Following Wednesday's announcement of the Disneyland exclusive R2-D60 figure
, Disney have listened to the fan community and advised that the figure will no longer be limited.
Cut & paste from the Disney park blog
about R2-D60 no longer being limited (Michelle is a cast member):

Iíve been to a number of Star Wars Facebook groups and people are not happy about this. Collectors like to get at least one of every figure, especially the droids. The Random Selection Process and the fact that you have to be in Disneyland to get the R2-D60 figure is making it next to impossible to get this little guy. Exclusives are nice and all but when you make it that hard to get what you want, itís just frustrating. SW fans just want the figure!

Thank you for your feedback Terry! The only other recommendation I can make is that based on availability in park when the item debuts, you may have the opportunity to contact our Disney Merchandise Guest Services team to order it.

Terry, good news. We will be updating the catalog, as it turns out, the R2-D60 will not be a limited edition, so please use the force and help spread the word. We should have that updated by tomorrow or so.
Kudos to Terry from PA for getting on the case. The Star Wars
collecting community salutes you!
