This Super Battle Droid was released individually carded during the Vintage Collection in February 2011. Super Battle Droids can be seen in Attack Of The Clones at the beginning of the Clone War.
This Super Battle Droid has seen several releases over the years (e.g. Super Battle Droid in Geonosis Arena Showdown 2-pack). The droid has 9 joints including 2 ball-jointed shoulders, 2 ball-jointed elbows, a ball-jointed waist, 2 ball-jointed hips and 2 swivel knees. The figure doesn't have articulated ankles, but the droid keeps its balance quite well nonetheless. Super Battle Droids have their weapons build into the forearms, hence they don't require a blaster. However, Hasbro included one with this droid to enhance the value. The blaster fits very, very tightly into both of the droid's hands. There are no removable panels or other gadgets on the droid.
The paint job on the Super Battle Droid is well done with a scratched-up look and some "Geonosis" dirt on the legs. The figure's sculpt isn't bad, but we've seen Super Battle Droids with more articulation in the past (TLC Super Battle Droid). All in all, this Super Battle Droid turned out well and makes a great army builder figure.
