It’s a rare case among vintage Star Wars action figures that a character was packaged without a weapon. I believe it came down to Anakin Skywalker, Han Solo in Carbonite, and of course all the droids.
This droid, the venerable FX-7 from the Empire Strikes Back, was no exception. What he lacked in terms of a cool blaster he more than made up for with 8 robo-arms that you could either have fastened to his side or popped out for droid-at-work mode. Also featured was a telescoping head just in case FX needed to get the jump on any creeping-up creeps.
