WANTED : Battle droid - 1:48

Post by Bouq » August 25th, 2019, 12:25 am

Hi,

I'm working on the Corporate Alliance droid tank from AMT.
It's a non-scale kit but it seems to be a 1:48 kit.

I'd like to add some battle droid but I don't know if such figures do exist.

Star Wars Legion figures tend to be around 1/45 or so, which is pretty close to 1/48.

They are coming out with the Trade Federation/Serperatist faction


As far as the size, here is a comparison shot of the Star Wars Legion Speeder Bike with the Bandai 1/48 AT-ST (and other various 1/48 stuff). I don;t have any of the Separatist stuff yet

You could do a whole diorama with the things they have announced so far

If you have a tool and aren't aware of what it can do, its dangerous. A jedi can do amazing things with a lightsaber. A roomful of chimps with lightsabers... would get messy.

The Cantina is pretty spot on for 1/72 scale

This is the Luke figure from that kit next to the Leia figure from the Fine Molds 1/72 Falcon kit

Image

I don't have Jabba's palace, but from what I understand, it is around 1/63 I think

Another FFG game, Imperial Assault has figures that are in the 1/53 to 1/57 range. That would be a closer match and they also have a nice variety of figures.

Although I think the Star Wars Legion figures are the closest size match. A bit on the large size, but not really noticeable unless you stand them next right next to a 1/48 figure

SW Legion droids will be the ones!... with some wookies... maybe a TX-130 from the same line of products...

I've just learned today that these products are only in pre-order. The kits will be available in late of September

Thanks for your help
