At nearly two metres in height, the creepy spindly FX6 droid is not to be crossed. Luckily, Hasbro did not make him to scale, could you imagine taking one of those home! The toy version comes in at about three inches in height and is a reminder of the FX7 droid who featured in 'The Empire Strikes Back.' The difference here is that FX6 is a nasty evil droid, who works for Vader. Vader actually used one of these droids to help him with a medical procedure, so they are very good with their tools. The toy is an unusual looking thing, that looks like a piece of machinery you might find in a garage. A spiked looking head with no real face alarms you with spikes coming from the top of the head, while just underneath, a small set of orange lights guide his actions. As you progress down his body, you will meet spindly arms which wiggle and waggle in various directions. They are quite flimsy so be careful not to snap them off. There is some good articulation on the arms and body though, suggesting that a lot of work has gone into crafting this chap. His lower body is just like FX7, with an oval base and little indents running all around it. I love his look and find him fascinating to observe, as his bodywork is so intricate. To add value, he comes with a leg piece and is poseable at his arms and head. In terms of play value, kids might not get him, but older collectors will delight in the high level of detail and colours. You can pick up a boxed droid for about five pounds and loose for about a pound or two. Worth getting!
