I am so happy when I got this. All I know was that the price I got it was quite reasonable. Not too expensive when compared to the street prices but OK, la. And it was quite a nice toy too ever since Habsro started to issue new vehicle toys with very good details, which, I secretly catered to the older market. Nowadays, you do not see them with funny obscene rounded or blunt kid-friendly edges but more of accurate movie lines.
And also, I was glad I waited. When the Episode 1 first came out, the only source of these droids were the model kits. The come in a set of three with the appropriate stand and they're not exactly big either. Then the second time was in 2011 when The Outpost was having a final sale where, unfortunately, it was not for sale but as a separate item i.e. It was placed there by an individual seller and the price was just not worth it. Then, it was this time I spotted the toy again, this time at Mid-Valley's Comic shop. And so, I bought it in about 300 hearbeats...
|For the box to be this big, it gave the impression that the toy is huge|
|And with the back photo, the toy seems to be able to transform from Fighter mode to well, Walker mode.|
|And oh, how I wished I got this too...|
|Opening the box, this was the only item secured. Yes, I know its a second-hand toy and I am happy to know that none of its missiles has been fired. Chances are, I am going to use them in another way...|
|This is how the toy looks like straight out from the box|
|And after some foul language cursing, I got it to stand|
|The missile fires from under the belly and this area will be filled if I decided to take on the project.|
|The rear end looks good but at the moment, I cannot locate any big sized thrusters to go with it|
|These ball joints are what makes the transformation from Fighter to Walker possible|
|And its also the same ball joint which makes you want to reach for a bottle of glue|
|Because if you don't, this is what would happen if you touched or even looked at it wrong.|
