Hasbro's first wave of vehicles for Star Wars' 30th Anniversary includes the excellent Hailfire Droid. This is the mainstay of the Seperatist Forces and its main weapons are the two missile pods on either side of its body with 32 missiles to take out ground and air targets alike.
Collector's will recognise this toy as a similar version to the original Clone Wars Seperatist Forces Droid issue from 2003. This one sports changes to the paint job and some nice battle damage detailing.
The toy itself is quite large, with huge 12 inch track wheels, missile pods and a positionable blaster cannon. It comes disassembled in 7 parts and can be put together in a minute or so. When attaching the wheels, make sure they click right in or when you stand it up or they'll fall off when you roll it forward.
The Hailfire Droid is armed with 32 missiles. The lower 8 on each pod just slot in but the upper eight have a spring mechanism inside each tube. The missile clicks into place and when you place your finger on the back it launches out. This is fun but I can see kids losing the missiles very quickly.
All in all the Hailfire Droid is a must for the Star Wars Collector, a great toy for kids and a welcome addition to any Clone Wars diorama.
