I couldn't tell by Scum's photo.  Thanks Jayson, as I see it now.  It's nowhere near where it needs to be in terms of grime though, so I'll stick with the last one as my R5.  Plus the motivator is still fun, if not a little annoying when you want the head turned but no motivator jutting out.  :-\

The newer one just looks cheap to me, like some kind of Happy Meal toy. I know it reuses the BAD parts and easily comes apart so maybe that's why. Honestly I bet we get a "redone" R5-D4 in a few years since they redid the R2-D2 mold (and it's a fine mold, IMO, although I would like to see some slight mods for a "normal" rerelease).

But yeah, I'm sticking with the 2006 version.

This particular droid always ominously reminds me of the dreadful rocket launcing R5 - ughhh. 

The original vintage version was better than that abomination and at least this new rendition isn't 'gimmicky' although all of this is a gimmick.
