R2-D2 [FOTD #2,430], but with a new head.
As of today this figure is only available as a convention exclusive - but various leaks and winks from Hasbro in San Diego make it seem like they would be likely to consider this figure's release again, somewhere, in different packaging. I'd say it's exciting, mostly because we rarely get new droids with new parts. Hasbro could've given us a new dome with no removable pieces and we'd have been pretty happy - this is above and beyond that. I'm happy. Go get one.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Hasbro as a sample, but it was sold at San Diego Comic-Con and also HasbroToyShop.com.
