BT-1 and 0-0-0 $12.95


First introduced in the Darth Vader comics, BT-1 and 0-0-0 serve the interests of the Galactic Empire with a special relish for destruction. 0-0-0 is a protocol droid specially equipped to interrogate and eliminate captives, while BT-1 possesses enough hidden firepower to destroy an entire squad of enemy soldiers. With their unique skills, you’ll be able to field these two droids in any Imperial strike team with the release of the BT-1 and 0-0-0 Villain Pack.

No matter where your Imperial Assault campaigns take you in the Star Wars galaxy, the Rebel heroes will have reason to fear to glowing red displays of BT-1 and 0-0-0. A new campaign Agenda mission challenges the heroes to rescue prisoners from an Imperial interrogation facility on Kessel and you’ll find a new skirmish map with two unique missions, giving you the opportunity to battle through the twisted corridors of the Tarkin Initiative Labs.

The Evil Twins

Nobody expected R2 to fly, or BT-1 to have a missile rack! Three DIFFERENT targets – HA!

“I am an ettiquette and protocol droid, lets shake hands and… ZZZZZAP!”

I bet he’s good at billiards trick shots too.

Is it the eyes or the fact he always carries a syringe?



Which droids would you rather have in your party?

  • Still hate them in the comics, to be honest. They’re so incredibly dull. Copy-pasted R2 & 3PO characters, just that all their bickering and chatter revolves around murderating things. It just strikes me as so lazy, and not usually funny or entertaining.
    Aphra is fine, if a bit too much of an Indiana Jones ft. Han knockoff, and her comic series is going fine, but her running around with evil3PO & murderbotR2, as well as a wookiee bounty hunter is just… cheap?

    • DeadlyYellow

      It takes a lot of work to pull off the evil copy without being mind-boggling stupid. Unfortunately, this being my first introduction to the characters has already shot that in the foot.

      The HKs were a much better murderous protocol droid, and I don’t really see the point of further weaponizing an astromech droid.

      • BenTheMan

        Exactly what I was thinking!

    • Xodis

      THANK YOU!

      Seriously the worst characters ever….including Dr. Alphra for me though.

  • as killer droids, they have nothing on HK-47.
