God bless the good folks over at Sideshow. They are some talented people and these figures really good-- and I always love Sideshow's armored/robotic 1/6 scale figures. They've got some funny and beautifully shot photos showing off their new Battle Droid figures here, but the problem for me is that the figures have to be funny.
Those damned Battle Droids were the most worthless, stupid, pathetic "enemies" any heroes have ever faced. They were little more than comedic fodder and just fell apart at even the slightest touch.
So, the fact that Sideshow has shown these figures in such a comedic way only serves to point out how terrible the prequels were and, more so, how worthless a part the Battle Droids played.
The pair will be shipping in March, but you can pre-order them now for $129.99 over on Sideshow's Site.
