Excellent - I remembered the scene, but didn't know if more detailed photos existed. I say we call for a Beru/Power Droid resculpt 2-pack.

Just found another one:

I never had the vintage version as a kid, but found it a little boring back then.  Like others, I do like the commtech one pretty well (the leg "feature" is sort of a pain to get them to stand though), but I'd like to see a new/redeco of the vintagey blue one as well.

I think we've found the thing to push Hasbro on now that they did ICMG.  :-X

Said before and I'll say it again, LOVE these topics.  The Power Droid was easily the biggest "WTF?" figure in the line.

As a kid, I totally remember looking at the back of the card (the way we received our new figure info back then) and seeing this guy for the first time.  I literally had no idea what to make of him.  Was it a figure, a piece of furniture, was it a misprint, just...what? 

As it stands, it will always have that charm associated with it.

I would LOVE, and think we will eventually get, a "Lars Pit" repaint or redo of this guy.  While I really like the Power Droid/Jawa pack in, it's still isn't the WTF Droid I know and love.

Keep these topics coming, and now it's on to Fett - which should be VERY interesting.
