ROTS FX-6 or 2-1B next year?!?!?
« on: June 8, 2007, 08:15 PM »
From Galactic Hunter:

Galactic Hunter: The team at Hasbro knows that their FX-7 was a triumph of the action figure art, and we all love droids. (We know you do. There's no shame in it!) Are we likely to see an FX-6 Droid and a Revenge of the Sith style 2-1B any time soon to complement our cool Chopper Droid and Rebuild Darth Vader figures?

HASBRO: Droids do rock the world, don't they?  What would the citizens of the Galaxy do without them?  There would certainly be more lost limbs, a lot more missing starships, and a lot less protocol.  We see their place alongside the humans and aliens of the Star Wars universe, and won't forget them come time to create the balanced figure line-up. The onces you cite are definitely on the "short list" of figures that will probably be done before too long, with a strong chance of one of them coming out next year.

Id love to see these robo-quacks! Those will look great with the chopper droids. I didnt realize how different 2-1B looks in ROTS, very cool!

Okay, I'm not jumping out of my chair, but I'll pick up 1 of each if they are made.  Cool.

Nothing too exciting but i guess 2-1B could use an update. I would prefer the FX-6 droid since we have never had one before.

I have wanted an FX-6 figure since I saw it in ROTS.  I think it would be nice to round out that scene with the 2-1B droid.

What's wrong with the ROTS Chopper? Besides, it's such an obscure droid, it's not likely to receive a resculpt ever again.

Regarding the chopper droid, the legs are flimsy.  A sturdier grade of plastic would be very welcome on that.

Both of these droids would be very welcome additions.  I think that Hasbro might opt for the 2-1B droid since they could probably re-use that.  That is if that should happen to be a new 2-1B sculpt.  But I wouldn't mind seeing a ROTS version of 2-1B and a TESB version.

FX-6 would be very cool.  Especially if Hasbro stayed true to the articulation and sculpting that they put into FX-7.

It'll probably be 2-1B since he could be for this scene & ESB scenes.

21-B!
Not too into the FX-6. Of course being a Hasbro SW crack addict I would buy him still......

FX-6 just looks cool. With articulated arms everywhere, I'd be a winner for me. 2-1B, however, never even realized he was in ROTS.

Sounds good, I'd pick up both if they made them.  I've kind of been hoping for a new 2-1B and putting off picking up the POTF2 version, so I wouldn't mind seeing an ESB version of the med droid.

I think 2-1B has different arms and legs in ESB.

I like both of the droids a lot but Id actually prefer FX-6 because hes just so unique and could be done so awesomely like FX-7 was.

Even though he's got different arms, he's been called 2-1B
