Spider Droid (Blue)
A Spider Droid was a droid created and used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars. It had a blaster at the front, and four flexible legs.
To date, the Spider Droid has been released in two forms- one with a brown colour scheme, and one with a predominatly blue shade.
The original blue variant as a light blue head, and there is a grey phone piece with two transparent orange studs at the end of the piece connecting onto the head, representing eyes. Behind the head is a black aerial, which is connected via a clip at the back of the head area. The head has the ability rotate around. Also, a laser gun is present in the body area which facs forward, and can be moved up and down. The spider droid has four legs with grey feet.
In 2008, a brown variant of the droid was released. In this version, an antenna is present on top of the head, and the top section of the head is built out of a brown 'ball' that can move. There are four brown legs made from robot pieces present in the Exo-Force theme, and also used for MagnaGuard arms, and dark grey pieces commonly used as Battle Droid bodies are used as feet. The configuration of these legs gives the droid more movement than was available in the original variant. There is a black gun at the front with a long barrel attached below the head area, and the legs are joined onto the body by a black octagonal piece. This version of the Spider Droid has transparent red eyes.
In 2013 a new grey version of the Spider Droid will be released.
Spider droids were deployed by the Confederacy of Independent Systems in several battles, such as during the Battle of Kashyyyk, and the First Battle of Geonosis. Its primary weapon was a long blaster cannon which be used in a rapid-fire mode or as a high intensity blast that had a reduced rate of fire.
