Astrodroids in the 1st episode of The Mandalorian: https://bit.ly/2ph38yi 😉
Only one episode in, and already more astromechs than all of The Last Jedi (I don't really count BB units as proper astromechs, lol). Would love to get a better look at that black and white R5 unit. I wish that red TPM R5 would get blown up or something. And not in the show, in real life, heh. :ROFLMAO: Tired of seeing it pop up in all modern Star Wars media.

Good stuff. Can't wait to see what other new droids the rest of the season brings us. :) I hope the folks who design the Disney Parks 3.75" packs are paying close attention. As chance would have it, from that set of four above we already have at least two available now in their BAD parts bins. :D I'd love it of they gave us the little tractor droids, too.

I must say that it's not TPM's R5-X2 but TFA's and RO's R5-X3... just another (silly) wink to the audience

Yeah, I know it's not the exact droid from TPM (with its oddly pointy head), just referring to the color pattern. I may be mistaken, but I think the RO/TFA (and now Mandalorian) R5 is a fan-built droid which was meant to resemble R5-X2 from TPM. Regardless, much in the same way I never want to see another astromech toy from Japan done up in the Imperial R2-Q5 colors, I never wanna see R5-X2/X3 ever again!! Tell your friend Lee to ban that droid from all future Star Wars film sets.:LOL:

Honestly it would have been cooler if they were all new deco. Those are essentially, IMO, pretty much same as past Droids. And we don't need more reason for them to reissued the same deco, we need a reason for them to release all new ones.

The one in the bottom right doesn't interest me in the slightest.

Too bad those are not available on their own. I really like the black/blue and black/orange ones. Someone pointed out how they look like Black Series packaging which is apt and funny.

I wouldn't be so bad if they were different droid models & base colours. Also having the heads facing away is annoying, as you can't see if the eye dots are painted correctly.

I remember when the Royal Starship was in Toys r Us and people kept nicking the red Astromech by slashing the window and pulling the Droid free of the cardboard. My local store started removing the figure trays from the boxes adding a note to collect at the till.
