Thatís awe fully generous of you Paul.  I have friends down that way this week actually so Iíll just say thanks but for others on the fence the last one has become a B to get cheap I believe.  Should take Paul up on it.

Mine was just delivered in the last 30 min. Still hasn't grown on me.

When the images first hit the 'net, something looked off. Sure enough, a quick google turned up pics showing the orange and yellow are reversed in the candy.

I can't imagine this being an issue with intellectual property. Did someone go with their recollection and not do their homework? There are images of Alton Brown's homemade candy corn, which have the same color sequence as the droid. So maybe the nod the chef? Or just creative license?

And in the vastness of Google i came across... Christmas candy corn?! Yup. White, green, red. Who would've thunk?

We leave to go down tomorrow, I have 2 I'm picking up for sure. If anybody changes their mind let me know. 

Also going to ask about some stuff Jesse wants to know about.  So maybe some insider scoop when I get back.

Got mine the other day.  Awful. 

It'll go in to the corner of my figure display that contains the handful of "what the hell was Hasbro/Disney thinking" figures that just don't fit with everything else.
