Droideka New Vs Old

17 posts in this topic

NEW: http://www.asmzine.com/toyfair07/gallery/L...ars/index2.html

OLD: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemPic.asp?M=sw063

Which do you prefer?

I own the two sets that the orginal was released in

They are quite nice

The New one I do not own but it also appears to look nice

Also I beleive that it is more movie accurate, maybe

Piranha

yep your probably thinking thats like asking which darth vader do you like more

The ISD face or the OT face :-D

(hmm thats not a bad idea there ;-) )

I also own all of the sets with the original one and have been looking at pictures of the new one with curiousity. Until it's in my hand, I won't be absolutely sure, but I'd say that the new one does look a bit more 'movie accurate' though I still think I prefer the old one.

Like I say, I'd better wait until I can sit them side by side in person.

Well the new one does seem alot more like its film counterpart, but as IS states its hard to decide until we have the 2 in hand to compair.

New one looks 100% better than the old one. Looks more accurate and looks like it will stay together easier.

Agree that it'll stay together longer. It is more droidy than the first one. Btw, on that poster, it shows two AT-STs. One of the drivers has a 'dack' head. Maybe it's just the poster. I agree with IS. For my personal opinion, until it rests in my hand under close scrutiny via my eyes, I must say the old one is better. The new one looks too vertical and it isn't wide enough. It seems squished this way: /// \\\ The old one is this way: /// _ \\\ The way those guys put it together, the guns are tilted. The top is too thick, and the 'eyes' are onle one eye, not two like the original, and not three like the movie.

Hmm as I said that is like chosing between an old vader face and the new one

Well maybe not the New one is a completely different model

I will just have to hold it in my hand and compare between the old and the new

(off topic but I noticed TLG is not making anymore light up figures X-D

I wonder if they didn't sell too well.I prefer the non light up ones, but maybe if only the saber lit up then I would buy one.)

The new droid does look better than the old one, because of all of the new peices recently, but why don't you make a poll of this thread?

I like the new vader face, but both are okay to me. I heard someone say that lots of people would destroy the lego boxes and take the light up minifigs. X-O

Would an admin or a mod please make a poll of this thread?

Thanks :-)

quick question about the old design ... is it supposed to sit on the trans clear piece or is it supposed to sit on the legs (so that the trans clear piece is clear of the surface it's standing on) ?

I've always set them up like the latter ...

The old design sits on the clear piece for extra support
