Star Wars Lego Advent Calendar #11 [2011]

DSC_1276We haven’t had anything from the Star Wars prequels in a while so maybe this Battle Droid Pilot isn’t the end of the world. Honestly – the concept of a robot army is pretty awesome if it is more Terminator and less slapstick which is what these guys were in several places. I know the point was to demonstrate the need for a “clone” army or slightly better technology but it was kinda lame. Robots should be cold emotionless warriors not thinking machines and definitely not feeling machines. (See my issues with Transformers movie.)

The OOM pilot battle droid was a OOM-series battle droid in the Trade Federation Droid Army and, later, the Separatist Droid Army for the purpose of piloting vehicles of various kinds.

So not a bad pick for day 11 but not a great one either. We are under the two week mark before Santa gets here. It is almost time to start shopping.
