Indeed, I mean, it already matches the other set!

I usually just build weapon systems that clip or slide right onto the shoulder there. Also not afraid to just throw on arms that are different colors ... they are veteran droids with field repairs =)
Well that's why I came up with my "Special Droids", like the Flail Droid:
But yeah, are the more recent droids at least made out of better plastic?
The ones that came in this set broke almost immediately, but the "Space Skeleton" arms I recently got in black plastic seem solid enough.
In any event, I'm going to order a LOT of spare arms.

Well this turret was build with as many of the pieces from the old slide out Droid Rack as possible, so I kept the bottom pretty much the same.
Also, the gimmick of this set was how the Rack could be slide out entirety, so I figured the vehicle would be perfect for picking up and moving around otherwise stationary weapons platforms!
So yeah, I was fully intending to make other weapons moduals that slid in and out of the back end.
