I saw a red Arena Battle Droid (carded) in the sirsteve collectr database. Was this guy ever released in the States? I never saw the guy in Canada...
Frankly, this Arena droid cannot compare with the oomer damage version. The new one has TERRIBLE paint application, and the color is so awful! The plastic looks so cheap! The best thing to do it to get some Boomer damage droids, clean the chest with paint thinner, and make him hold his gun with 2 hands. It works very well, and looks SO much better than the Arena droid.
Well, I would still LOVE to get a red droid! I know that we'll get one with Threepio (should NOT be red though) and the accessory set, but I would still love a carded red one, although the red looks too dark.
