Episode 2 - Geonosis - Arena Battle (Coming Soon)
Final Thoughts: A pleaseant surprise. First reaction... "Oh No, Another Droidika" but when you see him up close he looks a LOT better then the Episode 1 Sculpt. His Head is much more accurate in Color and in Shape. The Eyes if you will, are just in the right position. His Torso is a little Oversized to accomadate the "Action" feature we all LOVE so much ;P However for this figure, it actually plays well and logically since it recreates the Swinging Arm actions of the Movie counterpart. This isn't Unatural Arm Pumping action like SOME figures. Cough - Anakin - Cough. LOL. Hasbro even kept the "Knee" Articulation of the Episode 1 Variants. The ONLY Downside to this figure are the BIG FAT extensions under each Arm to accomodate the insertion of "Laser Bolts" YUK. It's a matter of time until some kid somewhere will poke his eye out. Maybe then, we won't have PooPoo features like this for the 2004 lineup. NO MORE ACTION FEATURES!!! If you have a Xacto Knife handy, Slice them off and get a Perfect Arena Destroyer Droid for your Diorama and mail the scrap to Hasbro - hee hee.
