What's the source that says they shot yellow bolts? Can you see it in the movie? -Aiddat

Double articles? Edit

The article Tri-droid is the exact smae as this one. I think the other one should be deleted and this one kept (since this has the word Octuparra in it).--Ranat 23 20:23, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

    • We disagreed on that before, but from what the NEGD shows I think we should merge them. Anyway, I wonder how tall they are at normal height. I think they can get a height of 3.6 meters only by extending their bodies like in the cartoons. But they don't seem to be that tall in the picture on top of the infobox. Their larger models were 3.7 meters tall and there seems to be a big difference. Does the NEGD have any more height information? — Aiddat (Holonet) (Contribs Log) NR Seal 11:27, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Eh??? Edit

Why is this called Octuptarra combat tri-droid? Last time I checked, the Octuptarra and tri-droids were different. Where did this come from? Unit 8311 17:20, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

The Clone Wars Visual Guide Evidence Edit

The Visual Guide clearly distinguishes the difference between tri-droids and ocuparras, including size, but says that one type has 3 legs and the other has 4 legs9I forget which is which), but the images here both have 3 legs. Someone should do something(i.e. get a movie still)

  • I think that's a mistake, considering they're both named "tri-droid." The four-legged "tri-droid" is probably a variant of the Octuptarra combat tri-droid (which I still believe is the same as a "regular" tri-droid model).

    • Odd. But it is compelling evidence. This deserves more discussion.[[User:OOM-01|OOM-01]

Pictures Edit

Shouldn't we have a picture or at some more information on the giant verisons of these Droids? [[User:OOM-01|OOM-01]

Merger Edit

Why was this article merged with Tri-Droid? I thought it was established that these were different. Is there another discussion elsewhere that rebuffed this? Is there anything canon that says thta these are the same? Because I thought the Tri-Droid was bigger and more powerful, albeit similarly designed.Taral, Dark Lord of the Sith 14:58, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

  • See Talk:Tri-droid. These two are the same droid, but they are scaled differently for different roles. Grand Moff Tranner Imperial Department of Military Research (Comlink) 22:07, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
    • The new Campaign Guide separates the Octuptarra from the Tri-droid, claiming the latter was an upscaled model, based on the former. VT-16 13:35, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
      • Finally, the matter is settled and the articles can be re-separated into their individual articles then. - JMAS Hey, it's me! 13:38, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
        • A pity WOTC doesn't include height in teir stats... Eyeballing from Anakin on top of one in the CW movie, it looks somewhere around 14 meters tall, not the suggested 30.7 typo. Gry Sarth 18:32, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Separate again Edit

I'm beginning to separate articles per The Clone Wars Campaign Guide. Basically: Octuptarra combat tri-droid is the smaller droid seen on Coruscant in Clone Wars micro-series and on Utapau in ROTS; tri-droid is the gigantic version seen on Christophsis in The Clone Wars and on Mygeeto in ROTS. I'm going to ignore the 3.7 meters height given to tri-droid by Databank (as they are obviously much taller) and say something about that in BTS. Any help is appreciated.
