    Comments: Little more than a glorified rehash of the Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) sculpt, Arfive-Defour (R5-D4) is still one very cool, unique figure. With the new head sculpt, and vac metal neck (along with red deco apposed to R2?s blue), this is definitely a figure that stands on it?s own, albeit borrowed, feet.


    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the R5-D4 figure has no major variations.

    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.
