  • Comments: There’s something funny about the Death Star Droid that most collectors don’t think about when looking at it. Even though there is a similar droid in the Death Star (with a black finish), this guy was actually in the Jawas’ sandcrawler, making it more of a ‘Sandcrawler Droid’. Nonetheless, the name error caused it to have a bit more playability than it would have had, what with him secretly being a spy for the Empire and all…

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Death Star Droid figure has no major variations.

    Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
    Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
    I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
