S.H. Figuarts has been popping out the Star Wars figures in Japan and Asia since last year, starting with Darth Vader and running through some solid OT characters. They’ve recently switched gears to include Prequel characters such as the Clone Trooper, Darth Maul and the figure we will look at today, an Episode I Battle Droid! The Battle Droid is by design thin and simple, but it still packs the legendary Figuarts articulation in a unique sculpt. Let’s take a closer look after the break courtesy of site sponsor The Toy Source!
S.H. Figuarts Star Wars Episode I Battle Droid
Overall the Battle Droid is a fun figure. I thoroughly enjoyed having the other figures kick his ass during the shoot. He moves pretty much every which way you could want, pops apart and back together easily. He would be epic to troop build, thought at SHF prices here in the states that might be a little hard. Either way, combined with a Clone, Maul, Obi-Wan and the others, a Star Wars Prequel Trilogy shelf will have some serious heat.
Check out some key shots here, full set after that!
