View Full Version : Is the Pit Droids 2-pack worth the big bucks?

The Pit Droids look quasi-cool from the pictures I've seen of them, but they were limited so they're a bit expensive. Are the figures themselves cool enough to warrant a purchase, or are they cheaply made crap like a lot of the older SW figs?

I thought they were pretty junky. Unless you're a completist, I'd skip them.

depends on what you do with them
if you want to build a junkshop it's cool to have them but not if you just want to display them
I was lucky and found them in my toysrus here in france for 5 euros (about $4.50) and immediently bought them, could use them in the cantina (not the one from the movie) in the background or something
they're pretty cool but not worth that much money

Might just try trading for them, you're bound to come across a fair offer.

i think they're pretty cool, i only paid a couple of bucks for em loose though.
i'm not fond of paying lots of money for kids toys.

They are very cool figures. But not worth the big bucks. I still need to get them too, I'm holding out for a good price.

I have them and I never opened them. Thus I say pass unless you must collect them all.

I have 'em carded and loose. They are more impressive carded.

I do agree, unless you are a completist I'd pass.

Though, if you find 'em cheap snag 'em.

I just bought my Ep. I Pit Droids on Ebay for $10.49.
Maybe a little more than I wanted, but I think I was
lucky to find them at that price.

Keep your eye open. You will find them.

Actually, I could see them eventually coming out with all the Pod Racers, and Pod Craft. People might then want to make lots of diaramas with pit droids. They might become a little more scarce then, but right now you can find them on-line for cheap.

I was never a big fan of the Pit Droids in E1. I picked up a set in a Target clearance bin but traded them away pretty quick. I'd agree with the others: unless you're a completist or building a diorama - pass.
