Your Favorite Marvel Murder Droids Have Exclusive Statues At Star Wars Celebration
So whose your favorite Star Wars droid? I don't mean C-3PO or R2-D2, or BB-8 or K-2SO. I'd even be a little disappointed if you said Chopper. Those are all fine droids, but there are so many interesting robots lurking around the edges of the Star Wars Galaxy, just waiting to be discovered and appreciated. Two of the very best are BT-1 and Triple Zero, who first appeared in Marvel's Darth Vader comic, by Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca.
They're two of the best because really, they're two of the worst. They're both vicious criminals and murders, which makes their superficial resemblance to Artoo and Threepio all the more fun. And now, those wicked little bastards are getting their own statues from Kotobukiya, which will be available exclusively at Star Wars Celebration 2017. You can check out the gallery above and see for yourself just how awesome they look.
The other three exclusive statues are all astromech droids from A New Hope. The most recognizable is R5-D4, the little guy who blew a motivator just so R2-D2 could go home with Luke and C-3PO instead. Then there's R4-M9, and Imperial droid that took part in the raid of Leia's Blockade Runner. And finally there's R2-X2, a stylish rebel droid who sadly didn't make it out of the first Death Star battle. All of the statues looks great, but let's be real, it's all about those murder droids.
