I am wondering if there is any chance of EVER seeing a 3 3/4 inch R2-D2 figure with all the pieces? I just got a second POTJ R2 Naboo escape to open, and I sure wish that the center leg was retractible (which would have been easy to do), and the head had the pop-up sensor (which also would have been easy to do) like the POTF2 R2 with instruments, and places to stick a data link and saw and claw, (also very easy). That with the clicking head and the wheels on the legs would have made it the PERFECT R2 figure. Why did hasbro stop short and NOT add these simple features that were done on a past figure? It would be nice to have an R2 with ALL The features on it. Is there any hope of ever seeing an R2 figure like this ever being made?

The POTJ R2 (otherwise known as R2-D2-Naboo Escape) comes from EPISODE 1,which he didn't use much of his insides in EP1!

Since they've done away with differentiating between POTF2 and Episode I with the new packaging, that point would be kinda moot, wouldn't it? The only thing linking that R2 to Episode I is that stupid force-file.

I know he didn't use the pop-up sensor or the instruments in TPM, but I still want to see a good R2 SOOO bad with retractible center leg and Pop-up head sensor and removable instruments for the body. I wish they would make one. That with the clicking head and the wheels on the legs would be such an awesome little 3" figure wouldn't it? And a clean and dirty variation would be cool too!!! I can just see it.
