In the 100 days leading up to STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, I am counting down my 100 favorite things about Star Wars. Here is today’s entry:
#77: 2-1B medical droid action figure
This is one cool action figure. It really stood out from all the other figures at the time. For one thing, there was the transparent mid-section. I hadn’t seen anything like that before. Then there is the legs and feet. Not the normal action figure generic leg. This was something special. Plus there was the cool face mask. It was like having an extra part built right in! The claw hands are cool too. I always made him a “medical droid by day, bounty hunter by night” sort of figure. That was one of the great things about the action figures: you could do whatever you wanted. The possibilities were endless.
