Thread: R2-D2 - ANH

  1. #21
    R2 would be an OK choice only if it came rigged as the Sail Barge version (VC25). I'm sure it would be a welcome addition given prices on the secondary market.

    Just like the time I could have met Mr. T at the mall. The entire day, I kept saying, "l'll go a little later, I'll go a littler later..." And when I got there, they told me he just left. And when I asked the mall guy if he'll ever come back again, he said he didn't know. Well, I'm never going to let something like that happen again!

The same goes for a repack like Revan, that's a $7-8 figure, and with no retooling, I'm not sure how it falls into the category of a premium figure release. The collectors that begged Hasbro to bring this line back should hold them accountable, and discuss these issues at the various cons they're making these reveals at...
    Good points and they are not premium figures. They are not something I will buy, even if I was disparate for these figures in this scale I would wait for a sale or more accurate price point. I'm not sure I will get Chewbacca either, it is pretty lame offering other than the better paint.

    Btw, what do you think about the R2 being all grimed up? Still for me a pretty boring rehash (which I won’t be purchasing), but does perpetuate some interest.
    Its the exact same grime as in the EE 2-pack with Threepio
    “What’s a Star War?”

    Posted this elsewhere, but feel it applies here too.

    I realize this R2 repack ticks a box for some people. However, it could have literally been any unreleased Astro and I'd have been 100% happier! After all an Astro is an Astro aside from the paint deco. So it was a perfect opportunity to get something newish(repaint), while at the same time Hasbro saves Money. Right?

    What Astro Droids do we still need from the Movies that could have simply utilized a repaint? I mean really, it's been how long since Hasbro release a sinlge Droid on a cardback, and it's an R2 repack??? ugh...

    Really wish they'd come out with some kind of limited small figure sub-line with a cheaper price point. Astromechs should all be released in the star wars universe line and stuff like jawas,ewoks, etc should be multipacks or a single card sub-line.
    OT,PT,ST,RO,TPM,AOTC,ROTS,ANH,ESB,ROTJ,TFA,TLJ.... .STOP THE ABBREVIATION MADNESS!!! We are one abbreviation away from being scientologists. Now is the time to join The Abbreviation Resistance Movement!!!

    I still have one R2 D2 figure and thats the old Saga Collection R2 D2 and thats all i need for an R2 D2 figure

    I’m of two minds about this addition. On one hand, this is fantastic for the ten people left who are still clamoring for a complete revisit of the Original 12 (most of whom I can only presume are of an advanced age, leaving me to wonder why they should be so heavily catered to but I digress). On the other hand, it would be most sensible to re-release or otherwise include the baR2-D2 accessories, though I’m sure the O12 purists would unleash a primal scream of bloody murder despite their impassioned pleas for worthwhile accessories to be packed into the bubble with this release.

    Anyway, I’ve got my TVC baR2-D2 so I’m good for my collection.

    That's a really good point. There are tons of R2 droids that never had a vintage carded release. I'm with you. It would have been nice to get something new in that dept.
