. It’s bluish gray color is very unique and unlike anything we have ever seen in the line. Hasbro also borrows another sculpt from the Revenge Of The Sith line and makes good use out of 2005’s ROTS Grievous’s Bodyguard (III 8) figure. The cape has been removed and Hasbro gave it a droid blaster this time around, but it still has an action feature in the legs for excited battling poses. Lastly, what Separatist army would be complete without a droideka? Hasbro takes 2005’s ROTS Destroyer Droid (III 44) figure and slightly repaints it to include in this set. Its arms are annoyingly loose, but it’s a figure that is more filler fodder for this set than anything else. We’d just assume for them not to include it here. Most of the droids come with new and very large weapons. Since many of them are thin and delicate (like the Battle Droids), Hasbro has included a Star Wars: Battlefront specific action figure stand to help the droids stay upright. It was a very nice gesture and they really assist the much too soft figures to maintain their poses, at least long enough for a photo shoot. The Star Wars: Battlefront II Droid Pack is decent, but it pales in comparison to the Clone Pack. That is the set to definitely get!
