Guess it took you quite a while, but good score on the ol' Beru figure Neil!  She's one of my favorites from the POTF2 line as well!  Probably 'cause she's one of those characters that was never produced in the vintage line, so the added wait for her made it that much more satisfying when she finally arrived.  As well as the fact that she came with the cool (again never-before-made) Treadwell Droid, along with the trademark Blue Milk!   8)

Great figure, so I'm glad you finally tracked her down!  Now hopefully Hasbro will resculpt her Uncle Owen counterpart, 'cause that one from the Purchase of the Droids Cinema Scene 3-pack really sucked!  Give the lady a new (blue) milk man, eh?!   :-*

That entire "Flashback" line for POTF 2 was something great. Kind of like a precursor to the POTJ + Episode 1 lines, cuz although they were mass produced, Ep. 1 did make a few monumental figures,sculpt wise.

Beru's got that cool service droid too.

I know that feeling well!  I wasn't going to collect any POTJ figures until I saw that they were making R2-Q5.

In the hopes of getting this new droid, I went to store after store, day after day.  Each time, I was coming home with different POTJ figures that weren't the all elusive droid.  The droid got me into POTJ, but I couldn't find him anywhere!

Finally, with the Zutton wave out, I caved and bought Tessek, Lando, Jar Jar, and R2-Q5 on eBay.  The anticipation was great, and when he finally arrived, I rejoiced.

Bravo Barfly.
