A few of these just hit the bay- I picked up a $19.99 BIN with $16 shipping-  ;D

They arrived today in excellent shape. For those in Canada, he had put $1 on the customs form, which may save you a few bucks as well-   ;)

The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

My set has been waiting for a couple of days at the post office, and I was able to pick it up today. As discused earlyer  in the thread this new one has a more pronounced gold color, and the pupils are noticeably smaller.

Got my 2pk in the mail yesterday as well.  Pretty cool looking set.  Someone might have addressed this earlier, but the wires on R2's legs are also different colored from the EB R2.  EB R2's are neon yellow, while these are more of an orange/brown.  Its cool to have the variations, but you're not missing much if you have the prior versions of these two in my opinion.  I think the coolest thing about the set is the cool little premium black box they come in.  I might actually leave these two in the package and just put the package up on the wall for display.

Except for the 3rd leg on R2 of course.

Received my 3PO & R2 Set.  Looks very nice.  Glad to not have spent a lot of them though.

You mean the lack of a 3rd leg, right?  I like the EB 3-leg version better than 2-leg, but you're right - that is a noticable difference.  Damnit Jay, you're going to get me to open this 2pk aren't you?   >:(

I was tempted to buy this set just for the 2-legged R2-D2, but then I remembered that the upcoming Jabba Sail Barge R2-D2 is the same 2-legged R2 with a new head/bar rack.  I figure having that one when it comes out will be close enough for me.   ;)

I'd love it, if it ever happened around here.  I'm waiting on my R2/3PO and three other packages but no mail either yesterday or today and I'm doubting our mail carrier is going to work on New Year's Eve either.  ::)

Is your mailman on strike or is that just the normal Canadian timetable for mail right now?
