Perhaps it is just that I am silly for droids (and aliens), but I feel that a 12" scale "Gonk" would be incredible. I would favor hollow, tubular legs over an interior armature for the leg articulation. Of course the figure could be made more interesting with an assortment of attachments (as seen on various "power droids" in the films) that can be fitted on the top and perhaps even an accompanying Treadwell droid to be assembled once opened. This would make quite a nice pair to join my 12" figure displays.
Any thoughts?

I'd like to see an ANH-styled GONK droid but packed with a fully-transforming Pit Droid from Ep 1.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean about the legs though.

Iwould settle for anything interesting in the 12' line. Anything different, as long it is not a reculpt. GONK all the way.

To answer the question about the legs in a Gonk droid, imagine if you will the actual droid costumes themselves. There is a person inside that "box" with tubes over thier legs and little metal looking boots over their feet to represent the squarish feet of the droid. What I was getting at was this, rather than have the legs be a single, molded piece (like in the 3.75" version), an inner leg with some articulation sleeved inside a hollow, ribbed tube that is affixed to the foot might make the droid a little more interesting. Just a thought.

I love the idea of the legs, JediCole. That would be a lot better than the dumb walking feature that came with the smaller scale Jawa

Maybe they could make it so you could take off the box part and see the midget guy in there with the suspender straps holding up the droid legs. ;)
