We got these in... maybe a month ago? Pretty unremarkable as far as new stuff goes. Hopefully they'll be good for kids, because I wasn't able to squint and find a good reason to open a set yet.
Lucas seems to feel the comics and basically anything outside the current CW series is useless to him
It's really great to see the deluxes getting a little more love and not continuing their [sic] existence as a bunch of repacks.
Still, what if there's nothing you want? That makes it even worse really.
It's a long drought on new things for some time it seems... at least as Legacy goes.
This looks OK, but I think that they should have made a cockpit for a Battle Droid. I know that that isn't accurate, but by making the ship interact with a figure, it enhances the playability. These things should function as toys first.
I get your point Mike, and in general I agree, but I think two things kind of work against this one...
First, it's not really got a compartment big enough for a figure... At least if we're comparing it (assuming here) to the current droid vulture fighter anyway. I'm guessing the body is about the same thickness between the two, and the "heads" are the same size, which leaves little to no room for a battledroid to sit anywhere.
The other thing is they go out of their way designing these to transform nicely and be poseable too, so I think that nixes the real need for the cockpit feature. I mean, as a kid, I think I'd like the big assed transformed droid better really.
Nothing against cockpits (if they're hidden like on the snail tank) or anything, I agree with the sentiment they add something, but on the droid fighter they'd have to compromise the sculpt to make it thick enough, and possibly the pull-out head for the droid's walking feature as well.
