Saw this slide from GG at SDCC. Looks like we are getting the life size R2-D2 figure. OK, just take my money now!!! The big question is do I buy one and be happy? Or do I buy 4 and customize the domes. :grin:

If GG ever get around to producing this, I'd prefer it to be the "with Pop-up lightsaber" version......
How cool would it be to have a life-size vintage lightsaber to also play with!

I know guys 3D printing vintage SW weapons including lightsabers, so they are already available.

All over this if they would just make the blasted thing!

Would be first GG purchase in YEARS for me if so.

Maybe make it an all-in-one version. Build it as the lightsaber version but have a little cap that covers the hole. Another removable cap and you can put the Sensorscope in it.

That's an awesome idea. It would certainly add value to the smaller sized 'monument'......

The problem with this idea is that the dome for the solid top/sensorscope is different than the pop up saber version. If they did that it would look wrong and like crap.

Oh, how so? If the dome had a cap that could be removed to insert a sensorscope (extended position) or the lightsaber partially exposed, how would that "look crap" ?
It's not like GG haven't taken liberties with this line before.....

Also, not sure if you're being funny in your signature block, but the Germans didn't bomb Pearl Harbour....???

The Best way to describe the sculpt difference between the three domes is to look at the pie wedges on the top of the dome. On the Solid top/Sensorscope domes, the pie wedges are positioned so a wedge is centered over the large eye. On the pop up saber dome, the wedges are shifted slightly so a dividing bar between two wedges is centered over the large eye. It's not a big change overall but it is a change none the less. There is also differences in the blue boxes on the sides of the dome too. As far as the body goes, technically the pop up saber was a completely new sculpt as the inside of the barrel had to be designed to make the saber move up when the dome was turned. It looks the same externally but is different internally.

And as BillMulder already said, the Germans and Pearl Harbor line is a quote from one of the greatest movies ever, "National Lampoon's Animal House".

It struck me as something D Trump might have said TBH

Anyone here have a vintage R2-D2 with sensorscope missing the sensorscope? I'm wondering if you could take a pic of it with a Luke Jedi lighsaber inserted into the dome to give GG an idea of what we're talking about. Reason I suggest the Luke Jedi weapon and not the R2 pop-up lightsaber as I am pretty sure that bell-end thing wouldn't fit :P

I get the differences between the domes but I'm certainly not wanting the life-size R2 requiring its head to be turned to pop-up the lightsaber. I think it is obvious that the suggested 'extras' would merely be stuck into the hole that is revealed when removing the cap. The lightsaber for what its worth could even be just the hilt.....and the sensorscope wouldn't retract into the body. I can't understand how this idea would be considered looking "like crap".

And while I'm dreaming about it, why not give us a Droid Factory third leg too for yet another display option? I'm giving you plenty of money making ideas GG !

So this is in the latest BBTS preorder email - at the bargain price of $3199.

Thought I might get this one - but not at that price. Oh well.

I agree. Was going to be a definite purchase, but it is 30% more almost than Vader, Fett, Stormtrooper. Can't do it. Bummer.

If it is $3199 in the US .I hate to think what they will charge here in Australia .What a rip off .That's what i would pay for the real thing .

Yep.

And I foresee the cancelling of the lifesize line due to "poor sales" and collectors not "supporting" the line - when in actuality there is a price point where even us die hard collectors say.........nope.

I was planning on getting this too, for my office. Highly doubt anyone will drop that kind of coin for this.

For $3,199 - C3PO and R5D4 better come in the crate too!

$3,199 is the kind of pricing you'd see on ebay from money gouging scalpers!
Excuse my language, but GGLTD are taking the f*cking p*ss.

Forgive me for asking, but what was the retail price on the other Life-Sized figures? I never paid attention to the prices before because they're all out of my range.
So far GG has made Vader, Boba Fett and a Stormtrooper, right?
Are there published edition sizes?

The Stortrooper and Vader were around $2300 each (Vader slightly higher) and Boba Fett was about $2700

Not sure on edition sizes

So, has GG come to realize they overpriced this? Drop this to below a grand and I'll bite.

Yeah, I don't understand how they can justify asking for more for R2 compared to Fett and Vader when he's half the size. Are they thinking the vac-metal dome is supposed to make it more expensive? I definitely wouldn't pay more than $1000 for him.

Why is R2 so much more than Vader and Fett? It is smaller and doesn’t appear to have a base like the others did.

That's what I've been asking from the start. Good luck getting an answer out of GG.

I really want it, but it’s hard to justify spending so much when I could get Vader for $600+ less and it’s twice the size.

I am expecting deep discounts on R2 once they arrive and sit at that price.

I was so close to purchasing the Fett, but just couldn't justify the price...and I'm sure my wife wouldn't have been happy when the large crate arrived. Maybe one day when I win lotto, I'll find one on ebay.
