The Spider Droid has been made into a Lego set previously in 2008 as part of set 7681. The Droid is a part of the Separatist attack force and first featured in Star Wars Episode Two Attack Of The Clones, in the Battle of Geonosis. It was then heavily featured as part of the ongoing Clone Wars animated series.
The OG-9 Homing Spider Droid was built by the Commerce Guild and it’s large, bulbous central body contained a volatile reactor that would explode violently if it was hit too many times by enemy fire.
Lets take a look at the set:
