Is there anything different about that R2 from the early bird version?

The body looks different to me, but overall it looks pretty similar.  Not a great addition for us old timers, but I suppose a lot of people don't have that early bird set.

Originally I thought it was a different decal/sticker design for his body, but on closer inspection that doesn't seem to be the case. So the only difference I see are the brown coils on his feet, which on the early bird edition are yellow.

Excellent - I really like the way it went this time around versus the last two waves of deluxe.

Look at how smug R2 looks in that picture... "Own me already? Too bad. [assorted beeps]"  :P

Can't decide if I'd want that background card or not. It definitely looks cool and I like the simplicity, but I also don't know if I'd want to pay a lot for something I could quickly make an exact copy of  in Illustrator. Would've liked to see what kind of Death Star scene they could've painted, ie. the docking bay, control room etc.

So the R2 is a chromed head version of the 3-legged version right?

Hmmmm...chase guesses anyone?

I like the idea that one is an Imperial Officer...Piett, Motti, Death Squad Commander etc
The other one is tougher to say because most of the DS stuff is already done...maybe one of the other rebel commanders like Dodonna or Madine are a possibility

Boy there are going to be a lot of Imp Dignitaries on eBay.  :P He should have been a chase IMHO.

My guesses:

Motti or Janus Greejatus in Dignitary box
Porkins or Biggs in TIE Fighter Pilot box

This is an odd set with the probot as the chase.  I wonder if one of them will be from outside the DS.  I'd like to go easy and suggest an alternate dignitary, but I'm going to go big on these:

Vintage Death Squad Commander in the Vader box
Dutch Vander (Gold Leader) in TIE Pilot box

Pretty sure there was a Hasbro wave that included TIE Pilot, Antilles, and Dutch...seems like they've partly copied earlier Hasbro waves for some of these releases.  I would love to see what they can do with the old DS Commander - that would instantly be one of my all time favorite Kubes.

Good guess about a possible Vintage DS Commander. I hope it isn't though as these chase prices are redonkulous.

How 'bout this guy as a chase?

I think there is zero chance of a deleted scene figure.  Never say never I guess, but I don't see it happening.

Jay - did you ever end up with a basic set of 6?

How about making the chases worth more than $500 this time around...
