I agree completely. I already own the 1:1, two versions of the 1:4 PF, and several copies of the 1:6 for different displays. I don't see any need for a 1:2 at that price, it doesn't add enough value.$2,000 for a 1:2 item is almost comical to me. I'm a huge R2 fan but this just seems to stretch things a bit too far.
High quality plastic materials, lol. I'd much rather just do a full-scale R2 build for not much more (unless it's entirely aluminum).I think a 1:2 scale humanoid character is easier to justify the high price. But for R2 it just seems almost absurd. I know it will be quality materials vs plastic like you see in to more toyish versions at the same scale but $2,000? Nah.
The Sideshow 1:1 R2 has already been produced for $5500 with taxes and shipping, so no, they couldn't do a 1:1 for $2K.But for $2,000? They could easily do a 1:1 for the same price with maybe a few less bells and whistles. I'd rather wait and see if GG does the 1:1 scale Kenner R2 that they showed off at Celebration last year.
