It's A "Legacy" Of Figures From Hasbro In 2008

I'd be a lot more impressed by this BAF effort if it were something larger and more interesting, like how the advanced dwarf spider droid was rumored to have been the BAF awhile back. I mean, it's a cool idea and all, but as a collector who cares little for droids unless they're of the combat type, this isn't doing anything for me. And way to go on dropping the ball on the R7 Hasbro, a droid type that's not likely popular enough to warrant a single card release and they give it permanent booster rockets. I guess kids will have more fun with it that way, but I imagine most collectors will be pissed every time they look over at their R7s and it looks like they're all trying to burn rubber (do Astromechs have rubber wheels?) down the corridors of New Republic bases or whatever.

I agree. I wish the BADs weren't wonky little astromech and protocol droids. Don't get me wrong - I like droids, but I don't like the thrusters always out on the R7s or on C-3PX having all the random gun on his person. Hopefully the thrusters and guns are removable - otherwise I don't really care for them. I do wish they would build more interesting (and maybe larger droids like you said - the advanced dwarf spider would have been nifty.
