By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 27, 2012

This Battle Droid is the first release of the new 2012 Movie Heroes line-- the second is red.  So this is just different to make you mad, particularly because it's from a cheap 2-pack mold at $9.  So should you get it? No, but read on!

The MH16 Obi-Wan Kenobi comes with a cool Light-Up Lightsaber feature and an all new sculpt.There are two schools of thought when it comes to the latest wave of Movie Heroes.
