In 1986, Marvel introduced DROIDS, a comic book series starring R2-D2 and C-3PO, the lovable droids from the Star Wars films. Since the title was based on the cartoon series of the same name, it was released under the Star Comics name, a subline of comics that were aimed at a younger audience.

The bi-monthly series ran for a year, ending with issue #8. Of particular interest are issue #4, which was the first chapter in a crossover with the Star Comics series Ewoks, and issue #s 6-8, which featured "Star Wars According to the Droids," complete with additional scenes told from the perspective of the droids. Marvel UK also released several magazines that contained reprints of the DROIDS material.

Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
