Maybe someday we'll get an Evolutions set for the Battle Droid,  Cream / Red / Camo


**** that's a good idea.

I like the idea in general but as Brad just pointed out, in practice the implementation is flawed. You can see from the posted pic that one of the Battle Droids has his right leg already bending to the side and starting a lean. If Hasbro is going to use old sculpts for Battle Droids, why can't they go back to the Episode 1 sculpt?!?! Sure it's not as accurate as other sculpts, but the sculpt requires a harder plastic which in turn prevents the warping of limbs. For ***** SAKE Hasbro, get it through your thick ****** skulls and use better plastic!!!!!

For the sake of argument, I would rather have a better sculpt and use Real Stands.   ;)

I agree with Chewie on this one. It would be nice to have the better Battle Droid sculpt in harded plastic, but not at the sake of the sculpt going back to the E1 version.

Yes you are.  I think it is pretty clear we all think it is crap.  I guess that makes you as special as the figure itself. ;D
You are never alone when there's a clone.

I'll be getting some of these 2-packs. No a bad deal for 2 Battle Droids even at the avage $7 price of the TSC line. If you don't like the color, you can always just repaint them IMO.

Yes you are, as well as the only one who is PASSING on the Kashyyyk clone, Galactic Marine, and Parjai Trooper, as well as the only one who has the Naboo Hangar janitor in the top 5 army building figures of all time.

It must be a cold, cruel, isolated world where you are right now, my friend.  Come join the rest of us.  Ditch the droid, pick up the clones.

The other thing is the clones need somthing to shoot. They can't shoot themselves, right? I think it is a good call on Hasbro's part with the Battle Droid and a 2-pack no less.

I wonder if you can Goo Off the camo.  Probably not.  But a 2-pack is still nice and cheap so maybe I can paint them Arena Red or just traditional beige.

There you go, now you have the idea ;D. Come over to the Dark Side.

Well I don't really like the SBD or BD from the PT.  So, it's a pass for me regardless of the repaint.

No, I'll be joining you. I'm getting the Clones too, but they need some damn droids to fight.
