Hasbro Vulture Droid

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.
