Disney Exclusive Jedi Mickey Mouse & R2-MK 2-Pack
« on: January 19, 2010, 01:00 AM »
From StarWars.com:

"This spring, visitors to Disney Parks in Florida and California will be able to pick up an exclusive new Hasbro astromech R2 unit, decked out in classic Mickey Mouse colors and ears!"

The Disney Exclusive Jedi Mickey Mouse & R2-MK 2-Pack will retail for $18.95 and should hit the parks in April 2010.

It'd be cool to know if the ears came off.  If they did, it'd be a wild paintjob for an astromech.

Incrediablly lame. I guess this is the droid they show on imagineer's desk that is working on Star Tours 2. I too would remove the ears. According to the EndorExpress.net, the ears are removeable.

I think it's okay, and even better knowing the ears are removable.  It's the $20 price tag I'm not a fan of.  I get exclusives cost more, but what kind of profit are they making on this?  800%?  I'm a little tired of paying ridiculous prices for exclusives, especially when it's a half-sized figure with almost no articulation.  Unless the price comes down, it's an easy pass for me.

Is it just me or does that R2 make you think McDonald's? McR2 anyone?

This is the post where I shamelessly beg someone to help me get two of these for my collection.   :D

Kinda lame IMO - but I'm diggin the droid if the ears are in fact removable.  Way too expensive though, but it's Disney so yeah...

I to want the droid (and just the droid) if the ears are removable.

I wonder if Hasbro is in error-- on the JD Q&A this week, Hasbro says it's not their figure, but the official site explicitly states it is a Hasbro product, the droid is clearly a Hasbro mold, and the previous Jedi Mickey & Yoda set (which I have on my desk) is labeled Hasbro.  (So I wonder if Hasbro's brand is slapped on Disney items or what.)

Yeah, wth?  The droid is awesome and clearly an action figure and not a ceramic statue or something.  I need that droid!

Nice, I just got back from Disney, too bad about the timing, this would have been fun to pick up.  I wonder what the distribution for this would be like in the parks (some Star Wars/Disney stuff you can find throughout the parks and hotels, but other stuff you can only get outside Star Tours).  Maybe I'll be able to convince my parents to take a ride over to Downtown Disney and go through the toy store they have (its basically all Hasbro stuff...)

I went there over break (I am a teacher) and I kid you not all they had were 2 pegs full of Yarna and a peg filled with Leia/Xizor comic packs.

Yup.  And the basic figs were $9.99 if I recall (or was it $11.99?).  They did have the whole line of Disney themed Star Wars characters though.  I can't recall all of them but I bought the Chip and Dale as Ewoks set.  I think Donald was a Stormtrooper, Goofy was Vader, etc.  So hopefully the McR2 :) will be easy to find.
