    Points of Interest:
  • R2-D2 is a repaint of the figure from 2005's Early Bird Kit, which was based on 2004's VOTC R2-D2. In addition, a new non-removable side panel with restraining bolt has been added.
  • This version of R2-D2 is a combination of the entire "Jawa Capture" sequence: the energy effect is from when he gets blasted by the Jawas, however, he also includes a restraining bolt, which was not installed until afterwards.
  • This figure contains an extra "Droid Factory" piece to Build-A-Droid. This figure includes R3-A2's head & middle leg.
  • This figure has also been found in LC wave 13, with the left leg of BG-J38.

    Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
    I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
    I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
    I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
    I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
    I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
    I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
