Courageous Jedi Knights and brave clone troopers go into combat against battle droids during the Clone Wars. The two sides face each other in harrowing battles that will decide the fate of the galaxy for generations to come. Jedi and clone troopers stand shoulder to shoulder as the massive battle droid army advances... and the battle continues.

This might be the worst exclusive Two-Packs set of all in The Clone Wars [Blue] line. Why is Hasbro intent on re-releasing the same half-dozen figures until it kills their exclusive program? The Two-Packs line doesn’t offer that much of a reduction in price-per-figure as the Walmart exclusive Commemorative DVD Collection sets do either. Because of this, it’s hard to consider the Obi-Wan Kenobi Vs. Battle Droid Two-Packs set worthy of hard-earned money. Besides, the figures are redundant to your collection as well. Hasbro decided that straight repacks are the best option for the Two-Packs assortment. But they could not be more incorrect about this. When Hasbro releases these figures previously available in other formats, collectors lose interest, and the store exclusives sit on shelves in anticipation of clearance. If you own the basic figure releases of Obi-Wan Kenobi and the Battle Droid, there is almost no reason at all to purchase this Toys R Us exclusive Two-Packs set at all.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is a straight repack of 2008’s TCW [B] Obi-Wan Kenobi (No. 2) figure. Hasbro gave the figure a great paint job, and the details look fantastic. But the figure is limited in articulation. Back when The Clone Wars action figure line was first announced and shown, collectors were initially disappointed to find out that Hasbro decided on a hybrid animated/realistic approach for the action figures. But once they released the figures, collectors quickly embraced them. Obi-Wan Kenobi comes with 14 points of articulation. And the rest of his Jedi gear/accessories are flawlessly replicated from The Clone Wars film and television series. Some of the accessories included here are screen-inaccurate to The Clone Wars television show, and the figure comes with an interchangeable portrait which is always a nice thing for Hasbro to include with their action figures. But again, the figure’s articulation needs work as this figure cannot achieve any usable lower body movement.

The Battle Droid is a decent animated version of the droid that has been a staple in the Prequel Trilogy. But the figure impressed some and was dismissed by others. The Battle Droid has turned out pleasantly well as far as we’re concerned. Its biggest issue is it's misshapen when taken out of the package. This was true of the basic figure too. The figure also comes with limited articulation in the legs, which makes it a bit frustrating when trying to stand it up. The figure is molded in a medium soft plastic, and his pliability doesn't help things out much either. But if you can overlook this issue, there's no denying the Battle Droid is a pretty sweet design. The figure comes adequately accessorized. Where the figure does shine is in its paint job. Weathered beautifully and strewn with lots of battle-damage markings, the Battle Droid will impress you. In all honesty, this set is a complete waste of time and energy. Hasbro didn’t need to release this Two-Packs set for any reason.
