Posted by: Dan Curto | 16 May 2013 | 18:07 EDT Sandwatch Guide: Droid Attack On The Coronet
A new series of Sandwatch Guide updates begin today with the Toys-"R"-Us exclusive Droid Attack On The Coronet multipack. This set includes a pair of clone trooper repaints facing off against a large-sized Spider Assassin Droid. But watch out...The droid has a trio of smaller Assassin Droid Spawns to back it up!
Based on an episode of THE CLONE WARS TV show, this set marks the debut of 501st Legion Clone Troopers Mixer and Redeye. Despite the slightly inaccurate helmets, these figures are musts for clone collectors. But the true star in this set is the Spider Assassin Droid, which includes multiple points of articulation, plus a removable head that reveals a trio of drones! More details and photos after the jump. Enjoy!
