What really struck me is how the heat from my fingers made the once-black droid look like the paint was dripping off of it. Parts of it looked like it was soaked in oil or covered in sludge, too. The gradual and random patina my hands put on this figure is positively stunning, giving fans a sort of "damage" or "worn look" that's unique every time you play with it. I am not unimpressed here - this could've been $20 and while you would likely have turned your nose up at it, it is 100% worth it. The contrast is so great that you can't ignore what a dramatic transition takes place between the "cold" and "hot" elements.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from my pal Shannon. Thanks Shannon! There are 2 droid 4-packs and 1 droid playset with a Gonk Droid at this time. "Warm" colors on the droids are their movie-like state. "Cold" colors tend to be a lot stranger.
