Upon the reveal of the new Target Exclusive Droid 3-pk by Sandtroopers.com, forums and social media outlets have been abuzz. Forum member JACKOFTRADZE over at JediDefender was quick to point out that Power Droid included in this set is actually a new sculpt and not a simple repaint of a previously released Gonk Droid mold. Based upon the discussions, I whipped up a quick analysis of the differences between this new sculpt and the prior versions to point out just where some of the differences lie.

This repaint of the previous Wal-Mart and Target offering has new paint deco, but appears to lack having the amazing new AT-ST driver that was part of the Target offering previously.
