It's a fake. All of the ones around here were red R2 units, but most of the boxes were opened with the R2 missing. >:(

I think that the window box was the reason for so many of the thefts. Remember the POTF2 AT-AT and the two exclusive figures? That was a box with just one opening allowing you to sample the electronics. There was no way that you could get the figures out of that box so easily. Just my $0.02.

I will reitterate what everyone else has already said...
THIS DID NOT EXIST, EVER!
A variant like this would have been huge with a lot of collectors of MISB stuff.

What a dirty trick!
After reading alot of these stories the people I feel for are the people who would not know what droid colour it should be, the people that spring to mind are the parents of young collectors or present buyers who do not collect themselves.
I think this practice is disgusting.

At least the person replaced the red R2 with another droid. I saw several where the window was slashed and the droid missing.
