    Anyone seen this one before or is it PODs' and I'm just dense with weak google-fu?
    Yeah, it's 'old' stuff... and no, it's not POD's: he's supposed to be doing something colossal

    Nice pics, EH! Thanks for sharing. I'm confused though. How can R2-M80 be repainted into the new orange one if both were photographed recently at that sci-fi con?

    Also, anybody else notice most of the newer astromech droids are either neutral colors (black, white, gray/silver) or earth tones (yellow, orange, brown)? Let's get some more eye-catching colors in the mix! Still waiting on a solid blue R2 unit with white or silver panels, similar to a prototype BAD Disney showed off years ago. Really hoping some more bold colorways make it into the mix for Episode 9. My kingdom for a turquoise astromech!! lol

    Scope the back row, just right of center, for the prototype blue R2, yet to be released at the parks.

    I think you saw Colin Barker's R2-D2 disguised with yellow decals...

    Oh, I think I understand now. I assumed this pic was taken at the same event. I think you just included the pic for comparison. Backdrops looked similar.

    It's funny how an instance of Hasbro choosing to be cheap with the paint apps has now influenced droid builders the world over. lol

    Its a shame Hasbro couldn't reciprocate and be more correct in their astromech paint jobs.

    These ARE the droids we're looking for!

    I really want that solid blue R2 as well. It's like my favorite shade of blue. If I could get an R3 dome with matching blue panels to go along with it, I'd be in heaven.

    And yes, Mark: Mike Filippidis' R2-M80 has been repainted into R2-F1P, and R5-PHT is Glynn Turner's black & silver R2 with a new R5 dome:
    I think these before and after pictures present an excellent example of the UK Droid Builders making something new out of what they had, and presumably within restrictions of budget, time, and only doing what can also later be reversed, given these droids are their own property. I hope they can do more of the same, and are permitted greater latitude to do ever more creative things with their droids. I'd love to see some more new domes and fresh colour schemes.

    Same great backdrop by Paul 'Wiz' Johnson, but look at floor and you'll see it's different
