I would argue R5-P8 doesn't match his animation model colors, and that this one definitely doesn't match - the back of the box has an illustration where the dome matches his panel colors, and they're super white. The blue plastic seems to be a close match to the body in some shots, but not in others, so I'd say that was a success. The black eyes and unique white panel placement seems to match quite nicely, so this is one of those droid designs that wouldn't necessarily mean Hasbro couldn't do a more accurate one later. They won't, given how many droids we get these days, and I would say the top of the dome is also incorrect - the show has a silver stripe around the top, while the toy has a blue one. On the bright side, this could be replaced with a new dome inserted in the Droid Factory bins some day were they so inclined.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Disney Hollywood Studios.
