Title: Weird KBToys droid
Post by: Master_Phruby 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!

That concept is pretty cool wish they made an action figure of that..

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.
