Thrift Store Find: Star Wars FX-7 Medical Droid

If you blinked at the wrong time while watching Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, then you might have missed seeing the FX-7 medical droid on screen. Along with 2-1B, it helped Luke Skywalker recover from his Wampa encounter on Hoth. I actually picked it up a few years ago at a local thrift store in a bag with other action figures that I wanted. I like the fact that his "head" extends up.

A sleeker version of FX-7 was made for the Star Wars: Power of the Jedi and can be purchased below:

I used to love this toy as a kid but I hated the little fold-out arms. I always used to get them stuck under my finger nails (you know, in the soft, fleshy bit there) whenever I tried to pull them out.
