Recent production Lost sincrodrone delta in yellow and glyan cerrek commando are reviewed by vintage1978 gonk droid.
It is hilarious to me that little blue bit of plastic is over 40 years old. I had one very similar when I was much smaller person. The legs still click when it walks, but it no longer has the antenna array on top.
Random toy factoid – The first star wars figures I owned were a gonk, a Chewbacca, Greedo, Darth Vader and a c3p0, brother got r2, a stormtrooper and an assortment of the other human-looking core good guys. He had a land speeder, too. I don’t remember if I had a vehicle, or if they just rode in the back of a tonka truck or something.
The Chewie and C3p0 got a severe case of loose joints in the shoulders and hips very quickly, to the point where they couldn’t stand without ragdolling head first.

Regarding hand to hand weapons in close combat

Random Scotto factoid:

My melee weapon of preference in a fantasy setting is has almost always boiled down to a one-handed axe or cleaver first, hammer or mallet next, then a pick or some sort of pointed short spear.

Swords are near the end of my list.

Not only are they great multifunctional tools but they are also (to my imagination) more readily available if you don’t have something handy.

Being a fan of dwarves as a fantasy humanoid character didn’t hurt either.

I think I originally leaned into Dwarf stuff was the nice opposite number to Elves, and the special abilities like seeing in the dark, high constitution and innate mapping senses made them pretty handy for dungeon crawling.
