Commentary: The droid G2-9T is a repaint of G2-4T, who was sold a few years earlier-- if this is confusing, don't worry, as both have their names written on their heads in English. It's pretty much the same figure, except the red is now blue-- and the blue one, I think, looks just a little bit better. With barely six points of articulation and a lot of loose wires, the figure looks weird, ugly, and just barely Star Wars-y... but it does fit in nicely in certain environments, like a Sandcrawler or junk dealer's shop. There's not too much detail here, but it's just enough to give you the feeling that G2-9T is barely held together, it looks like a collection of loose parts and wires that'll fall apart if you look at them funny. Thankfully, the figure is slightly more durable, but there are some weak points so take care as not to snap off what seems to be some sort of coat hanger sex organ handing in front of the area between his legs.

Collector's Notes: It was $10 originally, and can be had for that or less on the secondary market. Despite their limited nature and generally light distribution, these figures aren't exactly worth a lot. Maybe it's because they look weird, maybe it's because fans just don't care or know they exist-- but they can be had for their original price with almost no problems. Unfortunately, many of the theme parks no longer sell them, so eBay is your best bet. (MORE IMAGES)
