...btw. Speaking of which, why the cough with the white version...  ???

I initially didn't include the all-white verison in my second "other droids" pic, then went back and updated the pic to include it after I saw Symposium's message.  Mainly for completeness, but also to sneakily avoid the fact that he was pointing out my oversight (and to jokingly get a rise out of him...  ;)  Sorry for the confusion.

EDIT: Symposium, ya beat me to it.   >:(  ;D

Preordering already for a November sale eh. The price is good tho but if something happens to the seller then you will be SOL with Paypal.

Yeah I certainly wouldn't buy anything pre-order on ebay. I hope that price is the norm come official release day.

Japan pre-order at Blister.jp

They are charging 2500Yen = $26.40 USD

That's a real good sign that we won't be seeing $150 eBay prices (hopefully).

I think this new C-3PO is more of a yellow gold color versus series 3's green/gold color.

Interesting, I hadn't really noted the green tinge before but I'll have to look more closely.  Usually watching for Medicom to do some sort of obscure vintage nod, but if it has the greenish tinge, then it is like the Japanese POTF2 release of the "green" C-3PO.  Cool.

Hmmn...I am probably up for this set depending on cost.  I still don't have the Early Bird set.   :P

This is good news to see, HLJ has the C-3PO & R2-D2 2pcs set up on the site for 2,980 yen or about $32.15 US & about $37.10 CDN.

Please note:  HobbyLink Japan will begin accepting regular preorders for this item on or about September 1.

Is $28USD a reasonable price for a pre-order for this 2pc set (this does not include shipping )? Apart from HLJ were else can you place an order

Yes, $28. is a good price. I have not seen any other place yet for preorder.

Late edit: BBTS has this set up for preoeder for $37.99.

I pre-ordered this one.  I've had pretty good luck with BBTS up to this point so no reason not to pre-order this one.  I can live with the additional $ they are charging over HLJ.

Well, now that I bought the EB set I'm not so sure I want to spend the dough on these.  Might wait to see what NCSX or HLJ can offer later this fall.

These two are different from their previous releases though. You wouldn't want an incomplete set now would you?  >:D
