A model of labor droid known as the PK-series worker droid was used by the Trade Federation aboard the Saak'ak, a modified Lucrehulk-class LH-3210 cargo freighter, during the Invasion of Naboo, and were used by the Federation to collect the remains of destroyed B1 battle droids during the Battle of Naboo.
The ASP general purpose droid was a model of labor droid used on worlds across the galaxy, including Coruscant, Florrum, and Tatooine. An ASP droid designated K0-5D was heavily modified for gladiatorial combat and fought in the sparring pits aboard the Weequay pirate ship Marauder, where he usually emerged triumphant due to his steel-shredding servos and integrated flamethrower, earning him the nickname "Maximo."
A RIC, a crude model of labor droid also known as a rickshaw droid, designated RIC-920 pulled a rickshaw in Mos Espa, a port city located on the desert world of Tatooine, and another RIC was in use on the planet Jakku. Labor droids equipped with repulsorlifts were utilized in a refinery complex located in an asteroid field known as Pressy's Tumble.
Behind the scenesEdit
Labor droids first appeared in Star Wars: From the Adventures of Luke Skywalker, a 1976 Star Wars Legends novelization of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope ghostwritten by Alan Dean Foster but credited to George Lucas. They became canon when several ASP general purpose droids, a model of labor droid, were digitally inserted into the 1997 Special Edition version of A New Hope.
