Hot Toys Attacks The Clones With The Star Wars Battle Droid 1:6 Scale FigureJose Lopez
The Star Wars army building begins with the latest Sixth Scale figure announcement from Hot Toys: the B1 Battle Droids from Episode II: Attack of the Clones! These mindless droids served as cannon fodder for the Separatists in the Star Wars prequel and now they can serve collectors everywhere as excellent additions to the display.
Hot Toys is making their way through every must-have addition to fans’ Star Wars Prequel collections. We’ve already seen Clone Troopers and Clone Pilots on the Republic side of the Battle of Geonosis, so it makes sense we’d also get the Separatist B1 Battle Droids. Appearing as they specifically did on Geonosis, the Battle Droids look spot-on. While this release is a little bare bones, this was definitely made with army building in mind, even more so than the also just-released Clone Trooper.
As an added bonus, a C-3PO head with LED light-up feature is included, allowing for collectors to recreate the hilarious scene where the iconic droid and a B1 have a mixup with their bodies. It’s a nice touch and one that will go perfectly once fans get the matching C-3PO figure in hand as well.
The Hot Toys Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones – Battle Droid (Geonosis) Sixth Scale Figure is available for preorder now and is slated for release in Q2 – Q3, 2023.
【Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones™ – 1/6th scale Battle Droid™ (Geonosis) Collectible Figure】
Rather than use flesh-and-blood warriors, the Separatists prefer mindlessly loyal soldiers that are easily controlled. The soulless ranks of their armies are dominated by tall, thin B1 battle droids built as mechanical imitations of their Geonosian™ designers.
Celebrating the 20th anniversary of Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, Hot Toys is excited to present a series of collectibles based on this landmark film for fans!
The new 1/6th scale Battle Droid collectible figure is inspired by the droid’s appearance in the Geonosis™ arena battle. It features a newly developed mechanical structure with exceptional articulations, a blaster rifle, a pair of binoculars, a sand themed figure base, an interchangeable C-3PO™ head recreating the comical scenes when the droids were misconfigured, and a specially designed commemorative packaging!
It is now a great time to add battle droids into your Star Wars™ collection!
