Wait, they didn't buy him!

I noticed yesterday Treadwell was in the Lars house - after the Jawas had one to sell that they didn't buy.

They owned that Treadwell before the droid sale. You can see him in the footage/photo helping Luke to repair a moisture vaporator while the Tantive IV is being attacked by the Star Destroyer. Luke watches the fight and then goes into Anchorhead to tell his friends, where he meets up with Biggs.

I got confused about the droids in the lineup, the Jawas have the spidery one, my bad.

I did see a continuity error there last night, there's a brief cut back to R2 after Red blows his motivator, and luke says what about that one, cut back to Artoo, and a couple Jawas are fooling with Red right next to him...

There is another WED-15 Treadwell on the Sandcrawler, though, which wasn't in the sale.  WED-15-I662.

Side note.  To be honest, while some (read: wookieepedia) treat the Septoid (spidery droid) as basically a Treadwell with a lot of extra arms, I've always felt it was a different model entirely, albeit by the same manufacturer.

It doesn't have the same head.  It doesn't have the same base (more enclosed).  The only real similarity is that it has a similar layout: a flat base with treads and an aerial, and a stick body.  But even the body differs from Treadwell's; it's more uniform and the mount is raised off the base and surrounded by a ring type of mount for the arms.

Edit edit: Bah, ignore this edit.  The forum was eating the Septoid link above. Now it is working fine.  No idea what's up with that, though I still can't link insert the images from the gallery inline.
