Ah, the Death Star droid.You know, I don't think he ever showed up on the death star. I remember seeing him on the jawa sandcrawler. Well, I guess I'll be watching Star Wars today. No no, I'll wait until next friday (check the date on that guys) and make a party out of it.
I think one walks by when they're waiting to get on the turbolift to the detention block.The paint flecking off just adds that extra nostalgia in this shot.
According to Wookiepedia: A droid appears inside the Jawas' sandcrawler after R2-D2 is dropped in after being disabled by the Jawas in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. A black Death Star Droid appears briefly in A New Hope walking past Han Solo, Chewbacca and Luke Skywalker outside the Death Star elevator doors. This was one of those figures that I never really fell in love with as a kid. I had one, but he pretty much just acted as Darth Vader's protocol droid during my made-up adventures. And I always wished he could hold a weapon. I just scored this one at Emerald City Comic Con for a whopping $4. :)
It was a second string favorite of mine. I think because the head is insect looking.
Had this one as a kid and used to pretend he was one of the Bounty Hunters. The lust of mine from what i remember always seemed off or lacking to me.
Just got my first one on ebay this year. Noticed he had kind of a weird feeling to the figure unlike the smoothness of the 3po versions just like jboy said. It was early star wars so he def gets some slack.
For me, another figure along the lines of FX-7.
