Hasbro really has no excuse for not making a great (or good even) R5-D4 yet...
They have to be coming out with one in 2004, but when will it be confirmed? This is LONG overdue.
Don't think you'll get any disagreement with that assesment Pat! I think one reason for the delay in finally getting a new R5, was the R5 droid that was offered in the Star Tours line. I'm guessing they're trying to space the distribution of R5 out a little more, which sucks since most people don't have access to the Star Tours droids, not to mention they cost TWICE as much as standard carded Saga figures.
And I just know all the customizers out there are just chompin' at the bit to get a decent and affordable R5 droid on the market...
As for R1-G4, yeah - it's a great figure! Finally managed to find a couple extras of him this morning actually, after more than a month since I last saw any. I was a little concerned about it's heighth initially (lack of), but several people pointed out that it was pretty accurate, so that's cool!
Now just give me a damned Sandcrawler
to stick him in front of dammit!
