So is this R2 different from all the other beeping R2s? New paint? New sculpt?

If only they'd include a Leia or Luke Hologram and some phrases from them.

It is the same electronic sculpt as prior electronic versions but he does have new sounds. And there are in fact 32 different fx.

I'm easily still passing on this, but having many phrases is at least kind of nice/neat since the technology has evolved since that first figure.

Found a red variant of the MH Battle Droid today at TRU.  For anyone that cares.

Saw Movie Heroes crap... and wow, do I mean crap.

What a dismal sight those are on the pegs.  And the paintjobs.  Oh lord are they terrible on some of those figures.

My TRU has the MH carded one hanging on the pegs for 9.99, and still has a few of the Saga Legends 2 packs for less than that.

It's pretty sad when a store has the same figure on different cards marked at two different prices and neither one will sell.

The scary thing is that most of these figures were considered terrible back when they were originally released ten years ago!

This line is clogging up the pegs at 3 Wal-Marts I went to yesterday.  So, frustrating.

My local Target had the TPM endcap set up yesterday...  four pegs for Vintage, four pegs for Clone Wars, and eight pegs for Movie Heroes.  Shouldn't be too long before the four CW pegs are filled up with MH stuff too.  :P

This line is clogging the pegs at every store I go to (x4 WM's, x2 TRUs, x4 Targets and a K-Mart). The Battle Droid is mind boggling. They are already shipping Obi and qui on both cards why not the new BD sculpt? I know everyone this it's ovepriced but at least it would have been a step more tolerable instead of the ancient one. I would have bought alot of them if it was the new sculpt as I am upgrading my army.

They really should have had Wave 2 start this line, once I know the case breakdown I will probally order one as I want every one from Wave 2. I have no EP1 JJ's or the Palace Amidala in my collection.

Yeah, basically same dealie here...  went out tonight and Movie Heroes is stinking up the joint.

Someone should put up Slippery When Poopy signs around any Movie Heroes display because that's some crap.

Same here. Movie Heroes... Movie Heroes Everywhere.

It's mind boggling too because these were figures that were considered mega-crappy back when they were originally released... I mean, did ANYBODY buy that Maul for any reason other than the cool metal double saber it came with? I think that Vader originally came with a cool Cloud City platform piece. Now you get a die and a card.
