I'm leaning towards skipping that first R2 as well, along with spinning Yoda and the battle/super/destroyer droids...I don't need anymore of those. Other than that, I'm pretty much all in on the basic figures I think, at least depending on funds. My main problem is trying to figure out what to pick up on that first day (we haven't seen leaks around here). For AOTC, I basically bought everything that night, only leaving a couple figures I didn't think I'd have any problems finding later (and didn't). This time, there's a lot more to go around, so it might get a bit pricey. We'll have to see, but I do agree, overall the line just looks outstanding. That poster (from Insider I believe) of the "full 56" really makes all the figures look great...even if not all of them end up being quite that spiffy in person.
