R2-D2 #09 R2-D2 - The Black Series - Series 2 from Hasbro 2013 The Black Series

This Brave, loyal droid accompanies Anakin Skywalker on missions that take them from Naboo to Geonosis.

The Black Series #09 R2-D2 action figure may not have all the bells and whistles, but it has everything it needs to be a bona fide flying R2-D2. At the point of its release, it is the most screen accurate flying R2 Hasbro has released following versions with unused conceptual rockets, mandatory exposed third legs, or hideous yellow paint applications. This version is a repaint of the 2007 30th Anniversary Collection 30-04 R2-D2.

The second wave of figures in The Black Series basic collection also included the completely new, fully articulated #10 Pablo-Jill, the definitive new #11 Luminara Unduli, the repainted TVC buck #12 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper, the kit bash #13 Stormtrooper, the completely new #14 Mara Jade figures. This assortment was originally intended to be a part of Hasbro's cancelled 2013 Droid Factory Legacy Collection and most of them were first show in public at Hasbro's 2012 San Diego Comic-Con pavilion and the rest were revealed in the exact same location one year later.

Poll
Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
