I also posted this in the 12 Inch discussion thread, but I'm hoping to find help here as well...

I'm wondering whether the R2 unit I have pictured here is a custom or not.

It appears to be the Hasbro R2-A6 from its 12 inch line, but it has shamrock stickers on the front and atop both legs. It's date stamped 1997 by Hasbro.

I forget where I got it, but I don't remember putting the shamrock stickers there myself :\

Any help would be great.

I'm almost positive that those are just random stickers put on...

But I did read that Ric Oliť considered this droid lucky. The stickers could have been put there to stand in for four-leaf clovers... But not by Hasbro.

Someone stuck St. Patrick's Day stickers onto your Ep1 R2-A6 figure.

It was produced (sans shamrocks) in 1999 for the Ep1 line; but it used the R2-D2 mold from the 1997 6" R2-D2 figure which is why the datestamp says 1997.

Thanks for the help, gang! Looks good for the season though, I guess. :)
