Anthony, yep, I'll be driving down on Friday morning!

I just got an e-mail notification that my case is reasy to pick up.

Got mine as well. So it looks like EE is the first destination for Friday. Have some returns to do there as well.

I went ahead and ordered one set today, don't know why I did, the price is just ridiculous.  I guess they will look cool in various dioramas.

 :P

I would LOVE to buy those sets but yeah it's just too much mula for me to spend on astromechs.  Oh well.

Picked my sets up and popped them open. It's just cool and exciting to see the different paint schemes. Bigg's Droids paint scheme is off though, as is the imperial R3 unit, I think.

Aside from a bunch of R5 unit's, I think we got all the major film canon Astromechs, don't we?

Well, I guess EE finally worked their way up the food chain to the "mega-sized" orders like mine.  :P

I got my shipping notice today, so my four cases of Astromechs are finally on their way and should be here next week!

Holy Crapola man.

Jeff, should a spot open up on your end, someone I know is out a set and needs them.  I have two sets for me and someone else lined up, but I just got a note about this so if something should come up, just let me know.

My sets are from BBTS I think, I believe that's where the local guy handling it ordered from anyway, so there's been a longer wait on ours locally.  I sorta hope soon but I wouldn't mind if it went till March at this point, from my own financial standpoint, hah.

I wish these things were a bit cheaper.  I would love to pick up another set.

There are a few Astromechs not made yet.  Not counting the 6+ R5 units (Orange Mos Eisley, Red Leaders, Echo Base, Imperial, Naboo Royal Starship, Jabba's Boonta)

There are a couple of R2's and R3's


R2-G2

 
R2-A5


R3-O1

I'd love another 10 pack of these with the R5's and the remaining Droids

Got my Astrodroids today!  ;D
my son and I are very happy with them, half have the retractable middle leg activated by twisting the droid head, the others youhave manually push/pull the middle leg up or down.
very cool indeed!!!

Wow.  Where did that picture of  R2-G2 come from?  I have never seen that photo before, and I've seen them all!  (Well, not all.)  Very cool.

Ive seen that pic and others at http://www.astromech.net
they have bunches of refrences photos of many droids as well as its own collecting and R2 building group from the looks  of it.
That's how my son and I figured out which droid is which.

Wow. You know, Chewie, Red5sixx would give these to you at a better price than EE's retail...and since you're going to take them out, he'd probably ship them loose and save you on shipping costs.

I'd cancel your EE order and hit up Red5sixx.

I'm sure this will be a tough order to fill, but if anyone is interested in selling just the OT astromechs, I'd buy them with interest for the trouble.  Please lmk if there is anyone willing to!
