not entirely unprecedented for this sort of inspiration to take place in the toy business.
First up: the early samples of this set had carved markings in the domes to indicate they were early samples. Final production do not feature these disfiguring marks.
Vintage R2-D2 [FOTD #1,961] - a mold I never would have guessed had so much potential. There are a number of red panels and a glossy black eye, plus some gold bits that match the harness quite nicely. I love the deco overall, but the panel on the sensorscope doesn't quite match the rest of the white dome. On one hand, it sticks out - on the other, at least you know where the pop-out part is.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth, where it is an exclusive. I work there and was heavily involved with this exclusive... so please do buy a set.
