I got the panning droid today and I'm having a blast with him!
He's a really fun little guy. I like his coloration/deco and all his little arms. This is stellar accessory set as display stands for Anakin and Obi-Wan, but the droid himself is a neat figure, too. I'm definitely getting a second to set beside the Mustafar playset's lava pool, to mine ore with the miner guy. I love how all 4 of the pieces, the droid, bucket, platform and lava all interact. I dug out Mustafar and spent much of the evening trying out all the possibilities.
LOL I had forgotten the legs attach to the lava, and just a minute ago tried out that set-up on my desk. I actually managed to get A & O into a pretty decent fighting pose right on top of it:
I have a question for those who bought the '08 Anakin: Is the torso exactly the same as the original Evo? Is his windpipe still so bloody big it limits the posability of the head??
