Don't understand why the Imperials decided to reuse Battle Droids and such. I would have started out fresh. Remodel all the vehicles.

Makes sense to me:

Why make new ones (paying engineers, technicians, new factories, new production models) and going through the entire hassle of making them fazultproof (malfunctions, spare parts, wiring, ...)
When you can just recover old facilities that had proven to be hilariously effective at combatting clonetroopers?


The answer is: logistics, time and money. 


Would you bother buying a new brand car when you have an old one that's perfectly fine, only in need of a tiny bit of maintanence?

I do understand your logic, and I don't doubt why they did it. But the only reason I say this is that it appears the Battle Droids signify the Clone Wars still aren't over.

I had the same thought, but maybe this squad was pinned down in an abandoned droid factory and had no choice but to reactivate them to get out alive and finish the mission, that'd make a great story with this picture as the cover =)

He says Cowering, but the Droideka has no dear or reccolection of any emotion except hate.
