Today we revisit the 2000 Power of the Jedi Battle Droid (Security) figure. A nice looking sculpt, but as you know I am not a fan of the pre-posed figures. One positive thing is that this Battle Droid has tight leg joints and allows him to stand without any issues. This figure has 10 points of articulation which are Head, Neck, Shoulders, Elbows, Hips, and Knees. He is packed with a Blaster.
Variations: • Card Back #571100.0000 • Card Back #571100.0100 • Card Back #571100.0400

Go behind the scenes of Star Wars: Battle Pod, a new arcade shooter from Lucasfilm, Disney Interactive, and Bandai Namco, in this special video from StarWars.com.
Star Wars: Battle Pod, with an enveloping dome screen, air blasts, and rumble, redefines the Star Wars arcade experience for a new generation. The first Star Wars game ever was an arcade shooter, released in 1983, and many other Star Wars arcade games followed through the years -- Star Wars: Battle Pod hearkens back to that tradition. "We're going back to our roots, so to speak," says Lucasfilm's Matt Shell, "in developing this really exciting arcade unit." The game takes players through the original Star Wars trilogy, from the Battle of Yavin to Endor, with some surprises along the way. Combined with the cabinet's features, it's an experience that can't be replicated easily. "You can't bring an experience like that home," says associate producer Derek Williams.
The Power of the Jedi Chewbacca (Millennium Falcon Mechanic) figure was released back in 2000 and was packed on a Collection 1 card. A great looking sculpt of Chewy, but I wish Hasbro gave his left elbow articulation like they did with his right elbow. Chewbacca Has 6 points of articulation which are Shoulders, Right Elbow, Waist, and Hips. He includes RW-80 Welding Googles and a Welding Torch.
Variations: • Card Back #571090.0300 • Card Back #571090.0400 • Long Welding Torch Handle • Short Welding Torch Handle
Stopped by my local Disney Store here in Texas and the entire Star Wars Section was replenished for the first time since Christmas. Was hoping to see some of the newer Black Series figures, but all they had were the Ree-Yees Wave.
If your into the small DIE Cast vehicles, they had a pretty good deal. If you buy 2 or more they are only $7 each.
