TOMY Remote Control R2-D2 at SWS.com
« on: June 28, 2005, 05:07 PM »
Up for pre-order at SWS.com Tomy Exclusive Remote Control R2-D2 Action Figure.

As of now it is only available for Hyperspace members.  I ordered me some, as these look pretty cool and fun.  They will be available to the general public July 1 st, if they don't sell out.

Cool.  Thanks for the head's up, Ricardo!  Just placed my order for a couple.  One less headache that I was expecting to deal with since that was a Japanese item.  Nice to see SWS.com step up to the plate and give the non-Japanese collectors a shot at this one...  8)

BTW, I'm moving this over to the regular figure forum, since it's a standard sized figure.  ;)

That is cool they are offering them this way.
I have a few ordered from another source, but I like that are offering
these to the US.
I wonder if Kubs will get a shot on there now!
How much is shipping for R2, BTW?

It looks like I'd better rip open my Early Bird Set so that I can get the free 3-month Hyperspace membership to order one.

Dammit, much cheaper than the place I ordered from, but the delivery date looks to be a matter of several weeks later through SWS. I can't wait for this lil guy.

I've got some coming from Japan, but if anyone wants to order an extra, I don't think I'd be too put out to have one more.  I've been wanting this thing since Jeff mentioned it at C3.  Looks awfully nice and I'd be happy to own several.   8)

Hah, I'd like to Jared...

Won't do it, but I'd like to.

I think this is great...  Nice to see something that has had a bit of buzz being offered for an ok price.  I'll definitely nab one even though it technically does stray outside what I'd normally buy.  I love the concept and can't wait to nab one.  Saw someone do an RC Custom droid once a while back with small RC modules...  Pretty neat.

I ordered one. Its pretty cool. Normally i would have passed but since its in the figure scale, i have no choice but to consider it a figure, so i had to buy it.  ;D Thats my story and i am sticking to it.

Uggh, I always succumb to peer pressure, I think I'll order one.

Junior might get a kick out of it and then my wife won't be so angry at yet another box waiting on the doorstep.

Since the R2 is scaled to match the Hasbro action figure line - I could NOT pass this one up! I'm really happy that the shop.starwars.com has offered this up so you can easily obtain one in the US.

I ordered two of them since I'll definitely want to open one up and play with it, my two little kitties will be driven nuts by the thing!
