Review: Battle Droid - TBS6 [L50] - Best Buy Exclusive

What reason could there be that Hasbro didn’t tweak the paint operations on this figure to create a unique Battle Droid for The Black Series [Lucasfilm 50] line? Oh well. It’s a Best Buy exclusive.. (more….)

The Vintage Collection Battle Droid (VC78), part of the “worst reissue wave ever,” was a curious release back in 2012. It’s more curious today because it’s not the best 3.75″ super-articulated Episode I Battle Droid action figure from Hasbro. The best is still from the 2011 Star Wars [Shadow of The Dark Side] Episode I Blue-ray Commemorative Edition four-pack. The figure is well-made and designed but falls short of definitive status thanks to its inhibited movement, and inability to stow the E5 blaster rifle on the backpack. Hasbro did make improvements, however, including a uniform weathered paint job. But Hasbro also employed a less rigid plastic this time, so the parts feel rubbery in places. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 76-image gallery complete with both versions (2012 and 2021) featured, comparison shots, and a breakdown of what separates the two releases in the Collector Notes. Check out this excellently updated figure in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

Hasbro, it’s time to execute Order Darth Revan (VC150) on the latest repacks for The Vintage Collection. The Battle Droid isn’t a terrible inclusion, but two of the others included made up the Great TPM 3D Debacle of 2012. Another was part of a wave that bottlenecked distribution in early 2011 (Anakin Skywalker), and lastly, a figure that’s needed an all-new sculpt since 2008 (the TIE Fighter Pilot) is perhaps the worst of the foursome. This wave is a no-win situation. Please do better. Here are some ideas: General Grievous. Rebel Trooper (Echo Base). Shae Vizla. Clone Trooper (501st Legion- the rarest TVC figures from the original run). Kit Fisto. Jango Fett. Grand Moff Tarkin. Luke Skywalker (Dagobah Landing). ARC Trooper Commander. Starkiller. Weequay. Emperor’s Royal Guard. There are SO MANY OTHERS that should have come before these four.
