    Point of Interest:

  • Comments: There’s something funny about the Death Star Droid that most collectors don’t think about when looking at it. Even though there is a similar droid in the Death Star (with a black finish), this guy was actually in the Jawas’ sandcrawler, making it more of a ‘Sandcrawler Droid’. Nonetheless, the name error caused it to have a bit more playability than it would have had, what with him secretly being a spy for the Empire and all…

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Death Star Droid figure has no major variations.
