Wampa attack, so that's something too. Oh, and gave Luke a new hand. Dang, 2-1B. You're a boss! Let's check this guy out after the break...
Height: 3 3/4ths inches
Articulation: Bobbling head.
Accessories: Display stand
Non-Scalper Price: $10 dollars
* The head sculpt is great on 2-1B. It looks just like him! The paint scheme is excellent, too. I love that metallic blue. It's such an appealing color.
* 2-1B has a vocoder unit where a human mouth would be and it's connected to his chest by a cord of some sort. The cord is actually made of a rubbery plastic and it really looks impressive. I don't see this sort of effect of an extra piece that attaches the head to the body on POP! vinyls often.
* 2-1B's grippers look great. They're extremely detailed and look rather intricate.
* The legs are also nicely sculpted. The figure can absolutely balance on his own without the stand if you so desire.
* 2-1B comes with the same stand that all of the Star Wars POP!
figures come with, and I still like it. These are really cool. I kind of
wish every POP! came with a stand. It just makes them look so much
better and display so much more securely on the shelves.
I just kind of stumbled upon 2-1B (I wasn't actively seeking him out) and I'm quite glad I did. He's an excellent POP! vinyl of a character who ticks off so many boxes on the Star Wars list of greatness: ESB character? Check. Droid? Check. Had a vintage Kenner toy? Check. Metallic blue? Check. 2-1B is a really fun figure and looks awesome hanging out with other droids. There isn't an FX-7 POP! vinyl, but it's only a matter of time, right? Maybe we'll see one at Toy Fair 2018!
