The only additional benefit, and it's a slim one, is he's in ROTS as well in that uniform...  It's a figure I'd actually like in general, and I really think Lucas underutilized the Panaka/Typho characters.  Mostly Typho though...  Episode 1 he did a lot wrong with a variety of characters.

But anyway, I always though Typho going to Mustafar (insisting he did so or whatever), and Anakin outright choking the **** out of him when he ran to Padme's aid or something...  That would've kicked ass.  Or like him force tossing him off a wall and breaking his neck.  Something vicious, ya know?

Anyway, yeah it's a tough figure to pimp but I'd buy it.  If I'd buy a Neimoidian "Commander" I'd buy this.

like force pushing him into lava? then lifting him out then dumping him back in?

I tought Typho should have gone to Mustafar too, and gotten killed by Vader rather quickly.  Would have been awesome to see him shoot at Vader and for him to deflect it and then choke him to death.  Even moreso if 3PO witnessed some of this.   :)

It wouldn't be right without a definitive decapitation.

One figure from the AOTC wave has been confirmed!

From, http://www.thejawa.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=6397.0

1. Is the Destroyer Droid with shield being released later this year going to be a new sculpt?

HASBRO: It is a modified version of the destroyer that launched projectiles. We have deleted the launchers and swapped heads to a better head than the one it originally came with. Each will come with half of a full shield (due to package fit). If you buy 2, each half of the shield will attach to entirely enclose the droid.

I am not too crazy on the idea of having to buy 2 to get the whole shield.

I don't like the notion of having to buy a second one of these just to complete one. If they can make up a way to put that moisture vaporator into a card back, they can double up on the bubble.

Yeah, I would assume that, being sorta half-sphere-like, they could nest one inside the other.  So I would think if one fits in the package, two could fit as well.  I guess it depends on the acutal shape of them, but it still seems strange to me.

Man, this is the year for half-pack-ins... half a drum for Umpass-Stay, but if you buy two (or as some think, the half-drum will appear with Ak-rev soon) .  ::) Is it for certain we're getting a full moisture vaporator?? *sarcasm on full!*

It's about what I figured.  Having said that, it's a little lame you have to buy two.  But it's nice to know they're modifying the figure a little.  Those launchers suck.

Although I'm glad that the launchers are (finally) going the way of the dodo, I still wish they would go back to the vastly superior Episode I Droideka body.  That one actually sat correctly on its legs and had a poseable spine, not to mention no stupid lever on the back to make the arms swing uncontrollably.  Just do a new "head" for the Episode I version, repaint it, and you've got an "Ultimate" (albeit non-transformable) Droideka.

I don't see why everyone wants a transformable droideka, it'd suck. The only way a ball droideka would work was if it was that way for ever, like the CW figure.
