I gotta disagree.
If hasbro has proven they CAN do it right, they should do it right... Not to dredge up old debate, but case-in-point... the Fleet Trooper. His helmet's stuck to his head, yet it's a separate mold. Make it removable and make people happy and keep a "standard" going... That's one of many problems I find with that figure, but on the droid it's just a matter of using GOOD plastic on its legs.
E1 basic droids stood fine... Then OOM-9 came and he toppled and our BD's have toppled ever since. Why? It's unnecessary, especially on a figure they've made their $$$ back on now 10 fold.
Stands are greaty, but if I already paid $5+ for a figure it should stand fine without stands... I don't feel it's my obligation to invest even more in a job Hasbro should've done right the first time. That's not very fair as I see it from the consumer standpoint. Hopefully we'll see improved droids in the future, even if it's the same sculpt (fine by me), and preferably in a nice 3-pack to build a good army with.
Hell, my 3-pack break-away droid from the Clone Wars line stands better than any droid post E1. Use THAT plastic even!
