But notice how they had to display him with his periscope erect like the little astro-tease that he is.

Is this the same mold as the force link one?
No. It's the bar2-d2 mold from tvc1.0 (2010). This mold is also in current use for the target excl droids r2-d2. The force link r2-d2 is a modified BaD mold ( no extra side holes and legs modified to have rooser rockets added)

Thank you. What is the difference between the BaD and this one?

I guess this release means that we'll never actually get the Sensorscope version. lol
They could use the tbs dagobah r2 card art and re-release this r2 again but w/ the actual "sensorscope" seen on hoth since this one has the periscope as seen on dagobah, 😄

So outside of the accessories, there is nothing different about the actual figure from the 2010 version?

He now features "premium paint deco," "collector quality plastics," and "retro designed packaging art," all of which justifies the price increase and accessory decrease.

Sadly, Hasbro had to remove the "NOW!! WITH" from the front (preceding "SENSORSCOPE!!") in order to save on ink, to keep the price from going up to $20.96.
