Sandwatch Guide: FA-4 (Count Dooku's Pilot Droid)
FA-4 (Count Dooku's Pilot Droid) Review!For your viewing pleasure, here's a special review and gallery of the canceled "Build-A-Droid" FA-4 (Count Dooku's Pilot Droid)! Originally planned to be part of a new incarnation of the popular "Droid Factory" series, this figure excited some fans because it was the only ONLY brand-new, never-before-made character in the first 2 waves. However, due to recent changes in all things Star Wars, the line was canceled, shuffled, and several announced figures have not yet found a home....including this one. However, I've been able to acquire a sample anyway, so be sure to get more details and photos after the jump. Enjoy!
