Rob - how did you get free shipping?

Just curious.



It wasn't free.  I ordered 3 Wedge figures from them on the same ticket and was charged the entire shipping amount when the Wedges shipped.

I sorta hope for a set with all the R5's now that they'll have that dome...  I think it'll be hard to get just one set of just R5's though but man they have catching up to do on that model considering it's just now gonna get a nice new dome.

If they don't do the red/black rebel pilot R5 unit, I just don't know how I'm gonna paint one up myself...  So I'm being greedy and just hoping for R5's at some point in a set like this.

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


I got my mega-order of Astromechs yesterday and I totally agree - I'd be all in on another couple of 5-packs to get some R5s and a few more of the left-over R2 units.   :)

For some reason, the dark Astromechs really stand out as great droids.   The Queen's/Naboo Droids are all a little too "R2-D2-ish" in appearance, varying only in primary color, but the two droids with the totally different dark paint schemes really pop.

The R3 droids with the clear domes aren't quite as nice paint-wise as the previous 2 (Sneak Preview and Hoth Battle set).  Still pretty cool to have though.

I didn't order any of these yet, mainly because I kind of have to budget out my spending each month and wasn't sure if I could afford them.  Every time I see pics online of them and hear people's comments though, it gets more and more tempting to get a set.  Always nice to have a whole mess o' astromechs on display :).

I got my set the other day and I have to say that overall, I am extremely pleased with these (might even be more pleased than some of the clones). I love the dark clones and my son has already thought of ways to use the one that might be a spy that was flying with Biggs.

With these being an Exclusive.
It would of been nice if some of them came with data links, flip out arms, saws, sensorscopes and ect.
Or is R2-D2 the James Bond of AstroDroids... ;D

But, I'm looking into getting them...Anyways, I hope!

These really are nice sets for what they are (repaints).

I almost flipped out when I removed the white mailer from the set with the black droid.  He was packaged "backwards" and I thought he was missing the silver secondary paint that is on the front!

My 3 year old couldn't wait to open them, he thought they were all infrared controlled like the TOMY version I let him play with!

Well supposedly Anakin has made "modifications" to R2-D2.  So, he may really be the James Bond of Astromech droids :) 
I saw some group shots at Rebelscum.  It kills me but I just can't plunk down the money for these as cool as they are.  Maybe someday.  I also need to get that imperial droid from the Empire set someday.  I am way behind on astromechs now.

Check with Red5sixx- he was so cool to sell me just the OT astromechs I wanted.  He might be able to sell you those!

I'm sure this information exists somewhere in this thread, but I was trying to figure out which droid went with which scene and in which movie and I found this site:

It was very helpful.

These droids are super-cool! Thanks again for being the local distributor Jeff!

I wish there was more than 1 imperial though... My display space is limited, and I can only have so many dioramas set up at a time. I need more "bad" droids for my death star.

my sons favorites are the black and gray ones plus thw two conehead R4s in red and orange. We've found most of the droids on the dvds except the orange r4 who is suppossed by in or near dexters diner.
now that we're getting a decent r5-d4 we can hope for some repaint variants sometime or another.

One thing that bugs me is Hasbro calling some droids Imperial.  There was the R4 from the Imperial TRU pack, which is not an Imp despite his black/blue color.  He was in the Yavin hangar rolling behind Han and Chewie while they were packing up.  Then, R2-Q2 and R4-M9, both called Imperials, when they are both seen in Rebel areas such as Yavin hangar and Hoth hangar, respectively.  Did anyone think, when seeing them rolling down the Tantive corridor in front of the captured rebel troops, that they were Imperial?  I've always assumed those 2 were "marching" just like the captured troops.  Isn't that an easier explanation, seeing how we see them later as rebels (or some identical to them)?

Thanks for that Rob.  Here is perhaps the best astromech reference I've see:
