Here’s How To Build The Iconic Buzz Droid From LEGO® Droid Tri-Fighter 8086
In the Star Wars universe, buzz droids are specialized sabotage droids designed for disabling or destroying enemy spacecraft. Introduced to audiences in “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith,” these droids are deployed from Separatist missiles during space battles and are an integral part of the droid army. Once they attach themselves to the hull of an enemy ship, they proceed to dismantle it, targeting vital systems to incapacitate the vessel.
