spacejunker from the So Cal thread said he bought one for $70 plus tax at Costco.

I haven't got the ROTS one yet but I think it does the same as the original version, same droid.

These links will help you out on what he can do.  ;)

Anyone have a link to the instructions for assembly?  I need to disassemble mine and don't want to break the legs.  Owner's manual?  Huh, wha dat? ( or more like where dat)

I'm not sure if you can take them off once they're on.  There's tabs that pop into place that couldn't be popped back out unless you could get to them from the inside somehow...

I got one for Christmas (even though I already had the Saga version), so I've got the instructions laying out at home right now.  I'll check it out when I get back from Arizona and let you know if there's anything in there about potentially removing the legs, Brent.

Fun little sucker though!  Gotta program him to bring me a beer across the house next.  That'll be too cool.  8)

Thanks Matt.

Yeah Dale, I looked at that page briefly.  I didn't dig around much mostly because it looked like it was just instructions as to how to use the droid once assembled and powered up.  I'll dig a little deeper later, but I may need other help. 

I'm hoping you can get them off somehow, otherwise he won't go back in the box correctly.  It's not a huge deal because I'm not selling him, but I would like to pack him properly for moving.

The legs do come off but you have to be very, very careful. There are tabs that hold the legs in place & you can break them. Some force maybe required to do so & you will hear a loud snap when you do. I had a heck of a time with mine but it worked out OK, just took a bit of time.

Sorry for lagging, but I finally scoped out the rest of the instructions, and there ain't squat about removing the legs - only putting them on.  I'd say don't try to snap them off, or you'll break the tabs and they won't stay on any longer.  The only thing I might suggest is to figure out if there's a way of opening the whole thing up so you could get at those tabs from the inside, and squeeze them in so you could safely remove the legs without breaking them.  Otherwise, R2 should probably just remain assembled!

Thanks Matt.  R2's been sitting here just waiting for word.  He may be transported whole.  Better that than broken.

To anyone that missed this thing at their local BJ's/Sam's Club/Costco over Christmas - you're in luck!

The Interactive R2-D2 (in the RotS themed box) is now IN-STOCK over at the HasbroToyShop.

$80 plus shipping isn't a bad deal compared to what the original version sells for on eBay.
