Vulture Droid - Minifig Scale
This is the Variable Geometry Self-Propelled Battle Droid, Mark I... too long, it's the Vulture Droid. First seen in Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace this was the primary starfighter used by the Trade Federation. Logistically this starfighter makes a lot of sense. It's small, fast, maneuverable, and doesn't result in a loss of life if destroyed in combat. It also has the ability to walk on the ground which is good for patrolling or quickly launching from the outside of larger cruisers. Ultimately the lack of a real pilot made them easy to predict and they were only truly effective in battles if grouped in large numbers.
This model is strong and can be posed in flight mode as well as many different walking positions with full head articulation. Also the little black stand is included.
