The Droideka is awesome. I never saw the 30AC version so this is my first time playing with displaying it. Kinda sad that the sculpt from 1999 blows away the gimmick missile launcher one we always get stuck with.

Against my better judgement I went looking... Spent nearly 4 hours going to 5 Walmarts, and found 3 figures.  Total waste of a day.

If anyone stumbles across Aurra Sing, the Droid, and Mawhonic all in one shot, I'd love to take them off your hands.

Do you really want them on the Maul card? If not, Aurra and Mawhonic will be release in the Vintage line later.

Nope, I'm opening them.  I didn't realize they were going wide-release later.  That doesn't apply to the Droid?

No, Ric and G8 are the only ones that won't be making a reappearance down the road.

And we'll probably see the down the road too. 

I picked up Ric, Naboo Pilot, Aurra and the Gungan.  I might get one or two more Gungans if I see them.

I'm also looking for Ric, the Naboo pilot dude and the R5 droid if anyone wouldn't mind shipping them loose up to Canada. Walmart Canada passed on all the exclusives so I'm pretty much out of luck there.

I forgot to mention the Aurra Sing figure is much improved over the POTJ version....better likeness and better pose.

Jesse will be happy with this figure due to the accessories.  Long rifel, two blasters (with holsters) and the suitcase full of massage wands lightsabers.   :D

Great, thanks. 

If anyone runs into an extra of the droid and wouldn't mind sending it my way, I'd love you forever.

I can just wait it out on the other two.

I wish I had seen this before I went out this morning.  I saw a lone G8 droid on the pegs.

I just picked one up for Foster no worries.

I'm not sure if you meant it that way Diddly but the Droideka in DTF is the 2007 figure, not the 1999 figure...

I hate the shield, honestly, even if it got a better color to it...  I hate that texturing on it.  A smooth bubble would've been great since it really would make it much easier to see through with a proper very light purple hue to it.

You're both right on this one.  The DTF figure is the 2007 figure with a slightly different paint job, but the 2007 figure was the 1999 figure with a new "head" piece that had the extended sensors instead of a complete curve (I think they may have just used the same head from the 2005 ROTS version with the launching missiles, but I'm not too sure about that, as I don't have the action-feature impaired version).  That said, the Droideka (1999, 2007, or 2012) continues to be one of the better figures of all time, IMHO.  Back in the day of 5 dollar figures and TRU's B2GO sales, I army built the crap out of the the 2007 Droidekas.  That said, I have WAY too many blue shield balls hanging around (har har). :)

Are you sure on that Doc P?  I thought the bodies were different between the two and that the 2007 figure was all new?
