Very nice comparison pics- I hadn't noticed the leg-length difference so clearly.

I just ordered R2-Q5. As long as I had to pay my tribute to get a VOTC case, I thought I should get one of these as well. I hope they are set up on a different frequency than R2-D2 so I can run them together.

I  ordered  my  2  R4-P17s  and  2  R2-Q5s  on  2/7/06.  SWS.com  recently  updated  the  shipping  schedule  to  April  7th.

If  they  make  any  more  RC  R-2  units  I  hope  they  make  an  R2-B1  and  then  concentrate  on   R2  units  not  yet  represented  as  toys.

If  the  start  making  RC  R-5s  in  attempt  to  catch  up  with  the  other  models  I'd  be  stoked.

Do we know if they will be on different frequencies (or whatever they are using) than R2-D2 or each other?  Basically can all 3 be used at the same time?  I'd love to get all 3 going at once with my daughter and nephew and have astromech races.

I'mg onna wager no on that Paul but the idea is the most logical.

Who here wouldn't be racing theirs with friends?  I want to make a Death Star obstacle course for astromechs.  :)  That'd be the ultimate toy to accompany these if you ask me...  lots of ramps, working elevators, tight turns, narrow walkways and such.

The RC-D2's are probably the best gimmick ever in the line...

Those last 2 ideas were really awesome guys! I never thought about doing that...yes, a course with obstacles that have to be carefully navigated..backwards diagonal turns ect.. just awesome!

As for me... I won't buy another of these until they come out with a different model like an R5 unit or something else different. I kinda feel 'cheapened' out sometimes when expensive product like this with same looks/capabilities is pushed with a different paint scheme. If I had my choice I certainly would have bought the black R2 unit instead of R2D2 IF they offered that first though. Oh well

I loved the first one so I hope that sws.com gets the other two in.

I didn't pre-order these so I'm hoping I don't miss out on them.  I couldn't afford the pre-order at the time so I held off...  I may need to put in some kind of order though to SWS or something here...  The first was great, the next two look fantastic too... 

I still want an obstacle course for them. :)

Jon, I agree about feeling cheapened...  Plus, they're droids we already have, and not exactly exciting color choices.  Neither did much in the films, though to Q5's defense he'd be perfect for the Death Star obstacle course. :)

An R5 would be nice though...  Still these appeal to me because they're something vastly different than we're used to, and at this point astromechs are tough to improve upon...  You almost have to go the gimmick route, so I'm ok with them as is.

I still have to order these new ones if I want them...  With how nice R2 is, I really want the set now, but an R5-D4 would be appreciated next time just because.

I  just  got  my  R4-P17,  and  R2-Q5  and  I'm  really  glad  I  ordered  them.  Paint  apps  on  each  are  excellent  as  are  the  surface  details,  and  yes  all  3  have  their  own  frequencies,  Let  the  droid  races begin!

I imagine they don't have different "voices" than the RC R2?
