As I said in the X-Wing thread, I think it would be really ****** for them to stick that sculpt in with a $45 rehashed vehicle, instead of putting it in the basic line--where they've reused the inferior VOTC sculpt several times.

OK, then.  I guess you'll be happy to sit back and wait for Hasbro to release him as a basic figure... eventually... someday.

What choice do I have but to wait?  I bought an extra R4-G9 when the Sneak Preview wave came out last year, with the intent of repainting it into Artoo, and the end result was so terrible, it looked like I had a massive seizure during the repainting process.  In other words, not good.  So yeah, I'll wait.

I just wish they'd quit using that repainted version in their publicity photos.  That's twice now they've done it, and then changed it in the production version.  It's getting my hopes up.
