The Force Awakens The Black Series 6-Inch Figure
Item No.: Asst. B3834 No. E4085
Includes: Rifle, backpack, antenna pack
Action Feature: n/a
Availability: March 2019
Appearances: The Phantom Menace
Bio: Rather than use flesh-and-blood warriors, the Separatists prefer mindlessly loyal soldiers that are easily controlled. Battle droids are dim-witted and no match for clone troopers or Jedi, but they weren't designed to be smart - they were designed to overwhelm Republic civilians through sheer numbers, something they do very effectively. (Taken from the figure's packaging.)

I often roll my eyes at the 6-inch line and vintage line because there's not a lot of room to surprise anyone - the same basic cuts and joints are upgraded with a new joint every few years, or some new paint technique. Lather, rinse, repeat. Only though weird droids or unusual body designs do we get anything truly interesting, and given the problems many of these spindly droids had in the smaller scale I was most definitely interested to see what Hasbro would do with these guys.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
