8001 Battle Droid

Bought Autumn 2002.

Year 2000, 328 pieces

Droid off-line and folded. By pressing (and holding) a button it extends into standing position thanks to a bunch of rubber bands and good design.

The right arm can pick up the gun via magnet by the twist of a gear in the back. Works sometimes but mostly the magnets does not align correctly. A cool feature though and it seems quicker then the eye when it works!

There is no alternative instructions to this set, if you don't count the possibility to change the color on some of the pieces into yellow or red to code the droid with different tasks (commander, general?). Not shown.

Divided into three different steps.

Great pieces
