    I think that the sculpt it's not the worst, but such low quality plastic and laziness/stinginess on the paint apps are

    I love what this portends. I can't wait to see the actual designs of these LEGOfied characters.

    That is an odd Droid, even for Lego? Must not be a traditional Astro yet again. Will be interesting to see exactly why it has "humanesque" legs. I hope it's not simply Disney not wanting to feature regular old Droids.

    I seem to recall that there were leaks and rumours about a humorous franken-droid in Solo that kinda looked like it was assembled partly from gonk and astromech parts. I may have some of those details wrong as that's from memory, but if so, this is almost certainly the same character. I'd love to see more traditional astromech variants, but I'm still excited to see something a little different as well. Perhaps we'll be lucky and get some new astro droids rolling around in the background? At least we can count on Disney to be all over them with their in-park BAD releases if indeed there are some.

    I think the first Ron Howard sneek peek was with R2-M80, the yellow astromech from Rogue One.
    These ARE the droids we're looking for!

    It was, that's right. Well, that's one we can hope for, at least. Might not be technically new, but it's a start. Fingers crossed.

    Not digging the name though. M80? Is there no imagination when it comes to names? I assume that this Droid explodes at some point! lol

    Also, when it was explained that Droid names are just a fraction of their designation number. Nothing much has ever come of it, as we're still getting the same 4-5 digit versions.

    I may be wrong, but it was my understanding that R2-M80 was a hobbiest build that, much like many of the other droids in the new batch of films, has been elevated to canon by virtue of the UK R2 Builders being tapped to help provide droids for the movies. The R2-M80 moniker was presumably given to the droid by his fan builder. Whether the name transitions into canon as well, the way some of the others (like R2-BHD) have, or gets tweaked along the way (like R5-Y2 became Y5-X2), is presumably up to Pablo Hidalgo and whomever he consults with to make such calls.
