WF Summer 2011? Carded ChromeDome R2
« on: June 19, 2011, 03:42 PM »
There is some chatter over at Kubrick Nation of a possible carded R2-D2 figure with chrome dome.  Not happy about yet another re-release from Medicom, but happy to get a possible nod to the vintage R2 with the shiny head.  What would really be cool is if the head spins and makes the 'clicking' noise...

Yeah I spotted that too and have the same feeling towards Medicoms current strategy with re-releases. Sadly I doubt the head will click and if I get one I won't find out!  ;D I'll leave that to the carded barbarians...  :P

Yeah I like this one a lot. He'll make a nice partner for removable limbs C-3PO.

From j.me:


Supposed to be at the Summer WonderFest (July 24th?).  I haven't seen any sort of official confirmation from Medicom yet, but it very well could be scheduled to be included in the update this month...

Yeah I decided to get this but I always go SAL shipping with Tokyo Hunter. I've never had any trouble and the figures always arrive in good condition and quicker than you'd expect. The total cost would be 3580 yen with SAL shipping to North America.

Well it's confirmed on Medicom's website. No other updates Star Wars-wise or otherwise.
