About This Sixth Scale Figure

While critics would be quick to point out a battle droid's mindlessness as a fault, the proponents of the mechanized soldiers would counter that it is instead a virtue. A mindless soldier is a loyal soldier, unquestioning of orders, easily controlled, and absolutely fearless. Battle droids are tall, gaunt humanoids with exposed joints and bone-white metal finishes that gives them an eerie resemblance to animated skeletons.

Battle droid infantry is frightening in its uniformity -- only a numerical marking on the back of a comlink booster pack serves to distinguish one droid from another. Droids with specialized functions have distinct colored markings on their armor. Blue denotes pilot droids. Red denotes security droids. Yellow denotes command droids, which function with increased autonomy compared to the standard infantry. For the Trade Federation, the battle droid infantry piloted STAPs, MTTs, and AATs as well as their colossal battleships. For ease of storage and transportation, battle droids could compress into less than half their size.

Following the Naboo debacle, the Galactic Republic enacted strict legislation that prohibited the use of battle droid armies. The Trade Federation has shown its disrespect for Republic law in the past, and for years, many feared that the numerous foundries scattered throughout the galaxy were still churning out assembly lines of tireless soldiers.

Snagging a sold out set (Oct 2014)

Recently I've bought this through the website so it wasn't sold out completely! There is enough posability with these 2 figures. Also these are well balanced and sturdy. The 'battle damaged' look gives it the realistic touch it needs. A classic set!

Clankers are Marching In Reviewing the Exclusive Edition

I was very lucky to be able to pick up the exclusive version on a second chance offer. I have the regular version on display, so these will stay boxed up, but like everyone else has mentioned, awesome articulation and detail. Thanks Sideshow.


I wasnt sure about spending the money on these toys at first. I just got them in the mail today and WOW! amazing toys. I will for sure be ordering more.

Great Droids!!! Reviewing the Exclusive Edition

I really enjoy these droids. The craftsmanship is perfect. I'm so glad I bought them. These are "the droids you're looking for."

A 13-year old collector's review

I received my battle droids yesterday, and I am just so impressed with the quality of these figures! The way they were packaged partially in their folded-up configuration(the hands were not gripping their shins like they should)was a great feature to include! I love the articulation and paint decor!

Sideshows best to date

The best of Sideshows Sw offerings so far IMHO, great articulation, unique detailing & great price point. looking forward to SC's future droid releases! ie:Grevious & Ig88

Here come the droids! Reviewing the Exclusive Edition

Sideshow does a great job with these droids! Highly detailed, tons of articulation, nice paint apps...and fun! I wish the backpacks were a little more secure (they can fall off easily), but other than that, a must buy. I can't wait to have other droids in my collection from Sideshow.

Awesome in every way

I just got my Battle Droids today, and am I blown away. These things are way more articulate than I thought they would be. I was worried for the lack of stands, but of course Sideshow quality set that at ease.

It's an Invasion! Reviewing the Exclusive Edition

If anyone can do these Droids justice, it's Sideshow and they definitely came thru. Wide range of articulation, great detail and paint, plus a nice price. Can't go wrong.

Might be Sideshow's most fun 12" figure! Reviewing the Exclusive Edition

These guys are amazing, you really have to get them out and play with them to realize how much fun they are! I love getting two figures for (what nowadays is) the price of one, and I adore how mobile they are with all the articulation. Superb!

Might Need A Half Dozen More! Reviewing the Exclusive Edition

Great little droids. I usually collect only figs from orig trilogy, but I had to have these. Lots of articulation. Love the way they come boxed in "hibernation mode". Thinking about buying a 1/2 dozen more and displaying them on my own custom droid transport inviro, unless SC designs one 1st! ;-)

Roger, roger! Reviewing the Exclusive Edition

Cleverly packaged in "deactivated mode". Unfolded them for display - excellent articulation with tight joints and pins and great detail. My only issue is the backpack magnets are weak and the packs on mine tend to fall off easily. So 4 stars... Otherwise, GREAT!
