Podracer flags anyone?  8)

OK, didn't think so, but gotta ask the experts.

OK, so the topic of the R2-A6/R2-N3 switcheroo came up at lunch today.  Does anyone have a definitive list of the astromechs on the Queen's ship?  A cursory check of the Star Wars Wiki says there were at least seven...

These were blasted while escaping from Naboo:  R2-B1, R2-R9, G8-R3, and R2-N3

And these survived the ship's escape from Naboo:  R2-D2, R2-C4, R2-M5

I think there is one more (the wiki entry for the Queen's ship says it can hold eight), but neither of us could remember which that eighth one was...  ???

And what are the chances that LFL will retcon the roles of R2-C4 and R2-M5 on the starship in order to sell us two more, similar colored astromechs? :P

Check halfway down...the first pic shows a white body black/blue trimmed on one side and an dark green one on the other...the next pic shows them being missing and the green one being replaced with R2-M5

There could be a white and black one too or it is just a bad photo of R2-N3.

I wouldn't be to hard to make one. Just swap heads with the otc correscant pilot and jar jar. Turn jar jar head into a hat and your done. I think Glassman made one like that once.

Thanks Scott.  Looks like I have a couple new droids to add to my TPM Wishlist this year... :)

\Me too, both are really nice. The Mos Espa Arena is actually pretty nice upgrades with deco. they even retooled Anakins hands to have turning wrists. Plus you complete the flag "official" collection....

I'm thinking I may buy the droids...  I can't honestly see plunking the cash down on the podracers though, but the droids have sort of wooed me.

The POTJ Anakin's wrists always turned.  ;)

I got rid of him eons ago, I honestly forgot. I can say all of the decos are superior to the older ones in the Mos Espa set. I compared them all last night sans Anakin  ;) . The deco on him looks good enough to be the standard Anakin until MH W2, the new rubbery pod helmet fits really nice. Sebulba has better paint ops , really noticable when you remove the helmet, naked 3-P0 also sports a more accurate paint job. The Pit Droids are bonus fodder and who can forget the friggin flags. I was happy enough with both sets as I ditched most of my EP1 crap a long, long time ago. When you see them in person it might be enough to sway you.
