Compare this Battle Droid figure
This Battle Droid was released in a 2-pack during the Clone Wars Collection as a Target exclusive in February/March 2011. The figure was packed-in together with ARF Trooper Waxer and is based on the Weapons Factory episode from the second season of The Clone Wars.
The figure is a repaint of the very first Battle Droid released in the Clone Wars Collection in 2008. This means the figure has a total of eight joints - including a ball-jointed neck - 2 ball-jointed shoulders - 2 swivel elbows - a swivel waist and two swivel legs. The knees and ankles are not articulated - and the droid can't be placed in a "sleeping" position. The droid stands quite shaky overall and will require the included stand for more balance. The included basic Battle Droid blaster is a decent fit for both hands - and the included backpack can be plugged into the figure's back very well.
The paint job on the droid is cleanly applied - but feels very simple with only red and yellow colors. Unfortunately - there is no dirt or any battle markings on the droid to make it more interesting - and the red feels too light compared with the Battle Droids seen in the Weapons Factory episode. Aesthetically - the Battle Droid looks nice - but with so many Clone Wars figures having 14 points of articulation - it feels as if there is quite a bit of room left for improvement.
Clone troopers fight battle droids to destroy a Separatist weapons factory. ARF Trooper Waxer scouts ahead to gather information about the enemy. He runs into a squad of battle droids - and stops these robotic warriors before they reveal his position.
