"Those Clankers have tough armor!" -Commander Cody
Commando Droid are basically infiltration droids which more edgier to the standard B1 battle droids, tough they look slightly similar to their B1 droid counter parts, they are in fact much different inside out, for example:
1) Vocals: have much deeper voices, much similar to B2 Super Battle Droids (also able to change vocal to copy other individuals voices)
2) Appearance: HUMANNOID body frame, which allows them to fit into Clone Troopers armors (As seen on episode 22: Hostage Crisis, they wore the armor of the Senate Guards.) and also thicker armor to withstand blaster fire; however one shoot to their heads will take them out for good. (Cody & Rex find a Commando Droid in a clone trooper armor)
3) Software: programmed with addition hand 2 hand Combat & infiltrations software.
4) Mobility: Have more agility and swiftness than other droids.
These droids made their first appearance in CW Episode 5 Rookies, which they infiltrated a listening post on the Rishi Moon and in CW 21: Liberty of Ryloth & CW 22: Hostage Crisis.
Not really a huge fans of droids, however is nearly impossible to pass on the droids from the CW Series Line.
Example the Super Battle Droid from the series looks much better the CW movie versions and now we have this new droid “Commando Droids”
- 1X E-5 Droid Blaster
- The Battle pack comes with an “Elite” Droid Commando equipped with a “Vibro sword”
A Closer look at the Joints:
1) Great articulation (however not as good as the super articulated: IG-86 Assassin Droid)
2) E-5 droid blaster able to attached to its back is really good & handy
1) Although Overall shape follows the CW Series very closely, the toy figure looks kind of thin and flimsy to me. 2) Coloring of the droid is a little light & glossy, compare to Series version whereby it’s very weathered & matt.
This is my Third droid which I am purchasing this year and I am rather please with it, despite my two dislike points above. (which are minor)
With its articulation, it is able to produce many poses; therefore making it good for display & photo taking.
Basically to me it’s the capability of the droid we see in the series that makes us excited to get it and plus the great articulation is really a saver for this figure.
Cause at one glance it isn't the most appealing figure.
