Weird KBToys droid
« on: October 18, 2005, 03:53 PM »
I was at the kbtoys web site. Their star wars banner shows a picture of a protocol droid I've never seen before. Does anyone know who this is?

Holy crap.   :o

I'm surprised that anyone knew it, let alone two guys who new exactly what it was so quickly.

Bravo!

Yep, that would be sweet!

In fact, I wish they'd do a bunch of "concept figures". Maybe some two-packs with a concept version and the final version.
