The R2 is pretty nice for a repaint too. Makes a nice Tatooine specific R2.  3po blows to be honest but I have a hard time liking any without vac metal.

While checking some things at EE today, I noticed that the status of the former TRU exclusive C3PO/R2D2 2-pack has been changed to Cancelled

I'll be a bit disappointed if the status change is true - I didn't really need another 5POA C3PO or R2D2 figure but it's a sad omen for EE's ability to rescue things from the scrap heap in the future.  Also makes me wonder if the variant A-Wing is going to end up cancelled too?

While it slipped through EE's fingers, the Threepio/Artoo pack has been on Amazon for $14.99. I have been hemming and hawing about pulling the trigger for a month now.

And now I am even more undecided. The window may be closing, but Jesse confirms the nonvac Threepio is turdtastic...

I just donít like the dull look and other little stuff bugs me but to me R2 was worth the set...  BAD and Tatooine specific.  3PO just is there.  I like the old pull apart 3po from potf2 FF that had the same dirty look to it and I think a restraining bolt too.

I'm still hoping that last Solo wave can make it out somewhere.  I got a few scraps on HTS.com, but I'm not sure it ever hit retail and EE seems to struggle to get it in stock.  Quay Tolsite is selling for $50 on Amazon/eBay.

I paid almost $25 for one a few months ago... I was so sure you'd all be finding him at the dollar store a week later.   :(

I saw Rio, Val and Mimban Han at retail at one Meijer.  Was that the last wave? They still had Val last week.

I found the C-3PO & R2-D2 2-pack listed on Amazon for $14.99.  I had ordered that set at EE, but it's currently listed on backorder.  So I'm going to cancel the EE order and I ordered it on Amazon.

The ever-sliding delivery dates on the A-wing, TLJ multipack and Clone Trooper have been frustrating, to say the least.

It hit Walmart here, and I picked up a full set except Han Mud.  I got seconds at HTS then to try customizing them into better figures some day but that was all I ever saw really one and done.

Thanks for the heads up... I just canceled my EE order and bought it off Amazon... saved me $8 in shipping too.

Saw the TRU C-3PO/R2 set at Ross today for $6.99. A good option to check for those who donít have and want this set

For some reason, despite the galaxy of 3POs and R2s I have, I really want this set.
