The right hand doesn't know what the left is doing!  ;)

It would be nice to get some coordination between the two, especially if we're going to get really deep dives on some of these characters. This is the second instance lately where Disney did a Hasbro droid at the same time (RO droid being the other) and in both cases, for me anyways, it negates some of the impetus to buy the Hasbro sets they're in.

Oh, well. Clone Wars droids!  ;D

This seems amazingly stupid that they would both release the same droid with such a wacky paint job.  They're different sculpts of the same droid with similar paint jobs.

Is it too hard to come up with a unique paint job, or coordinate between the handful of vendors that have their own exclusives?  Hard to tell if this is intentional, laziness, or just incompetence.

I'll end up buying the set for the other three, but its unnecessarily painful to have to re-buy this droid we already have.
