The LOM series of Protocol Droids was created by Industrial Automaton as direct competition to the popular 3PO-Series Protocol Droids from Cybot Galactica. Indeed, Industrial Automaton managed to acquire many of the same components used in the 3PO design, and as a result, the main chassis of LOM-Series Droids is extremely similar to that of 3PO models. However, the head of the LOM-Series Droid has a distinctly insectoid appearance, designed to appeal to Species such as the Gand and Verpine.
Equipped with AA-1 Verbobrains (As were 3PO units) and excellent translator models, the LOM-Series initially sold well. Indeed, their personalities were often preferred to those of 3PO units, since LOM Droids had a propensity for sensible, rational action even under pressure. However, LOM-Series Droids often developed personalities too blunt to make them effective Protocol Droids. Many LOM-Series Droids removed their own Restraining Bolts and obtained reprogramming to enable them to carry out independent operations. This trend, coupled with legal pressure from Cybot Galactica, caused Industrial Automaton to stop producing the model. In The Rebellion Era, many used LOM-Series Droids are sold far below market value, and independent LOM traders and explorers are not unknown.
LOM-Series Droids can be played as Droid Heroes.
