borrrring. This line seems too new to be running out of good ideas. They hit some home runs with blue snowtrooper, amanaman, blue snaggletooth, and several others. But the re-release mode seems premature. I sure hope there is an update on DX3 this month. I'm itching to add a garindan to the tatooine scene, but very tempted to dump my box order and just get a 6 off the bay.

Technically this isn't a re-release. He has a Chrome Dome! and is far better than anything they've painted blue then re-released.

I think its interesting enough to get for for $30-40.  Beyond that, I just really don't need yet another character that I already have multiples of even if he does have a shiny new dome.

Now in stock at BBTS.com, for $40.

Just got notice from Big Bad that mine shipped today.    ;D

I'm not overly excited about $47 shipped for another R2, but that was much cheaper than anything I found on Ebay.  This will help offset some of my Deluxe Series 3 Non-Chase blues...

R2 Arrived over lunch today.  Much as I don't feel like I don't need another R2, I really like the shiny dome.  I'm a little bummed about a big bend in the card, but I think I would have opened this one up anyway.

Despite my earlier griping, I decided to get this from BBTS too. At $40, it looks like a steal compared to DX chases. Now I have to decide if I want to track down the shiny C-3PO as well  :-\ .

The horizontal hash marks on his body are painted silver, where they were left white on the 2-pack version. The early bird version has them painted gray rather than silver (along with the other areas).

I did an ebay search for carded kubrick acrylic cases, but came up empty. Does anyone know if Oscar still make these?

I watch for them every once in a while, but they are rare to find on the bay.  I am going to open mine up.  If anyone sees JL cases I need a few more for.my dlx now...
