    Comments: OK, so there is no argument that the modern collection’s Gonk Droid is far more movie accurate than its vintage counterpart, the Power Droid, but don’t for a second think that it is a better toy. If it weren’t for its super cool sticker-for-a-face, and clicking legs -not unlike the clicking heads on Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) and Arfive-Defour (R5-D4) - it gets props for a little added feature Kenner’s predecessors haven’t quite figured out yet… A feature called ‘Being able to stand on its own’.

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