    Would you buy an updated Power Droid figure?

    If Hasbro made a battery operated, walking Power Droid (Gonk Droid) would you buy one, even if it cost a little more than a regular figure? They could put a sensor in it so that when you turn the figure upside down it makes the screaming sound that the one in ROTJ did in Jabba's dungeon. It could even make the 'gonk' sound while walking.

    But that's not all! We could add a remote control that is a replica of the droid caller!

    Seriously, I'd buy one and would happily pay whatever Hasbro would charge for it! Would you?

    I'd actually rather just get a new power droid sculpt without the annoying "walking" feature so it can actually stand up on its own without one of those clear rubber bands around its ankles. Both styles of Gonk would be nice (the same as the POTF2/Saga 2/Battlefront "face" and the one that hasn't been made into a figure yet, I think it was in TPM).

    Nope! I won't buy any of those remote controlled astromechs and a power droid is no different. Like vger I'd much rather just have a droid without the stupid walking function which for my droids, have always made it difficult to stand them up.

    I wouldn't necessarily want a walking power droid, but I've always wanted to see the E1 power droid made.

    I'd buy one if

    a) it was based on the Power Droid from the Sandcrawler
    b) it Gonked
    c) it could take its revenge on EV-9D9 and 8D8 :P

    While standing on its own two feet would be nice, unless an updated one urinates, or the droid equivalent, lightning or deficates, again droid equivalent, thunder, I'll pass.

    i'd buy a new gonk droid, but not the one described in post 1.

    the voice chip that can squeal wouldn't keep me from getting it, but the remote control/walking action would.

    Wouldn't buy it just for the walking action, that would probably make the price point a little too high. I'd like to see basic figure of it with a sound chip that made the "gonk" noise - that would be totally sweet.

    All that remote and electronics and sound stuff would be better for something other than the basic figure line. I would like to see a new Power Droid that could stand perfectly on it's own, as others have said.

    I just looked at gonk.net, and found a link to a fun little paper throwing game. Yet another way to waste time!
