Thanks for the news.  That is my all time favorite action figure from when I was a kid and still to this day.  I can't wait.

Q4 of which year?  They have a LOT of stuff in the pipeline right now - I can't see this realistically coming out before 2013 unless they can find a way to significantly pick up the pace.

If they are anything like Sideshow, they'll bombard you with product (and charges) at the end of the year, right around the holidays.  :P

I wonder how its click-click-click noise will sound at this scale?  R2 and R5 also clicked anyone know how similar that was in Jumbo scale?

I'd imagine pretty similar as, for the most part, the mechanism works exactly the same...  plastic tap against a gear.

Jut got lucky and grabbed a new open preorder for the Power Droid at BBTS.  Someone must have cancelled theirs.  I've been checking for awhile and until today they have been sold out of preorders.

Today, I received the Power Droid I ordered from redfordfilms.com for $80.99 shipped.  I wish I had preordered through GG because those shipped long before other online retailers.

When I was a kid, and to this day, the Power Droid was my favorite Kenner figure.  Here's mine on display with an original. 

The stickers are nice on the Jumbo Power Droid I rceived except for a small corner on the front sticker.  At least it's not crooked.

Finally got my PD in the mail today.  Another awesome figure to see in such a huge scale.
