I would nudge you to the basic figure first - be it the 2013 orange box version or its 2017 40th Anniversary reissue - because of the lightsaber and scope accessories. This one has places for those attachments, but you'll need to steal them from other droid figures. The opening panels on the dome are still present, the third leg still rotates down, but this time it has dirt deco on it! That's a real unusual thing in Hasbro's droid toys. The wheels on the heels are still present, as are the pop-off blue panels for the arm rockets (which are not included.)
Collector's Notes: I got mine from my pal Shannon who went to Disneyland's Galaxy's Edge last month.
