If you've always wanted a clear R2-D2, today's the day - go get one. It's pricey, but unfortunately that tends to happen with event figures until people get sick of them and prices drop - which we saw happened with a lot of the silver figures from 2002-2005. I don't know what the future holds for this one, but if you can get it cheap it's neat enough to be worthwhile.
Collector's Notes: I got this from eBay. It was a Star Wars Weekends Orlando item. $20 shipped - admittedly not cheap, but if you don't feel like paying to park at a Disney thing it's a pretty decent price.
