DROIDS: ESCAPE INTO TERROR & THE NEW KING



The Star Wars Droids series were never broadcasted on dutch television in the 80s.
That probably explains that it was no love at first sight when first seeing the Droids rigs on theswca.com one day.
Things have changed since then and nowadays I consider them one of the greatest rigs around, mostly for their cool and clever design:
SIDE GUNNER and ATL INTERCEPTOR.

While looking for some background info for the POTB thread, I stumbled upon these two Droids episodes featuring the two rigs in full action, and thought about sharing them here.


ESCAPE INTO TERROR (Part 2 in the Droids Serie): Featuring the ATL INTERCEPTOR (and Vlix!!! )  

THE NEW KING (Part 6 in the Droids Serie): Featuring the SIDE GUNNER (and IG-88 flying a TIE something  cheers ).


Have fun guys, while watching:  popcorn

Do you know of any other Droids episodes featuring the SIDE GUNNER OR ATL INTERCEPTOR?

Please post them here.

In Belgium (Flanders) VTM did broadcast 'Droids' (not 'The Great Heep', though) so I taped all the episodes back then. I guess it must have been 1989. I've always enjoyed Droids a lot since then. Great cartoon, always underestimated.

Thx for crediting my screencap at Yodapedia.
