R2-D2 (Droid Factory Flight)
« on: March 26, 2003, 06:56 PM »
This will be a short & simple review here.  I think this figure is pretty pathetic.  The dome on this is a dull dark gray color... it's not silver or chrome looking!  It doesn't even have a metallic finish to it.  At least Hasbro did a decent job on the first Saga R2-D2 figure they made.  His legs aren't articulated so you can't pose him in a "moving" position.  I'm not even going to waste my time on this figure, but it's a big disappointment.

If I still had a BB gun I think I'd use this for target practice... seriously.

Hey, I resent that remark Brad!  :P   ;)

Care to rub it in even more for those of us who are so insane that we are both Carded AND Loose completist collectors?  I have to buy TWO of these pieces of GARBAGE!!!   ::)   ;D

All I can hope from this is that some poor sap that works for Hasbro reads this post I started.  This is the absolutel crappiest astromech droid I have ever seen, with that POTF2 R5-D4 (w/rocket launcher) in a close second place.

I'm still not liking this figure.  I showed one of my good friends this figure (who also collects Star Wars items), and he hates this figure.

Why Hasbro, why????????????????

I think that if they would change the dome to a metallic, make the legs articulated this would actually be a sweet figure, but right now a PVC pipe is better than this!

You're right about that, but that would involve re-designing the entire figure.  Hasbro wouldn't dare make this figure better than it already is.    <enormous amount of sarcasm>
