Star Wars Collecting – Purchase of the Droids

Hello world! Today I’m showcasing a couple more Star Wars figures that have acquired, specifically from the “Purchase of the Droids” scene on Tatooine.

The Jawas have arrived at the Lars Homestead, and they have just lined up six of their droids to offer for sale to the moisture farmer Owen Lars.

Owen Lars is thinking of getting a couple of droids to help out at his moisture farm for the current season, and his nephew Luke Skywalker tags along to view the droids.

“Something seems oddly familiar about that protocol droid…” and Uncle Owen dismisses that thought.

Uncle Owen chats with the gold-plated protocol droid, and finds out that the droid not only understands the binary language of moisture vaporators, and it also speaks Bocce. Uncle Owen decides that this is the droid that he’s looking for.

“Come on Red! Let’s go!”

“Pop – bang!”

“Uncle Owen, this R2 unit has a bad motivator. Look!”

Following the protocol droid’s recommendation, Uncle Owen swaps the red R2 unit for the blue one, who also seems to look somewhat familiar…  naaah!

“Now don’t you forget this! Why I should stick my neck out for you is quite beyond my capacity!”

Just one more:

“Yes, the droid speaks Bocce. It told me so.”
